Anime New Years Event in Vancouver Washington

M.E.W. LLC is proud to present the first annual M.E.W. Convention in Vancouver, Washington. M.E.W. will take place at the Red Lion at the Quay from December 30th, 2008 through January 1st, 2009. M.E.W. is a New Year's cross genre celebration offering a diverse programming lineup of anime, costuming, fantasy, gaming, manga, science fiction, and much, much, more.

M.E.W. is pleased to welcome The Slants and A-Key-Kyo as our honored guests.

Two years after forming their unique and highly acclaimed band “The Slants” are bringing Chinatown Dance Rock convention scene, nation, world, and now to M.E.W. convention. This six member synth-pop band has received rave reviews from local papers and international magazines alike. With a beat to “melt your face off”, “The Slants” will ring in the New Year in style.

A-Key-Kyo specializes in J-Pop and great attitude as they bring you covers of anime theme songs with flare. They’ve kicked off conventions and performed for large audiences at festivals and conventions throughout the Northwest. A-Key-Kyo will bring you in for the music you know and leave you happy to know them and their sweet brand of live music.
