That’s right y’all. I am a geek and proud of it. I’m ‘that guy’ who lives the nerd lifestyle through and through. I learned my first computer program language at 6 years old. “Game” to me is both a noun and a verb. The number 42 often pops literary references in my head. My apartment is wired like the Batcave.
As part of that lifestyle, I have been an intricate part of the sci-fi / comics / pop culture convention scene in the SouthEast since 1999. Every con I go to ends up being a family reunion of sorts with parties and events that last 24 hours a day for three days straight. BUT… I don’t merely pay for my admission just to relax, make obscure funny references, and say ‘I’m home’. Hell no! Annual events of this magnitude needs showmanship and loud pumping bass to get the masses to party like there’s no tomorrow. I think I can help with that. =) …
That’s exactly why I’ve returned to Dragon*Con for three shows:
August 29 at 10:00 PM in Rooms 601 and 602 of the Marriott
X-Track presents “The First X-Track Party”
Cash bar will be provided by the hotel.
August 30 at 10:00 PM at the Atlanta Sheraton in the SAVANNAH Room
TrekTrak presents “The Rainbow Flag Party”
The Rainbow Flag Party is an event specifically for the GLBT community at Dragon*Con and will include a cash bar provided by the hotel. Music for this party will be high-energy pop tunes and dance remixes from the ’80s and ’90s, songs that are radio hits that everybody knows.
August 31 at 7:00 PM at the Atlanta Sheraton in the SAVANNAH Room
“Happy Hour at Ten Forward”
Federation personnel and Klingon warriors from around the galaxy meet, greet and snarl at each other in this enormously popular gathering, where anything can—and does—happen! Featuring hot dance music from the ’70s, ’80s, 90′s, 2000s and beyond! Snacks and refreshments provided by the USS Republic NCC-1371, the Atlanta chapter of STARFLEET International.”
As always, I will have CDs on hand for sale at $10 each.
Bring your dancing shoes. You’ll need them.
