Tickets for this glorious event are a mere $20.00. We say mere because $20 is such a small price to pay for gamer heaven. Music, games and booze. Along with a community of people just like you. That’s some priceless shit right there! Tickets can be purchased on ticketmaster. Well there is plenty left, this event is selling out fast. You’d best order now or lose your chance to take your place in gamer history.

Doors open at 11:00am and you’ll be shut in till Midnight (Note: I’m sure the will let you out if you need to leave but why would you want to?). Players must arrive and sign in by 11:30 am with their Tournament Organizer. Gamers are only allowed to enter 1 major advertised tournament. There are concert tickets available if you do not wish to enter a tournament. Concert will begin at 7pm after tournaments are completed. Gamer will still be able to play games while the bands are performing (gaming in front of a live kick-ass band, how cool is that?)

I dunno if it’s obvious or not but we are sure as hell excited about this event. The music, the games, the venue, a chance to win some money? Oh, how it tickles our nerdy bits in ways never thought possible. We sure as shit will be in attendance and hope to see you there. Will be floating around, drinking, playing some games and hitting on girls we don’t stand a chance with. Should you bump into one of use feel free to tell us how awesome you think nerdbastards is. Will give a free nerdbastards sticker in return.

Here’s a Who’s Who rundown of the players participating and responsible for GameUnderground Video Game & Music Festival:
