Week in Video Game Inspired Music 5/10 - 5/16

< --Previous comic | Next Comic -->

In news this week, I think the biggest thing is Events, events, events! Looks like the guys at Nerdapalooza have announced a ton more artists. Same goes for the east coast rockers at Bit Gen Gamer Fest. Finally I am glad to announce our own show next month in Los Angeles. WEST COAST WIGOUT 2! You can find more details, including grab some presale tickets through this link. Now onto the news!

Nerd Invasion - November 6-7 2009 Pensacola, Florida

A few months ago an amazing event was brewing and has finally exploded to the surface like an incredible volcano which rather than lava, seems to rain down some sort of nerdy type of liquid...Bawls possibly? Anyway, with the failing of that analogy I would like to introduce you fine folks to the coming invasion. Nerd Invasion.

Now before I go and make more terrible analogies to aliens and social awkwardness or what have you, I will just hand things over to the Nerd Invasion press release.

Start Time: Friday, November 6, 2009 at 7:00pm End Time: Saturday, November 7, 2009 at 12:00pm

Silver Screen Entertainment Complex 7280 Plantation Road Pensacola, FL

This is Nerd Invasion. And it's going down November 6th - 7th, 2009, in Pensacola, Florida! THIS IS AN ALL-AGES EVENT!

First one on your plate is Letters VS Numbers episode 014a: "Endless Possibilities" This week, not only is Chibi Ma hanging out alongside MisterB and I once again, but we also have a second guest in the form of Shinobi Onibocho from nerdcore duo Krondor Krew! We have ninjas, we have mages, and we have all the music and banter you know and love!

PART B:
We are back with part b, which is simply known as Letters VS Numbers episode 014b: "Fire Breathing Octopus". Why? You just have to listen to find out. Beyond the aforementioned sea creatures we also have Shinobi and Chibi Ma for the second half of course. We also discuss more Final Fantasy, funeral dressers, hookers, and more! Not to mention our ever popular beef section. Who are we beefing with this week? FIND OUT!
