Never before have all the multifaceted sides of the d20 of Nerd Music come together for one amazing evening of dorky decadence! Chiptunes, Nerdcore Hiphop, Video Game Metal, Sock Puppet Rock, Dementia Parody, and anything else you can imagine a nerd playing on a keytar will be there.

Nerdapalooza is a full-service nerd arts and music festival. Previously the show has been very nerd core hip hop oriented, which has been great, but this year more than ever we're doing a lot to include a lot more VGM and chiptune artists.

This year we've also moved from out of hotel venues and moved on to REAL concerts venues in downtown Orlando. The Beach and the Social have seen acts like GWAR, Reakwon the Chef, Atmosphere, MURS, Saul Williams, the Aquabats, and many more. This places are serious so expect a nice huge stage and an EXCELLENT sound system. Don't believe me? Check out these pictures from the Beacham:

YES, the Beacham does have 3 full bars on the concert floor.**

**I can neither confirm, not deny, that all/any of these bars will be in service during the event. I assume at least 1 will be.

So you can come for Nerdapalooza, and stay downtown to enjoy the famous Orlando night light like Church Street Station and Wall Street.

Nerdapalooza is similar to MAGFest in that it's a huge nerd gathering in a hotel, rocking out, and listening to some seriously sweet nerdy music. Nerdapalooza is DIFFERENT in that there are no panels, no other events at all, really. It's just music, and fun.

Confirmed Attendees:

  • Doug "The RamaSauce aka sgtrama aka The Ramaniscence aka Ramalicous aka the Master the Ancient Art of Rama Sutra" Arley
  • starla
  • Shael Riley & the Ty Guenley Backhair (because I'm MAKING them come this here)
  • Obtuse
  • Ben the Briggs
  • Level99

If not for the fact that I am not allowed in the State of Florida, I would attend.

Stupid Governor...

I'm planning on making it out to this one. I'm also thinking of staying the entire next week for my birthday on Aug 8th.

I've never been to Disney World so I must go. Would love to have any of you go with me.

What the hell did you do to get Rick *bleeping* Scott to boot you out?

I don't think I can make this, but being a Florida resident and a Nerdy Show fan, I feel obliged to take some vacation time and visit. Just curious, anyone driving from South Florida the day before?

I can't say *for sure* but it's a definite possibility. The most realistic alternative is Amtrak.

There is now a 65% percent chance I will go to this. Just curious...does anyone have any extra space at the hotels?

EDIT: I should mention I will pay for part of the room.

Currently i'm staying at a friends place during Nerdapalooza. He doesn't live nearby so I'll have to rent a car. So If we have enough people I could go without the car until monday and spend that money on a hotel instead.

I need to know that you're in before committing to the hotel room.

Of the people I know are going (starla, myself, fusion2004, Suzums, Shael, B Briggs) me and starla live essentially closer to the venue than the hotel. fusion2004 lives in the same neighborhood. I know Suzums, Shael, and a few of our other friends are staying with me and starla, and I know BBriggs +1 are staying with fusion. So you may be able to fit in with them if there's no hotel rooms.

Between all of us there will be more than enough cars for transport.

Edit:

Oh duh, we updated the line-up.

Nerdapalooza just added:

I just looked at the price of rental cars and its like 25 bucks a day (Pretty damn low) so i'll probably stay at my buddy's place.

I need to know that you're in before committing to the hotel room.

And I can't commit until I know what lodging options are available...what a catch-22...

In all seriousness, I want to wait until I hear back from a potential job before I go. My current budget is $500 for the whole trip. The plane alone will be $300-350, and with Amtrak I would miss work. I'll be getting the $70 pass, and food will probably be around $50. Do you know how much the hotel room costs (if we split it)?

Worst case scenario I'll stay at my parent's house and only go one day, but then I'd miss all of you guys. :( That or get my sleeping bag out of storage.

EDIT: Does your friend have room? It's okay if he doesn't.

Just wanted to update and let you guys know that we've officially added Ben Briggs to the pre-party line-up, which means he'll be performing twice. Once on Friday, and again on Monday.

Additionally we just added a 2 night show by the Protomen. The first night being their regular act, while the second will be there Queen cover album.
