Music Featured Guest: Cali Crisis

Cali Crisis is a synthpop duo made up of indie artist Plasmic and American Anime/Jpop artist Stephanie Yanez.

Once upon a cyberpunk time a nerdy girl with pink hair named Crisis had an idea. After being bullied day after day she thought it was time to make a friend. She sat down at her pink computer and started to program a friend. A friend that would be a little like Sailor Moon, Mima, Creamy Mami, Kiki, and a little like Lain. She created a magical android girl and called her Cali where everything begins and ends. Cali and Crisis now have joined forces through magic and music to take on the apocalyptic world. Nothing will get in their way.
