Iron Giant

This weekend, Phoenix gets down with giant monsters, lovable robots, hobbits, trippy sci-fi, nerdcore, and more.

So many things going on this weekend, you may need a TARDIS.

Thursday, Sept 20th

Tokusatsu Theater [Phoenix]

  • A giant snake, terrible dialogue & dubbing, over the top everything – unintentional comic gold.

  • Taking the stage this weekend and running through Oct 14th.
  • At the Phoenix Theater – learn more.

  • At The Film Bar Phoenix - lots of show times all weekend.

  • Journey over here for official info.

The Dr Diabolic Show [Phoenix]

  • It’s time for another installment of Dr Diabolic!

  • The geniuses behind The Foundation will then turn those stories into scenes.
  • Starts at 8:30pm at The Torch Theatre – and while I’m slightly nervous, I’m also pretty excited.

Talk Like A Pirate Day Celebration [Glendale]

MC Frontalot & MegaRan

  • Perhaps you are a big Kingdom of Loathing player and are partaking in KoL-Con 9 this weekend.
  • If so, you’ve probably already planned on attending this show.
  • If not, you can still get in! Just $10. Starts at 10pm.
  • Here’s my post on MC Frontalot coming for more info.
  • Very high probablility that I will be showing up for this.

There’s also a comic book event benefiting victims of the Aurora shooting, and the Flagstaff Festival… of Science! going on.

Go forth, nerdlings. Fill the valley with your mightiness, and your lives with crazy stories.

Hope I see you at some of these! Let me know if I missed anything, that we may all partake.
