As we’ve mentioned previously, there’re a couple great events happening in Philly this weekend we think you should check out, so we’re recapping here. First of all, NerdFest, aka Wizard World Philadelphia starts this Friday and runs through Sunday. In addition to the usual comic guests, there will be a bunch of great sci-fi and b-movie actors on hand to sign your crap. Regulars like Lou Ferrigno, Peter Mayhew and Ray Park will be on hand, along with Ted Raimi, Tom Savini, Edward James Olmos, Darcy DeMoss and Max Brooks, author of World War Z. There’ll also be a partnership with the Video Game Expo to doubley nerdify the event this year, with competitions and retro gaming tables all weekend. These events are nuts, so get your tickets early! And if none of this has convinced you yet (what’s wrong with you?!), then maybe the premiere screening of Blood: The Last Vampire on Friday night will!
Secondly, this Saturday night is Kaiju Big Battel’s All Out War 2 at the Trocadero! If you can’t enough monster mayhem on screen, come watch tiny cities crumble live, right before your awe-struck eyes. As if all this wasn’t enough, there’s also the added bonus of the Rigor Mortis Revue Sampler Zombie Burlesque show as part of admission! Can a weekend get any better than this?! NO! Get your tickets now!
We’ll be on hand at both events, naturally, so if you can’t make either for whatever silly reasons, check back here. You can get updates and pretend you were there to impress (or offend) your friends.
