ZAPCON is near Phx the third weekend of April. Its definitely not on huge con/mag levels but for SoCal shizzies it's a quick drive. This is year 4 and its been huge fun every year. A grip of pins, some cabs, they don't really do music but if people are down we can probably get a show space or there are two venues relatively close. Just throwing it out there. I'll be there either way

Damn, that sounds awesome, but Oddwood will be in middle of a 7-weekend fair run.

 

Good idea though, at least for some of us, turning somewhat-close events into mini Shizz gatherings/shows.

So uh maybe this is the place to post this? but ZAPCON is near Phx the third weekend of April. Its definitely not on huge con/mag levels but for SoCal shizzies it's a quick drive. This is year 4 and its been huge fun every year. A grip of pins, some cabs, they don't really do music but if people are down we can probably get a show space or there are two venues relatively close. Just throwing it out there. I'll be there either way

The last two years I just went Sunday and it was real fun, but if people come out for it I'd consider getting a hotel room nearby since it's all the way in Mesa. The Minibosses did play the first year, so I don't think they'd necessarily be opposed to doing music, I just don't know about the logistics of time / space there.

True. And when I say ' a grip of pins and some cabs' its probably like 150+ pins and 75-100 cabs. Just saying if anyone wants to do it up, some of the phx crew will be there

Fuck it, may as well make a topic about it to fish for interest.

Raub is right, getting a hotel at the Mesa Marriott next door is pretty crucial. I live here and I *still* do it just because its easier. But anyway yeah I will hold off for after the Mag fever dies down. Just know: if you are relatively close to Phx: April 15-17 is party time AND ITS RIGHT AFTER RAUBS BIRTHDAY BRING SOME PIES AND SUCH

If there is music I could probably convince my band a couple of other chiptune + rock bands to come over from LA.

apparently they aren't really into pushing the music part again, and to be totally blunt its my favorite weekend of the year so i really dont have any interest in trying to run something myself. id much rather be enjoying the con. BUT if people wanna roll out it is still a rad time
