On Mar. 24 at Mad Planet, The Voodoohoney Anime Orchestra will return to pay tribute to classic anime series – Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop.  You can get tickets here.

The last time the orchestra performed was last year at Company Brewing for a Cowboy Bebop tribute.  For those who missed that show, this is your opportunity to see them again to perform songs not only from Cowboy Bebop soundtrack composed by Yoko Kanno, but music from Samurai Champloo composed by the late producer, Nujabes. Nujabes has been called the "J Dilla of Japan."

In addition to the music, there will be an anime cosplay contest. First prize will receive $150, second place will receive a $100 tab at the Jazz Estate and third place will get 10 tickets to the Avalon theater for the screening of the Cowboy Bebop Movie.
