News for Florida Supercon 2007:

Florida Supercon announces addition of new bands

Fort Lauderdale , FL - FLORIDA SUPERCON would like to announce the addition of three new bands to the show. Zombies! Organize!!, Chickenbox! and Select Start join the growing line up of musical talent set for the June 22 - June 24 show.

Zombies! Organize!! mix bass beats, rapid fire lyrics and top it off with electric piano and an accordian. "We, ZOMBIES! ORGANIZE!!, seek to foment an undead rebellion against humankind. For too long the walking dead have been forced to kowtow before their human masters. ZOMBIES! ORGANIZE!! will be the spark that ignites the powder keg that burns down the master's house." Fresh off of their appearance at Anime Supercon, Zombies! Organize!! are back for more! Find out more about them at

Chickenbox! was a smash hit at April's Anime Supercon and we are thrilled to announce that they will be appearing at Florida Supercon. Chickenbox! is a punk rock band native to Fort Lauderdale , and consists of Bob Box, Dick Chick and Herb. Chickenbox! started one day in 1996 when Bob Box was driving in traffic. He started screaming and just didn't stop. This made lots of people very angry at Bob. He needed a way to yell at people without making them mad, so he decided to start a band. In 2006 Chickenbox! was voted most likely to eat your food. For more information on the band, please go to their myspace page at

Select Start is the fusion of six musicians based in Gainesville, Florida, who combine their mutual love for video games, music, and their instruments (two violins, a cello, guitar, piano, and flute) to create a musical experience and sound unique to the video game music world. First formed in September 2002 in a small college apartment, Select Start premiered the following summer in a well-received open mic performance at The Shamrock, a local Gainesville bar. The show featured pieces from Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy 4, and Bubble Bobble. Since then, Select Start's repertoire has grown to over fifty arrangements, and they have performed in dozens of venues from libraries to bars to anime and video game conventions. Along the way, Select Start has garnered fans from all over the world. For more information on the band, check out their website at
