6 Nerdy Things To Do This Weekend In Phoenix [WE 04/27]

This weekend, Phoenix uses the schwartz, lives in Shatner’s world, geeks out at a library, and more.

Thursday, April 24th

Shatner’s World

[All Over]

Fathom Events is broadcasting Mr Shatner’s one-man-show to a few theaters in the valley. If you’re a fan of the Enterprise’s best captain (don’t deny it), or at least the actor who played him, you should have a good time. Show starts at 7:30pm.

Space Sheriff Shaider

[Phoenix]

How does Takusatsu Theater find these old Japanese shows? How do they collect them? How to they screen them at Filmbar every month? No idea, but it happens. Spend the week’s penultimate weeknight enjoying some of the weirdest stuff ever. Show’s at 10pm.

Zombies at Chase Field

[Phoenix]

Your children are pathetically unprepared for Z Day, but don’t you worry. Baxter, the Diamonback’s mascot, will be designating a few “Offical Zombie Hunters” amongst our youth this Friday night. There will also be zombie makeup artists on hand, and a large zombie walk. Nerdvana has the scoop.

LibCon 2014

[Chandler]

Their Facebook page doesn’t have a lot of info, but this little comicon at Chandler Library should be fun for a younger crowd (or the young at heart). Gaming, costumes, and general nerdery await you.

*Just Remembered* Arcade ’85

[Gilbert]

That one dude who busts out an 80’s arcade in Gilbert every once in a while is busting out his 80’s arcade in Gilbert this weekend. Say goodbye to your quarters. From 8pm to 11pm.

Spaceballs & Pizza Eating Contest

[Phoenix]

Dink dink! Dink dink-dink dink DINK! Dink dink dink. Dink dink-dink dink. Dink dink. Dink dink-dink dink. 9pm, Filmbar. Dink.

Particle Fever

[Phoenix]

Okay, I know half of the items on this list are at the Filmbar this weekend, but I couldn’t not mention all of these. This one is a documentary about the Large Hadron Collider, guys. Dope, yo. Oh yeah, word on the street is that Theoretical Physicist Lawrence M. Krauss will be swinging by. Fer realz.

Get out! Have fun! Do something interesting this weekend!
