Alongside turntable specialist DJ MY Name Is, Shadow Clone has been bringing the party to conventions all over the US since 2006 with panels, cosplay, dance parties and concerts! Geek Pop, Hip Hop, Nerdcore, or whatever you want to call it, his music is a fusion of any and all genres that creates a sound and environment where everyone is welcome! DJ My Name Is and Shadow Clone are always into shenanigans at conventions which can only mean one thing. It’s time to PARTY! It’s time to party hard! It’s time to party safe! But most importantly, it’s time to PARTY LIKE A GEEK!
