Preview: Supernatural Official Convention @ Hyatt Regency Bellevue Hotel – 4/7-4/9, Fri.-Sun.
It’s nearly here! The Supernatural Official Convention begins tomorrow, Friday, April 7th. Running through Sunday, April 9th, the convention hosts talks, photo ops, meet and greets, among other things, and. . . a Saturday night concert by Louden Swain (I’ll get more into this band in a minute!).
The TV show, about all things supernatural (naturally), and featuring brothers played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, recently hit a milestone in fantasy TV by becoming that genre’s longest-running show. Plus, this weekend – and maybe even the coolest part of the convention – has both actors as special guests. Heads up: they are there on Sunday.
And back to Saturday night: at 10:15, Louden Swain performs over in the Theatre. And what’s the Supernatural connection? Supernatural‘s Rob Benedict is a guitarist and singer in the band. Now ten years old, the alt-rock quartet Louden Swain has seven albums, including this year’s No Time Like the Present. Rumor has it they’ll be joined onstage by Supernatural’s Mark Sheppard, Richard Speight Jr., Matt Cohen, Mark Pellegrino and Jason Manns.
