Returning from their fall tour across Canada in support of their new EP ‘For The Bear’, folk/prog metal warriors, Scythia will be gathering in Vancouver for a headlining performance for Aesir Promotions second annual Nerdfest on November 23rd at The Biltmore Cabaret.
Dave Khan, Scythia’s vocalist and guitarist comments: ”We are pleased to be awarded the opportunity to play at such an awesome convention once again. Nerdfest II is a great opportunity to share Scythia’s unique blend of storytelling, theatrics and metal with a diversified audience. We can’t wait to be at home among our fellow costumed enthusiasts and vendors of Medieval wares.”
The event will also feature live music from The Whiskey Dicks and The Carnival Band plus stage performances by the hypnotic belly dancer Mahsafoun, burlesque by the villainous and voluptuous vixen Precious Metal, fire dancing by Vespor Sephony, along with a special demonstration of weapon arts by Western martial arts school Academie Duello and Vancouver Traditional Martial Arts Academy.
