Star Trek - Futurama

This weekend, Arizona rocks video game music, brings back Steampunk Street, beams in a Star Trek convention, listens to Stephen Hawking, and doth protest too much.

Believe me when I say there is a lot going on this weekend for we of the nerdy persuasion.

  • Listen to musicians play all of those famous repetitive tracks you know from video games, live.
