Grab your cowboy boots, pinball skills, and an empty stomach, because Nerdist is headed back to Austin, TX for SXSW! This week (Friday, March 9 – Sunday, March 11) we’ll be taking over the delightful Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden on Rainey Street again for games, live music, giveaways, and much, much more. Best of all, entrance is totally free and you don’t need a SXSW badge to enter.
This year, Nerdist House highlights include a high-score tournament on Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Batman Stern pinball machines; a ton of live music including Geek & Sundry’s Jason Charles Miller and Dead Musical Capital, a macabre zombie marching band; custom alter ego silhouettes made on site; a Sunday jazz brunch, and much, much more. Plus, Alpha members enjoy exclusive access to food and drinks all weekend on us! If you’re not an Alpha member yet, there’s still time to sign up for a free month and join the fun at SXSW.
Check out the full SXSW weekend lineup below, and let us know on Twitter if you’ll be joining us so we can say hi!
