LOS ANGELES, Calif. (June 16, 2011) – This summer’s most anticipated animation, music and manga event’s, AM2, proudly welcomes the Flying Platforms to the Summer Festival stage and rings the school bell for a special scholastic themed “A.C. High” show happening July 1-3, 2011 at the Anaheim Convention Center in sunny Southern California. More info can be found at www.am2con.org
Producer/guitarist/vocalist Shin Kawasaki‘s live-performing outfit “Flying Platforms” brings new life to material from his self-titled album with a weirdly alluring dance/vocal performance by the MidTone Madeleines; a duo from somewhere outside of our society and/or planet. The collaboration between the Madeleines and SK offers a mixture of cyberpunk-infused live-tronic jam and an otherworldly aesthetic.
RING! RING! For ONE NIGHT ONLY, the maids and hosts of AniMaid turn their cute café into a High School of Moe where we invite you senpai/upperclassman to join our special closing night performance for AM2 2011!
