24 JUNE 2014
Adding to an already crowded Saturday night is another great event: the Thrilling Adventure Hour & Welcome to Night Vale cross-over. The two podcasts are joining forces for one night at the Spreckles Theatre on Saturday, 26 July at 8 pm. As City Arts in Seattle said of the cross-over event, “For fans of narrative podcasting, …this is the equivalent of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones doing a one-off split bill, but much quieter.”
From Thrilling Adventure Hour we'll have: Marc Evan Jackson, Craig Cackowski, Hal Lublin, and Mark Gagliardi and show creators Ben Blacker & Ben Acker; from Welcome to Night Vale, there will be Jeffrey Cranor, Joseph Fink and the voice of Night Vale radio, Cecil Baldwin. TAH composer/musicians Andy Paley and Jonathan Dinerstein will also be there, with special guests Molly Quinn (Castle), Janet Varney (The Legend of Korra), and others.
The show is open to all ages and does not require a San Diego Comic-Con badge. VIP ticket holders will attend a 21+ cocktail after party in the theatre's Grand Lobby with the cast, crew and guests. If you can't catch this event, the Thrilling Adventure Hour also has an 8:30 pm panel on Friday at the Con.
Tickets go on sale today, 24 June, at 10 am PST. If you've so far said nay to all the other Saturday night events - Zombie Prom, Star Trek, Chris Hardwick, etc. - consider this one, especially if you're a podcasting fan. It's guaranteed to be a fascinating show. As with all Comic-Con events, tickets will go fast, but they may sell out especially fast with this one.
