When the likes of Kirby Krackle, Harry and the Potters, The Doubleclicks, and H2Awesome descended upon the Hard Rock Cafe during Denver Comic Con, we just had to send MTV host Steven Smith out to see how these musicians were hoping to use nerd rock to make a difference.
Rock Comic Con, the brainchild of Jeff LaGreca of the band H2Awesome!, is a charity event in support of Comic Book Classroom. That program promotes literacy using comics for poor and socioeconomically disadvantaged children in Colorado. Proceeds from the both the con and the concert are both being used for the program which uses its curriculum to develop not only reading, but storytelling skills among kids.
