MeggaXP Pre-Party & Concert!

MeggaXP 2016 OFFICIALLY kicks off this year at The Foundry on September 16th, 2016 at 8:00 PM! This year we are proud to bring you not one, but TWO amazing geek-world bands to kickoff our show properly!

The basics:
Doors open at 7:00 PM! First band starts at 8:00 PM
This is an 18+ Show!
Tickets are available at the door, and are priced:
$10 if you’re NOT in cosplay.
$5 if you ARE in cosplay. (A shirt does not count. This has to be a legit costume to get the discount!)
Or, if you purchased a VIP Pass to MeggaXP 2016 – you get in free! (There will be a list since you won’t have your badges yet)

The Bands:

2d6 – a Nerdcore hip hop group that raps about ridiculous things like anime and board games! 2d6 was formed by the fusion of two rappers who found magical six sided dice, which granted them the gift of rhyme, and now they’re heading to Jackson to help kickoff MeggaXP 2016 in true nerd-style!

Wesley and the Crushers – Wesley and the Crushers KILLED it at the “Meggacon” 2015 after-party, and we are delighted to have them return to our planet to help start MeggaXP 2016 off in style!!! Come down to the Foundry and let’s show these alien musicians that Jackson, (and planet Earth in general) knows how to ROCK!!!

The Cosplay:

Come in costume and get photographed for the Meggaxp website to be adored for centuires to come! This is the first opportunity to showoff your cosplays at MeggaXP 2016, and it will essentially give you 4 chances to wear different cosplays during the weekend! Plus, just SHOWING UP in a cosplay gets you 50% off your cover charge!

The Guests:
Some, but not all neccessarily all, of the MeggaXP 2016 guests will be hanging out at the club for this event! Get a chance to say hi before there’s a time limit and a table between you! Check out the celebs in a much more natural habitat!

Support your local geek events.

JAFAX 2016 Review

2016 marked the return of the Japanese Animation Film and Anime eXpo (aka JAFAX). JAFAX began in June of 1996 at Kendall College as a one day event. It grew to become a two day event for the next year at that location. From year 3 to 19, JAFAX resided at the beautiful campus of Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. JAFAX 19 was the last year the event was held at GVSU. Unfortunately the event grew too big for the campus, since the attendance level was over 5000 people. JAFAX 20 signaled the transition from a free 2 day event to a 3 day ticketed event. DeVos Hall became the new home for the Grand Rapids anime and Japanese culture event.
