There was also a main stage for Entertainment Weekly Con-X, where musical entertainment was provided first by Gold Fish, then by Beats Antique. Beats Antique featured a great on-stage show with dancing, lighting, and a musical performance that the crowd really liked. The group is known for their experimental and varied genres of world fusion and electronic music. The photography captured the musicians performing a wonderful blend of percussion, stringed instruments and saxophone. Beats Antique’s musical performance also featured a fascinating and creative mix of dance performance, too.
