2016 Year in Review Fall Part 1

2016 Year in Review Fall
September – October

These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. Like last year, they will be a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.

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!

Nonsense Night is going full nerdcore for this event.
Think COMIC CONVENTION but weirder & more intimate & in Detroit.

COSPLAY is strongly encouraged
(ANYcharacter from ANYuniverse is appropriate)
BOARD & CARD GAMES will be a thing that will be happening
(from Apples to Catan to Risk to Magic to Pokémon to Oranges)
L.A.R.P BATTLES will totally be a thing
(bring your own (foam) weaponry)
POKéMON GO will be going on
(there’s a gym at the venue & several Poké-stops near by)
STAR WARS will be prevalent
(of course)
ANIME
(cosplay a Studio Ghibli character or you’re a coward)
EVERYTHING “nerdy” or esoteric is welcome.
Nonsense Night is about YOU bringing the weirdness.
This is not a concert. It’s HAPPENING starring YOU & your friends.

Wesley and the Crushers
Zak & What Army?
