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!

MeggaXP’s “Blood Bash”

Michigan’s Entertainment, Gaming, Geek and Arts Experience (Meggaxp) invites you to EXPERIENCE horror like never before! Valentine’s weekend, 2017, join the people behind Meggaxp as they bring a horror show like no other to Jackson, Michigan…..the BLOOD BASH!

What makes Blood Bash so different? Well, let’s do a little…dissecting, shall we?

Celebrity Guests:
This is a horror show, right? Well, you know that the fine folks at Meggaxp are going to be bringing some cult classic guests to this show. We are still building our roster, but be sure to check back often to see who’s made a deal with the devil to be a part of this show!

Artists, exhibitors, and vendors:
First of all, we will feature over 60 artists, crafters, and exhibitors brining nothing but horror merchandise to the con for your sick and twisted souls to purchase! From artwork and prints to diabolical demonic bears, Blood Bash will have something for everyone!

Horror Film Festival and Marathon:
Next, Blood Bash will feature over 20 hours of horror films from classics like Night of the Living Dead and the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to new, twisted creations from short film producers in the first ever Blood Bash short film festival! More details on this to be announced later, but know that it’s going to be insanely good.

Horror Short Story Contest:
Think you’ve got what it takes to tell a twisted tale? Well, then, show that Stephen character who the REAL king of horror is – by entering our Horror Short Story Contest! More on this will be announced soon, but start creating your craziest stories, and prepare to tell them to the world! (Short stories = 2500 words or fewer, so start writing!)

My Bloody Valentine Dinner and Dance:
It IS Valentine’s weekend, after all, and FINALLY someone is doing something for the lovers of the dark and deranged – – – join us at the Commonwealth for a full fledged dinner followed by a horror dance that’s sure to be a BLOODY GOOD TIME. More on the My Bloody Valentine Dinner and Dance to be announced soon.

Horror themed gaming:
This IS brought to you by the people who run Meggaxp, and as such, you KNOW there’s GOT TO BE SOME GAMING GOING ON! Take a trip to the Atrium Ballroom and visit a museum of sorts, where you can learn about and play some of the video game industry’s most controversial and scary games of all time! From Night Trap (Sega CD) to Friday the 13th (NES) to Left 4 Dead (XBOX 360) and more – there’s going to be a lot of games to check out and even some challenges to enter…if you dare.
Not only will there be video games, though, the good folks at ThroatPunchGames will once again be demoing some of the darker tabletop games from the past 30 years, including one of our all time favorites from growing up – the Nightmare VHS Board Game! BEWARE THE GATEKEEPER! There will be several games to check out that’ll keep your horror itch scratched until Halloween comes around.

Cosplay Contest:
How could Meggaxp have an event without a cosplay contest? Yes, kiddies, we will feature a cosplay contest – where people will compete to be crowned Blood Bash Champions for 2017! We will have a few different categories, so check back for more on this!

This show is still quite a ways out, and we will be adding things to it as time goes on…keep checking back….if you dare!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHH *evil laugh*
