leetUP is the world’s first live nerd culture carnival.
An evening that includes:
ON-STAGE antics like:
- LIVE PODCASTING – with geeky celebs and interweb stars
- LIVE MUSIC – with resident performer Mike Relm, local DJs and a few special jam sessions with Kevin Pereira
- Audience Participation Competitions
And OFF-STAGE, it’s like Comic-Con, with:
- Old-School Videogame Arcade
- Geeky Art Stations
- Free Stuff!
- …and more!
The very first-of-its-kind leetUP happened on March 1, 2012 in Los Angeles… and it was AWESOME! Over 1,000 attendees packed Club Nokia in Downtown LA, making it a smash success.
We had live podcasting (including host Kevin Pereira, Kevin Smith, Chris Hardwick, Doug Benson, Felicia Day, Greg Fitzsimmons, Jimmy Pardo, Alex Albrecht, Epic Meal Time and Ask A Ninja) and performances by VJ Mike Relm and DJ R-Rated, as well as sponsored “zones” and giveaways from companies like Astro Gaming Equipment, Nintendo, MediaHound, ThinkGeek, Tru Protection, Acme Archives, iRobot, Murad, Magic the Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons and So You Created a Wormhole: The Time Traveler’s Guide to Time Travel.
Yup, it was pretty awesome…
…and soon, leetUP may be coming to your hometown!
