The sprint for Spring is intense. 11 events for this week alone. Seriously, everyone and Grandma Jones is having an event this week. So many choices to peruse. Go forth and geek out.
Don’t know what to do for the week? Well, check out what’s going on for this weekend.
GR8bit Live is an annual Video Game Music (VGM) concert which serves as a fundraiser to purchase board game and video game equipment for the local children’s hospital. All of the proceeds from the event went towards the hospital. For the first two years, the event was held at the Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids. Last year, a convention was centered around the concert and held at DeVos Hall. GR8bit Live IV returned back to being a concert for this year. This time around, it was a 2 day concert event with activities attached.
Friday, July 1st we will be at Schuler Books on 28th st. We will have:
-Free video and tabletop gaming
-A Pokken tournament!
-An acoustic set by the one and only Super Guitar Bros. These guys put on a set that is as good as anything you’ll see – get there early for the best seats!
ALSO, don’t miss the first ever, GR8bit Live! Gameshow. Only those with the most knowledge of gaming need apply, but all will want to spectate. Prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, (as well as freebies for those in the crowd!).
