LEX & The Con Artists are a group of friends in the Bay Area who love anime, games, and music. We are huge nerds and thrilled to be playing at FanimeCon!
LEX & The Con Artists are the full-band version of LEX the Lexicon Artist, a nerdcore hip-hop artist currently based in Oakland, California. A graduate of UC Berkeley, LEX began the project in 2016 by writing and performing original songs inspired by her multicultural upbringing, her psychology education, and popular culture. Since then, LEX has become a mainstay performer at anime, gaming, and technology conventions across the country, connecting to thousands of fans with her relatable songs about nerd culture and personal identity. LEX and The Con Artists have played at Music And Gaming West (MAGWest) in Santa Clara, and Music And Gaming Festival (MAGFest) in Maryland. LEX herself has performed at the Official SXSW Nerdcore Showcase, and toured nationally with rapper and Adult Swim veteran mc chris.
