This weekend, Arizona bends some circuits, raises a few unicorns, pulls a sword from its chest, and has a SciFi & Fantasy convention.

And if you like this list of Arizona geek events, I post these every Thursday morning.

Come back often to stay on top of the local geek scene!

Thursday, September 1st

Electronic Music Night [Mesa]

  • Learn all about circuit-bending while enjoying some electro-tunes.
  • HeatSync Labs is hosting an evening on the subject.
  • Starts at 7pm at their new place in Downtown Mesa.
  • I will be swinging by, at least for a few!
  • Learn more at HeatSync’s blog.

*Update – @onlydoniayouknow reminded me that, speaking of Electronica, Deadmou5 is playing in Phoenix.

Unicorn Sparkle Attack [Tempe]

  • (Okay, that’s probably not what the event is actually called.)
  • A local unicorn farmer will be discussing her latest book.
  • Rainbows, cupcakes, glitter, and “precious moments eyes” should abound.
  • Includes a performance by the improv troupe “Unicorn Warpath.”
  • At Changing Hands, also starting at 7pm – and I will be  swinging by this one too.
  • Impale these details.
