This is a journey of an artist striving to make the story a reality. The journey of true passion in music. From performing large venues (District N9NE) or local events, nothing but excitement with a large amount of love comes from Metatron. Where #InfiniteHearts comes from. Coined by #Metatron himself, it is a representation of how he feels for the music scene as well as his own created pieces. Music has no bounds, and so does the love for it and all who immerse themselves in it. This is the story; unifying all under one umbrella and painting the picture of #InfiniteHearts in the sky. Enjoy the music and inspiration.
Come to our 1st Celebration of Cosplay's Founder: in preparation for our even bigger MYRTLE COSPLAY BIRTHDAY BASH in June
Myrtle Rebecca «Mō-rō ‘yō» Douglas Smith Gray Nolan was a Gemini, born in June 1904. She was an active member of the Los Angeles Science Fiction Society, and a proponent of the 19th-century constructed auxiliary language Esperanto, meant to foster communication and understanding between people of all cultures.
Between the years of 1938 and 1958, she edited three separate long-running sci-fi fanzines («editing» including all of the typing, mimeo, and physical work required to manufacture the zines) and wrote editorials for several major early sci-fi «pro»-mags in the early ‘40s. Basically she was the mid-20th century equivalent of a prolific, influential blogger. She married three times, had one son, and shared a decade-long romantic and creative relationship with fellow fan Forrest J Ackerman, with whose help she sparked off a phenomenon that would develop into costume-loving fan culture we know today as COSPLAY.
Come celebrate Mrytle's legacy as we dance, make friends, and have the best CosPlay time in Philly- under the magical musical medium of TronMeta & his mystical melodies,
