We are back at Kick Butt Coffee & Booze for our next Hometown Throwdown, on June 23rd at 8pm! No tournament this time, but we have a spectacular music lineup, including a visit from EyeQ all the way in from Orlando. And of course, there will be games all night – including The Multibowl, which I remind you is a game that you cannot play at home!
Attention Pixels fans – PAX South is this weekend, and we will be there!
We’re set up in the MAGFest Jam Space. All your favorite games will be there (as well as some brand new hard-to-find stuff – stay tuned for more about that tomorrow!), and of course we’re sharing a space with some of the hottest musical acts at the show, including Pixels regulars DJ R.O.C.K.M.A.N., Star Fighter Dreams, The ChocoBros, and Gimmick!
Come check in at the Jam Space and see what we’ve got going on!
We had a great night last night! Awesome show from Muchos Backflips, as well as a great Lethal League tournament and some free games to give away thanks to our friends at Team Reptile.
Come and join us at Kick Butt Coffee & Booze in Austin tomorrow night! It’ll be a Lethal League throwdown (and if you’ve never played it, you owe it to yourself to give it a try), as well as a performance from Muchos Backflips!
Plus, the first 10 people to take home a Pixels t-shirt will get a free Steam Key for their own copy of Lethal League, generously provided by our friends at Team Reptile.
Thanks to everyone for coming out for our most recent Hometown Throwdown—it was our biggest and best event to date!
Congratulations to Chris Taylor who took first place in our Tetris Attack tournament, as well as David Boyd and Lauren Liebowitz for fighting the good fight and coming in second and third. Huge thanks also to The Returners, for a spectacular performance (including the live debut of their new version of the Dire Dire Docks theme from Mario 64).
Thanks also to everyone who only came so they could try out Mario Kart without having to buy a Wii U. We know you’re out there. We understand.
And of course, thank you to Kick Butt Coffee, Music & Booze, our gracious hosts, for giving us all a place to drink and a place to play.
Keep your eyes peeled on this space for the latest updates, news, and Pixels events. We’ll see you again by August!
P. S.: The Returners, in all their glory:
Hometown is coming up this Saturday, and we’ve got more fighting games than ever!
Street Fighter, Skullgirls, BlazBlue, SFxT, UMvC3, and more—we’re even setting up so people can play Last Blade 2, one of our very favorite classics.
It all goes down from 2 to 6pm on Saturday, March 3, at Kick Butt Coffee & Booze on Airport Blvd.
Bring your arcade stick, your liver, and your game face. We’ll see you there!
…because it’s time for another Throwdown!
Saturday is coming up, so make sure you’re with us at Kick Butt Coffee! It’s videogames, coffee, and booze—an unbeatable combination.
If you’re not familiar with our friends at Kick Butt Coffee, this should give you some idea of what to expect:
The festivities begin at 1:30 on Saturday and continue all afternoon, so make sure you’re there! We’ve got retro SNES and Genesis fare, fighting games, and we take requests—so bring your game face no matter what your style is.
Not sure how to get there? THAT’S NO EXCUSE:
NOTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY BE DOING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN BEING AT THIS EVENT
I DON’T CARE IF YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED
Our live events will be going on a brief hiatus, as we’re moving apartments this month. Have no fear, though—we’ll be back on the week of August 6 (exact date and time TBD), and you can reach us here on the website or on Facebook/Twitter until then!
Our first Austin Throwdown was a huge success, so we’re going to do it again! Come back out to Mister Tramps on Monday, March 12th, at 7pm for more fighting games. If you missed the first round, this is your chance. We’d love to see all you Austin peeps drop by!

Hometown Throwdown is a one-night event devoted to all things gaming, with a special eye towards local competition. And for our first time out, what could be more competitive than an all-out brawl?

Join us at Mister Tramps on February 19, at 7:00pm, for a night of beer, good company, and fighting games!
Stay tuned and watch this space, we have big news coming up this week!
