Meet The Misfits & Osaka Popstar 2/6/13 7PM

Jeezum Crow! What an amazing event to start the year off kids!

Forbidden Planet and Misfits Records are proud to present an in-store event of the utmost radical proportions. We plan to fill Forbidden Planet to the brim with Sexy Super-heroines and live undead punks!

But what does it all mean?  Well… It means on Wednesday February 6th from 7 to 9 legendary Punk Rock Icons and Horror Enthusiasts The Misfits (Jerry Only, Dez Cadena, and Eric “Chupacabra” Arce) as well as Pop Punk Poster Child for the Geek Culture movement Osaka Popstar (John Cafiero) have decided to launch their newest records right here at Forbidden Planet in NYC! New albums did you say? Why yes I did. The Misfits “DEA.D. ALIVE!” is available on a gold vinyl 12″ limited to 1,500 pieces worldwide, and also available on CD while Osaka Popstar’s “Super Hero” is only available on a white vinyl 12″ limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide. Jerry and Dez of the Misfits are special guests in the backing band on the Osaka Popstar 12-inch and John of Osaka Popstar co-produced the new Misfits live album, so nearly everyone can sign both titles depending on what the fans would like!

Unholy hell in a hand basket!

But wait there is more! What would an Forbidden Planet Signing be without some contests and prizes!  The fine folks over at Misfits Records have made sure we had plenty of goodies! Anyone that purchase both new releases from Misfits & Osaka Popstar at the event will be entered to win a set of the rare Misfits “Psycho in the Wax Museum” 7inch and the Osaka Popstar X JuiceheaD “Waiting Room” 7-inch with sleeve art by Shepard Fairey. 5 winners will be chosen at random to win and one grand prize winner will receive a Misfits screen print by Tom Whalen and the Osaka Popstar X JuiceheaD “Waiting Room” screen print by Shepard Fairey (signed by Osaka Popstar, JuiceheaD and Shepard). Christ on a crutch, that is alot of cool stuff!

So mark your calendar and keep your eyes glued to The Daily Planet and our many social media outlets for more news on this killer event and all things Forbidden Planet!
