Posted by Cap on March 6, 2010

friday party 375Nerdy Show is sponsoring a concert at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas and none-other than the PROTOMEN are headlining.  The show is being put on by Consequence of Sound (the music site Cap works for) and Rock It Out! Blog at Republic Live, right in the heart of Austin – Friday, March 19th.  Not only will there be free PROTOMEN, but nine other awesome acts:

YOU SAY PARTY! WE SAY DIE! * SWEET APPLE * HURRICANE BELLS * THE HAPPY HOLLOWS * SURF CITY * LOOK MEXICO * MALE BONDING * LIGHT POLLUTION * CHAPERONE

Ten fantastic bands, free admission, liquor, energy drinks, and waffles!  Awesome local Austin store Game Over Videogames will have a vintage gaming area including the original Mega Man titles – and Cap will be attending!

If you’re anywhere in the Midwest you need to head out for this event.  Heck, if your anywhere at all you need to head out!  This isn’t the only nerdy show at SXSW either, despite reports of its death, there’s an outstanding Nerdcore Showcase on Wednesday the 17th featuring MC Frontalot, Schaffer the Darklord, YT Cracker, and more.  And, earlier that day, there’s ANOTHER free Consequence of Sound party.
