The New York Anime Festival (NYAF) today announced musical artists UNICORN TABLE, HAPPYFUNSMILE, and Voltaire will all perform at its inaugural event December 7-9 in New York City.
Japanese pop group UNICORN TABLE is renowned on both sides of the Pacific for its energetic alternative rock, and anime fans will know UNICORN TABLE from its debut album, uncountable, available from TenBu Productions as well as “Fly Away,” the theme song to ADV’s Jinki:Extend, and “Closer,” “Distant Love,” “Infinity,” and “Amai Yume” from FUNimation’s School Rumble. HAPPYFUNSMILE is a New York City-based band popular for its pop and rock renditions of traditional Japanese folk songs. Voltaire is America’s gothic subculture’s most prolific artist, famous for music that uniquely melds the baroque with the macabre.
‘I am delighted to be adding music to the broad mix of entertainment that we will be providing at The New York Anime Festival,’ notes John McGeary, NYAF Show Manager. ‘UNICORN TABLE, HAPPYFUNSMILE, and Voltaire are terrific acts and I know that our audience will eagerly anticipate all three performances. Anime fans are a very diverse group of people, and so we’ve brought together three musical acts that I hope will appeal to fans whether they’re young-or-old or new-or-otaku.”
Samples of UNICORN TABLE, HAPPYFUNSMILE, and Voltaire’s music can be heard at the New York Anime Festival’s website. Admission to all three concerts is included with admission into NYAF, and tickets can now be purchased online at newyorkanimefestival.com.
