J.Bone plans Nashville Takeover with 100 Monkeys

24 10 2009

Jackson Rathbone will be hosting the NewCon Festival in Nashville November 6-8.

100 Monkeys will be headlining the festival and there will be Twilight- and New Moon-inspired art competitions and poetry/fan fiction contests. 100 Monkeys will also be part of an open jam session on Saturday, November 7. Anyone attending the festival can bring their instrument to jam with the band for two hours. The band will pick one lucky fan to join them on stage Saturday night during their concert at The Wildhorse in downtown Nashville.

“We wanted to do something different that inspires people to be creative,” said Rathbone. “NewCon offers all kinds opportunities for people – whether they’re writers, musicians, or artists – to share their talents in an interactive way that’s fun.”

To make sure everyone has time to fully enjoy the festival, there are only 400 tickets available. More cast members and bands will be announced every week leading up to the event.

Kimbra “the hands of Twilight” Hickey will be on…er, hand for a meet and greet (shaking those hands? Priceless!) and it’s rumored other cast members will be added. Stay tuned!
