Normally our little site here on the interwebs will only promote a convention if we are going there. Well, that’s not very fair of us if you think about it logically! After all, our staff is nicely situated up in New Jersey and while we love it there, it is not the center of the world (despite our claims). With that being said, we feel like as a site dedicated to having a good time at conventions, we should help promote some conventions that look to be good times.
That is why we are going to tell you a little bit about NERD POW! 2009 in Cincinnati, OH. We won’t be there due to prior engagements, but if you are into video game music or Nerdcore, then you owe it to yourself to go check out what is sure to be a fantastic Saturday in November. All the information you need can be found below. We hope to see some of you go there, and if you do, please get in touch and tell us what you thought about it!

Joining them on stage is Chicago’s own “Super 8-Bit Brothers”, who’s performed for television audiences as well as appearances around the U.S. Nerd Pow will also be the official Ohio CD release for their new album “Brawl.” Possibly the most flamboyant act on the Nerd Pow show has to be “MC Router”. The first lady of nerd core is coming up from Texas for the first time and debuting a new song for the Nerd Pow crowd. Hailing from New York is the video game rock band “Arm Cannon” who’s newest CD “Arm Cannon 2 – Return of the Attack of the Legend of Pizzor” includes music from classic NES games to the Ghostbusters theme song. “My Parents Favorite Music” (MPFM) comes at you from Tennesse, totes a new album from San Francisco producer Doctor Popular, as well as MC Frontalot’s producer and Baddd Spellah.

The album “Lost Reality” has been getting rave reviews from media all over the country as well as radio airplay from Cincinnati radio stations. Every event needs that wild card and Nerd Pow is no different. “Screaming Mechanical Brain” has toured all over the country with the Super 8 Bit Brothers and MSI. They were once voted “most dangerous rock band in America.” Also sharing the stage is “MC Cool Whip.” From Ohio this will be his first major show and he is out to prove he belongs in the scene.
