Happy Tuesday, my friends, readers, and people who somehow stumbled upon the blog while looking for information on the 75 new Star Wars films that Disney is trying to put out! Welcome to another installment of Tuesday Tidbits, the weekly post that looks at Geeky events happening around the Hoosier state! We have a lot of great things happening around Indiana, including a book signing by the awesome Dr. Christina Blanch on Saturday, a new album dropping by the Shake Ups next Saturday, and more! We have an embarrassment of Geeky riches here, my friends, and it’s a crime to not take full advantage of it! So, let’s take a look at what’s happening, and get our calendars marked so we don’t miss a minute of anything we might be wanting to check out!
We are almost halfway through February!
- February 17th: Tales from the Crypt Signing at Aw Yeah Comics! There is a new Tales from the Crypt trade coming out, and shop owner Dr. Christina Blanch has TWO STORIES IN IT!!! She’ll be signing, along with guest Danica Davidson (who also has a story in the trade, along with works for Minecraft and Barbie!), at the shop from 11AM – 6PM!
- February 24th: Filk Concert Series – The Shake Ups in Ponyville! The Shake Ups have a new My Little Pony album coming out! This event at Games Paradise will not only be a great show by this local band, but it will also be the premier of their newest album!
- February 24th: NWI Comic Con! Returning to Schererville, this is a great little one day show featuring artists, costumers, and dealers!
- February 25th: Ash Comic & Toy Show! Returning to the Rodeway Inn on the east side, Indy’s longest running toy and comic show is back for 2018!
Now, let’s look ahead to March!
- March 2nd – 4th: Anime Crossroads! Held here in Indianapolis, this is a fun little anime show that features a lot of cosplay and local artists!
- March 10th: Five Year Mission at Radio Radio! Everyone’s favorite local Star Trek band, Five Year Mission, will be playing at Radio Radio in Indianapolis, and they will be joined by Creepin’ Charley And The Boneyard Orchestra!
- March 16th: St. Patrick’s Day Kick-Off Party! The Melody Inn will be hosting a show featuring The Shake Ups, S.M. Wolf, and Time Crash! You know how I feel about The Shake Ups, Time Crash was pretty awesome the last time I saw them, and I’m interested to check out S.M. Wolf! Check out the show!
- March 23rd – 25th: EvilleCon! This is another anime convention, this time down in Evansville!
- March 24th: Filk Concert Series – Il Troubadore and the Wookie Cellist! You have probably seen them on the stage by the Dealer’s Hall at Gen Con, or you might have seen them at other local conventions. Now, catch them at Game Paradise!
- March 30th – April 1st: Who’s Yer Con! This is a free (unless you want to pay, which I’ve been known to do!) gaming convention here in Indianapolis! Check it out, and support great local conventions!
- March 30th – April 1st: Indiana Comic Con.
Now, what’s happening with the blog, the blogger, and friends of the blog?
- This Week’s Photo: It’s Zoey, the Geek Pibble! The Geek Cave Office gets chilly, so sometimes the doggo gets wrapped up all nice and toasty warm.
- JoCo Cruise 2018! Folks, on Friday, I’ll be grabbing my flippy floppies and heading out to California to board the MS Oosterdam for the 2018 JoCo Cruise! Now, on this cruise, the internet is $0.75 a minute, so I will NOT be actively online from approximately Sunday the 18th to Sunday the 25th. I’m going to have all of the posts during that time scheduled, and hopefully WordPress works with me, because we’ll be sharing a cabin with my WordPress developer and his wife! So, enjoy the content, and I’ll see you on the 2nd of March!
