MarsCon - Forces of Darkness

Comedy Music Track

Since MarsCon 2021 will be virtual we will be able to connect performers and audiences anywhere within the reach of the World Wide Web. For all those who have previously been unable to come to Minnesota (in the winter...), welcome!

Our 2021 Comedy Music Track (formerly the Dementia Music Track) will feature new voices and faces, as well as some of your long-time favorites.

The Comedy Track, like all of MarsCon this year, is $free, (but donations to MarsCon in general and/or donations to the Comedy Music track in specific are gratefully accepted. Why does it still feel like 2020?)

The Forces of Darkness shall safely assemble in front of screens on March 12th - 14th, 2021

MarsCon is a fan-run science fiction convention for all ages held every March in the Twin Cities area. At MarsCon you’ll find panel discussions, parties, guest of honor presentations, music of many kinds, our art show, film/anime room, science room, dealers room, charity auction, and masquerade. Our comedy music track is virtually a con in itself, and attracts a nation-wide audience.
