Nerdy South events June 25-july 1st
Howdy-Ho, Nerderinos! We apologise for being a day late and a dollar short this week. Sometimes you wake up with a case of the Mondays. An extremely severe hungover, never-ending explosive whiskey shits case of the Mondays. No regrets is another way of saying you ain’t living it to the fullest. Here’s my picks of nerdy-to-dos for the week before I make sick all over myself again…
June 26th: Tongues Out Puppetry
New Orleans based LGBTQ+ Puppetry ensemble, Tongues Out, presents a free performance of shadow puppet theater at The Bakery. Inclusive & free night of Puppetry. Can’t make jokes at a good night like this. Just go and enjoy!
June 27th: ASIFA MIXER
The monthly mixer for animation lovers and professionals change venues to our old standby of the Joystick. Yup…Joystick just got that much nerdier.
June 28th: Shitfaced Shakespeare
You can impress a special one that you’ll be taking in a night of the finer arts with this performance of Romeo & Juliet…but anyone familiar with Shitfaced Shakespeare will know it’s just another excuse to get, well, Shitfaced. And we call that a Win-Win.
June 29th: The Toasters
There is no musical style more nerdy then ska. Or at least that is what people kept telling me for all the years I spent playing in a ska band. Let the haters hate because you’ll be too busy skanking, Rudy!
Dancing not your thing because you have no soul or too white to maintain a steady sense of rhythm? How about taking a movie outside at the park with your furbabies? If that’s more your speed then check out Bark In The Park’s screening of Best In Show. Furbabies welcomed, turtleneck vests with loafers required.
June 30th: Clownvis Presley
Part clown. Part Elvis. All Taking Care of Business, baby. Don’t miss this opening act for the Blasters at the Earl tonight.
July 1st: AWE
There was a time when pro-wrestling was one of Atlanta’s most favorite past times. AWE is a homegrown promotion who is keeping that legacy alive and well. This ain’t “sports entertainment” spectacle. This is southern fried rasslin’ at it’s finest and it’s still real to me, damnit!
Oh hi! How was your weekend? oh really? that’s great to hear. I got a chance to check out Wham City as they performed at The Drunken Unicorn on Friday. They are a comedy & video collective group. I then went to cook-out and ate cheeseburgers. It was fantastic. Okay, here’s a list of events […]
You can’t complain about not having anything to do. This week is extremely busy with lot’s of fun events to check out. “Weird Al” Yankovic will be at the Tabernacle on Sunday. It’s a sold-out show so hopefully, you already have your tickets. You can also come hang out with me and Adam Darby at Battle […]
I’m surprised by how much is going on this week. I think you’ll find something on this list that you’ll wanna check out for sure. Hope you guys enjoy the rest of your week and have an even better weekend. I’ll be back on Monday with new stuff. Monday, April 2nd Big Boozy Nerdy Game […]
