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.

- Enjoy these details.
Friday, Sept 21st
- Enjoy Brave Sir Robin, huge tracks of land, and killer bunnies.

The Dr Diabolic Show [Phoenix]

“The Neighborhood” with Lightning Octopus [Phoenix]

MC Frontalot & MegaRan
