We’re keeping it rolling here with more out of town acts next month. Crazy! This time we’ll be sporting Dual Core, Star Fighter Dreams and Bitforce from down in San Antonio, and LEX all the way from Oakland, CA. Crazy!

Not to mention drink specials, booty bangers, and all the games your little heart could desire. Come thru!


Hometown Throwdown: Feb Edition!

Come on out to Kick Butt Coffee at 8pm on Saturday, Feb 3rd!

We’ll have Amanda Lepre and Descendents of Erdrick rocking your face off, your usual games, and a special appearance by THE MULTIBOWL.  $10 at the door, with $3 drink specials all night.

What is the MULTIBOWL?  Some of you may have experienced it at PAX South 2018 at our set up, but for those of you who haven’t been lucky enough…

MULTIBOWL by Bennet Foddy (QWOP, Getting Over It) and AP Thomson (Beglitched) – is a two-player challenge of skill and knowledge, across exciting moments in over 300 historical games across dozens of hardware platforms. It’s the first videogame collage, maybe.

Come out and see us, and experience the majesty of the Multibowl yourself.


Hometown Throwdown – Amanda Lepre at Adelbert’s Brewery

Pixels returns to Adelbert’s Brewing in North Austin on March 3rd to host Amanda Lepre, bringing her unique style of fantasy nerd rock. Enjoy some unique Austin craft beer with games and music.  Come on out and join us, starting at 7:00pm!

This event is free and open to the public, so come on down and party down with us!

Y’all made our first Nerdcore Nights in Jan such a success that we’re returning to Karma Lounge on Saturday, February 18th at 9:00pm for another round.  We’ll have more dancing, more thumping tracks, and more games, all for no cover!  Come on down and see us!

And if that isn’t enough, we’ll also be hosting the first ever show by the Returners with their new line-up.

It’ll be only $5 for a night with more games, more bumpin’ phat trax, and having your face melted off on top of that.  You can find the Facebook event here.

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to our last throwdown of the year last Saturday at Kick Butt Coffee.  It was a bit of an emotional moment as Lobos played his final Austin show with The Returners.

Looking forward to ringing the new year in with y’all.  Keep your eyes peeled for our January event!


Nerdcore Nights!

Hometown Throwdown: Starwhal!

Pixels - Starwhal.jpgNow that we’re through with the filthy casuals of Street Fighter 5, we think it’s time for a REAL competitive game….

STARWHAL combines everything you’ve ever wanted in a game: Narwhals and Space. So strap on your modified tooth-horns, buckle your seatbelts, and prepare yourself for neon insanity.

We’ll have all our usual drink specials, games and more, plus DJ Rockman will be spinning that night for even more retro 80’s insanity.

Don’t know DJ Rockman?  You can find everything you need right here!
