Luis Coronel

Sunday, September 10th

At the age of six, he began singing in a church choir.  After a boxing-match, he decided to sing a song for the crowd; the performance was recorded. He also posted various videos of him singing on his social media pages, which he had thousands of followers and likes.  He was signed by Del Records at the age of sixteen.  Some of his singles, “Mi niña traviesa,” “Será más fácil,” and “Escápate” have reached spots on Billboard charts. In September 2013, he released his debut album Con la frente en alto and with three weeks of its release, it earned a spot on the Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart. It was certified gold in the Latin field by the RIAA for shipping 30,000 copies.  Coronel won the award for “New Artist of the Year” at the 2014 Latin Billboard Music Awards.   He has garnered a nomination for Male Artist of the Year in the Regional Mexican category at the 27th Lo Nuestro Awards. via artist wiki

Tucson Comic Con

Friday November 6th- 8th

Now in it’s 8th year, the homegrown comic book convention has blossomed from a small hotel convention room with a couple vendors and some stormtroopers into a 20,000+ person attendance and a couple 100 vendors.  The Mom + Pop small business is a rare gem as far as comic book conventions go in that its focus is still true to comic books and doesn’t play to lowest common denominator with film and tv celebrity.  It’s focus is on comic books creators.  With an extra focus on Arizona creators.   Things are a little bigger this year with Cosplay taking over the main entrance hall and a ton of programming and panels. Friday Night floor preview Saturday night costume contest and convention exclusive promotions and prizes. Oh yeah, a film festival too.
