Yes we are bringing back VOLTAIRE to Knoxville.
If you missed him last year don't miss this show!!!!!!

Voltaire is often described as a modern day renaissance man. He is a singer/ performer, creator of comic books, animation and toys.
As a musician, he is a songwriter whose music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a Con audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his song "Brains!" from the Cartoon Network show "The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy".
Check out his websites:
http://www.voltiare.net
or for his myspace
http://www.myspace.com/voltairenyc

Along with our special Guest performer, those wild KG DJs Arkady & Bone will be doing their thing and spinning all your favorite songs to shake your gothic booty too!
Hope to see you all there!!!!

I'll definitely be there....I never pass up the chance to see Voltaire :)

I wonder what merch he will have with him....and I wonder if it will be the same stuff he will be selling at dragon con...

And, I hope he plays some of my favorites!

Well, what am I saying? I don't know of any of his songs I don't dig!

Per usual, there will be several of us getting together at Urban Bar before the show (~8ish) for pre-drinks, food and socializing.

I think its too hot to go anywhere. Plus the smoke and the people I don't like, and well, you guys have fun. He is pretty rad...I think my first intro to him was Chi-Chian which Auralfixation played for me years ago. I wish I was as multi-talented.

:( It sucks that I didn't get to see ya!

The show was awesome, as usual.

The KG djs really know how to kick it....and Voltaire never disappoints!

My only complaint...were the fucking idiots that kept heckling voltaire. But, I'm convinced you can't go to a show anymore ANYWHERE without running into idiots.

My hubby and I were talking earlier about how we got into Voltaire.

In 1998 we were visiting our local comic shop, picking up our weekly comics...when out of the corner of my eye I spotted a comic with quirky art. I looked at the title, and it read 'Oh My Goth"...I had to have it, lol.

The guy that wrote it and did the art had the best sense of humor I'd ever read.

At the time I was working as a receptionist for Fox, and could sit and surf the internet all day. Anyways, it was either in his comic, or I did a search...somehow I happened upon his site. I learned that he had another comic...Chi-Chian.

The artwork in Chi-Chian was even more amazing.

He also had a CD coming out...The Devil's Bris. I was like...oh, my. This guy is so multi-talented...and HOT.

Soon after that, I learned he was going to be at Dragon Con that year at the Sirius booth. He was the main guest they had that year that I was REALLY looking forward to.

When I first got to Dcon, in the dealers room....I went to the Sirius booth. But he was gone :( I bought all of the Chi-Chian's I needed...except one...Issue number 1. They didn't have it.

They told me to come back later and Voltaire would be back to sign stuff. I saw him walk up a couple minutes later, and got him to sign all of my comics.

I told him that it sucked that I was only missing issue number one of Chi-Chian, and I'd been looking for it to no avail. He looked around from side to side, and when he saw noone around, told me to hold on a second.

He reached into his backpack...pulled out a comic, signed it, and handed it to me....he told me...don't tell anyone I did that....it was the issue number one I needed :) I was the most elated fan girl ever!

After him being so cool, I would have supported him in whatever he did...even his music. Luckily though, I fell in love with his music too!

Gah, sorry about gushing, and I know I've probably told this story before to some people....

Voltaire really deserves all the success and the fan base he has created. Hell, one of the reasons I love Dragon Con as much as I do...is I get to see Voltaire perform at least 2 or 3 times while I'm there.

Anyone else have any voltaire stories?

Well I probably came off as a total bitch to him but, eh, whatever.

I went and saw him in nashville a couple years ago and was gonna say hi but he is constantly surrounded by groupies.

And I said that to him last time he was here, "oh yeah I was gonna say hi in nashville but you were surrounded by groupies" and he was like "those are my friends." And I was like, "yeahh friends, groupies, whatever"

I mean I think its great that he's so personable, but really you can't have 34,000 friends, can you?

He is very good to his fans, seems he always replies back to others on their myspace's and doesn't act like he's too cool for anyone.
