Among those coming in July: actor Wil Wheaton, comic artist Joel Gomez, comics artist and writer Kevin Eastman, Smallville’s Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum, and Mickey Dolenz and Mike Nesmith of the Monkees. Yes, the Monkees.
Why will the Monkees be there? When was the last time they made music or were “of relevance” past the death of Davey Jones? Not trying to be rude...that one just seems out of left field.Responds Wesley:
It’s gonna be okay. It’s a big place, so if you don’t want to go see them you don’t have to.Adds Kyle:
They still have a lot of fans. It's just nostalgia! I remember watching them on Nick at Night (I think).Notes Cameron:
I think it'd be cool to see them!
The Monkees represent pop culture. Not this minute's current pop culture, but pop culture nonetheless.Suggests Patrick:
They need money. And DCC can't book major celebrities on the 4th of July.That's right: Concerns about Denver Pop Culture Con aren't limited to the programming. There's also the timing of this year's con. Will the schedule conflict with Fourth of July festivities? Or does it instead provide a great way to have a blast on the Fourth?
