After a long absence due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, BAR Con has announced their first virtual event.

BAR Con: Virtual Edition will feature performances by Odyssey Eurobeat, Pheri, and Alicia (from Kyozo). As a special treat, this will also feature the premier of Phoebe’s (of Pheri) brand new solo album.

Like so many events, BAR Con is adapting the virtual event model. Due to the shelter in place orders, many organizers and artists have been hosting virtual events as a way to connect with their audience. It’s unclear when the standard show will return.

BAR Con is a monthly event that combines ones love of anime, video games and J-Rock into a one night festivity. The event would normally be hosted at the Back Bar SoFa in Downtown San Jose on the first Friday of every month.

The last BAR Con at the Back Bar SoFa was back in February. A March event was planned but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
