All right, then, how about this?:
One live event hosted by Kevin Pereira. On-stage podcast sessions with Chris Hardwick, Kevin Smith, Felicia Day, Doug Benson, Greg Fitzsimmons, Jimmy Pardo, Alex Albrecht, Epic Meal Time, and Ask a Ninja. A musical performance by VJ Mike Relm. DJ R-Rated providing the ambiance. And more to be announced.
You will want to be there. It’s the inaugural leetUP, the brainchild of Mr. Pereira with Charles Hirschhorn and the folks at iam8bot Productions, and it’s intended as a celebration of nerd art and culture. It’s coming to Club Nokia in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 1st.
The event will have the above-mentioned appearances, plus interactive “experiential zones” with all sorts of videogames and technology for you to try out between the acts, like a nerd carnival. And, in case you’re into it, they say that Cosplay and other exhibits of fandom will be “encouraged and rewarded.” There’s more at the official website, which you’ll find by clicking here.
Tickets are on sale now, and you can get them by clicking here, or through Ticketmaster locations, the Staples Center box office, or at iam8bit’s store at 2147 W. Sunset Blvd. in L.A. There are VIP tickets available that include a pre-show reception with some of the talent, a VIP gift bag, access to a private VIP lounge, and reserved balcony seating. There are also cheaper tickets, too, so it’s pretty affordable for everyone. And they intend to take this sucker out on the road in the near future, so if you’re not in L.A., keep an eye out and there might be a leetUP in your neighborhood soon.
