Nerdapalooza, the largest nerd music festival, has started announcing acts for this year’s show. The show brings several different genres of nerd music together for one big party. This year the show is August 3-5 at the The Social & The Beacham in Orlando, FL
Their headliners for this year are the electro dance /party duo Koo Koo Kanga Roo and Mega Man tribute band The Megas. Koo Koo Kanga Roo is currently running a Kickstarter for a new albume, 30 songs about 30 animals in 30 minutes.
The show includes other video game themed bands like Descendants of Erdrick, their first time at Nerdapalooza, Random Encounter, The OneUps, and brand new Final Fantasy rock opera troupe Those Who Fight.
On the 8-bit side is first timer Bit Brigade, who performer video game music and a speed run of the game they are covering, they will be the pre-party headliner and performing during the weekend, so two chances to catch them. Creator of “With Lyrics” series of videos and albums brentalfloss and chiptune mixer/guitarist Danimal Cannon.
They have several great nerdocre hip hop likes for this year. Nerdaplooza mainstay Schaffer the Darklord, hacker and friend on mine Dual Core, the worlds premier comic book rapper (he also does Firefly, Harry Potter, Downtown Abbey, and not watching Doctor Who), Adam WarRock, his usual partner in rap Tribe One will be joining him on stage and doing his own performance, and the ThoughtCriminals. Frogsuit a brand new Nerdcore group that is a made up of My Parents Favorite Music, 8-Bit Duane, and Joey Zadjino will get to show off their new stuff at the event.
Nerdaplooza will also be host to Epic Win Burlesque from New York City for some shows that are both geeky and sexy. Not sure which turns me on more.
I am sure they are not done with bringing more bands and acts for the weekend, so keep up with them to see who else will be able to make it. Tickets for the event are limited, so if you really want to go make sure to per-register.
