Ah, the video-game cover-band scene. It’s small, but has a devoted following, and if there are Godfathers of it, it’s The Minibosses. The band plays the Comic Expo (the replacement for now-defunct Fanaticon) after-party at the Emerald Lounge, along with Metroid Metal and Danimal Cannon. Before the after-party, check out the all-day comic book and pop-culture convention at the U.S. Cellular Center. It’s all costumes, sci-fi, gaming and wackiness. Geek out! Expo is $5, free for kids 12 and under. After-party is $3 if you went to the expo, or $5 if you didn’t. 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. ashevillecomicexpo.com.
