Friends, pals, habibis,
We are finally in possession of critical information concerning Nerdcore Risings premiere at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin. We have three screenings which means triple the nerdy fun and triple the chances to eat authentic Central Texan BBQ.
Heres the deal:
Sunday March 9 at Alamo Lamar 2 (1120 Lamar Blvd S) 10:30pm
Tuesday March 11 at Alamo Lamar 2 (1120 Lamar Blvd S) 10:30pm
Friday March 14 at Austin Convention Center 1pm
For those in the super-keen-on-Nerdcore category, we have a treat: After the first screening (March 9), we invite you to throw down with us at the films premiere party. All you need is your ticket stub and the Will to Fun. A little guy by the name of MC Frontalot (who actually stands at a 62 tall) will be performing something called Nerdcore. Frontalot will be followed by a guy named Prince Paul who will be DJing something called legendary hip hop. Does that sentence earn a double take? I do believe it does! Thats right, MC Frontalot and hip hop hero Prince Paul will be in the same room. Stranger things have happened (for example, theyre in the same movie).
And, if youre interested in helping us with street-teaming activities while were in Austin, please send me an email. Wed love to have your help! Especially if you live there and know whats up.
Theres more helpful details below but its kinda boring and overly logistical so Ill officially end the blog here and let that information be a part of the oft-neglected postscript zone.
Cant wait to nerd you up in Austin,
negin & gang at Nerdcore Rising
How to get Tix:
You can spend a large amounts of money and buy a festival badge. If youre a Film Geek, this is the best option for you because youll see a bunch-load of films before regular America sees it and youll be very interesting at cocktail parties. You can buy those here.
Aside from the badges there is a "general film ticket" sold by Waterloo video in Austin for $70 and it allows you to see all movies at the festival after the badge holder seats have filled up. Find out more about the 70 bone deal here.
But most of us are regular humans who just wanna buy one ticket to see one movie. Tix for the normals goes on sale 15 minutes before show time. BUT they suggest you get there an hour before to line up, especially if its a smaller venue (ours is somewhere between medium-ish and not quite small).
Sunday March 9, midnight till we-get-kicked-out-o’clock
