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 again for everyone that came out to our first ever Rainey St. Rumble last night! We had a great time, and it means a lot that ya’all braved the cold just to come out and see us!
Congratulations to our Nidhogg Tournament Winners: Dylan, Luis, and Travis, and a big thanks to Amanda Lepre. If you liked what you heard, check her out at http://amandalepre.com/ and her awesome band at: http://www.descendantsoferdrick.com/
The Returners have invited us to come and run games at their upcoming Album Release party, at the One2One Bar on Lamar, south of the river. We’ll have WiiU, Lethal League, and perennial favorite: Tetris Attack! running all evening, in case you need a brief break from having your faces melted off by the line-up. If seeing the Returners isn’t enough to get you out of the house (and if it isn’t, what’s wrong with you?), then the least you can do is come out to see us!

We’re returning to Kick Butt in August (a little later than usual, the 4th Saturday) for another tournament, with another show!
This time, we’ll be facing off with Puzzle Bobble, and welcoming Brazilian Space Program to the stage. We were down at the Scoot Inn last year, and heard a rendition they did of the Sagat Theme from SF2, and we knew we had to host them.
We’ll be playing best 2 out of 3, single elimination rounds on the 1995 Super Nintendo Release of Puzzle Bobble (AKA Bust-a-Move)
Sign ups are first come, first served, and we’ll be capping the tournament at 16 entrants this time, so be sure to sign up as soon as you can. We’ll be taking sign-ups in person at the event starting at 8pm, or you can sign up by shooting us an e-mail at [info at pixelsbar.com]
- First Place: $60 Kickbutt Gift Card
- Second Place: $30 Kickbutt Gift Card
- Third Place: $10 Kickbutt Gift Card
In addition to our Puzzle Bobble tournament, we’ll have Mario Kart, Hidden in Plain Sight, Broforce, and all our other classics.
$5 cover for the night (until 11), but the tournament is free to enter.
Don’t know Brazilian Space Program? Check them out here!
We’ve got a neat little announcement for ya’all!
On Thursday, July 24th, we’ll be running a game room at NEST Financial’s First Anniversary Party. There will be Mario Kart, No Brakes Valet, Broforce, and others. We’ll also be announcing our next throwdown there, so be sure to come if you want to hear about it early.
Not to mention giveaways, food, drinks, a band, and inflatable jousting! The best part? It’s totally free, and open invitation, so come out to check us out!

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:
