Nerd Meetup March 1st With Kevin Smith & More

Attack Of The Show host, Kevin Pereira, is promoting a Nerd event at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA.  The event will have what geeks want: video games, lifestyle (toys, music, food), podcasts & technology.

Kevin Smith (Clerks) will also make an appearance, along with Felicia Day (The Guild).  The one day event will start at 7pm and I’m guessing will end around 2 am.  Attendees are encouraged to wear their favorite costumes and will be rewarded for it.

Tickets will be available through ticketmaster but there is no price yet.  I’m guessing, they’re trying to gauge the interest for the event.

Below is the press release:

Los Angeles – Jan. 24, 2012 – leetUP, a new live events series, designed as a celebration to share in the experience of nerd art and culture, will debut at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 1. The event is poised to bring an intimate dialogue, a social and conversational setting, to a festival of nerdly delights through panels and podcasts, music, games and movies, as well as tech and toys. leetUP was created by Kevin Pereira, Charles Hirschhorn and creative collective iam8bit, in association with Goldenvoice and AEG LIVE.

“We wanted to celebrate all that is nerd — our love for the internet, podcasting, tech, music, videogames — and remix them in a way that makes us social again,” said Pereira. “We’ve basically designed an intimate and experimental playground, for the discerning nerd, that will constantly evolve at each stop.”

The event will be hosted by Kevin Pereira (host/producer of G4’s Attack of the Show), with programming that includes on-stage podcast sessions with Kevin Smith (Clerks, SMODcast), Chris Hardwick (Nerdist), Doug Benson (Super High Me), Felicia Day (The Guild), Greg Fitzsimmons (The Howard Stern Show), Jimmy Pardo (NeverNotFunny, Conan), Alex Albrecht (Diggnation, Totally Rad Show), Epic Meal Time and Ask a Ninja, with a special musical performance by VJ extraordinaire, Mike Relm. DJ R-Rated will also provide ambience throughout the evening.

leetUP will also treat attendees to a variety of experiential zones, created exclusively for the event. These one-of-a-kind interactions with futuristic technology, videogames, and other lifestyle products will provide for the carnival playground between performances.
