This weekend, Phoenix drinks with dinosaurs, does the time warp, and sings with Bat Boy.
Thursday, Apr 23rd
Local video game makers are opening their doors for you to wander in, wide-eyed. Check out what’s getting worked on and hear speakers talk about marketing video games, world-building, and more. Should be pretty radical.
Goes from noon to six.

Come for the beer, stay for the dinosaurs! Or combine the two. I dunno. Their site says: Paleontologists reveal the truth – what beers did dinosaurs drink?! If that’s not good enough for you, how about Speed Date a Scientist?
Show up at the Arizona Museum of Natural History from 6 to 10pm.
I have the perfect event if you like older things and super men. Starting at 5pm the Tempe Center for the Arts is gathering pop-culture aficionados and watching The Adventures of Superman, and Mad Scientist. Enjoy!
The Film Bar is closing out their month of cult films with a boomstick of a movie for you. Hail to the king, baby.
Starts at 10pm and there are showings all weekend.

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.
If the title Bat Boy: The Musical doesn’t convince you to check out this play about everyone’s favorite Weekly World News cover, I’m not sure what will.
Enjoy the crap out of it at the John Paul Theatre at Phoenix College starting at 7:30pm. This is the last weekend.
Haven’t used your fishnet stockings in a while? Well, if you need an excuse, you can head down to Mesa and get your Rocky Horror on.
I couldn’t tell when it starts. If someone knows lemme know and I’ll update the post.
*Thanks for the update, Robin!* “The Rocky Horror Picture Show presented by Frankies Fishnets ……doors open at 9pm, show starts at about 10pm…..at the AZ Event Center on Country Club and Southern, there’s a full bar too!”
Have fun, you crazy kids!
