While the first eight tracks from the Friday Pre-Party are all free, we would suggest giving the remaining songs from the main event a listen and buying the digital album for just $7, or if you’re a hardcore fan, physical copies shipped to your doorstep for only $15.

Nerdapalooza’s head honcho John “hex” Carter has just announced on the official website that the festival will be making a bigger and betterÂ comeback than ever before for 2012! Nerdapalooza 2012 will take place on the weekend ofÂ August 3rd to 5thÂ at The SocialÂ andÂ the BeachamÂ in downtown Orlando, Florida. Both venues will be much larger than previous Nerdapalooza locations;Â The BeachamÂ will act as the primary stage, holding over 1,200 attendees while The SocialÂ will act as this year’s secondary stage that will hold around 500 people.Â The line-up for Orlando’s biggest nerd festival is also looking amazing as Metroid Metal, Danimal Cannon, brentalfloss, the OneUps, and Random Encounter will be returning once again to rock your world, while other performances will be announced soon.
Touted as a ‘brand new experience’, the festival will be sure to please those who plan to return this year.Â The Friday Pre-Party is also coming back as a free event with live performances and free food & beer at the Social, with the main performances occurring at the Beacham starting Saturday, August 4th.Â Â Tickets for admission and announcements for discount hotel prices will also be made public on the Nerdapalooza website within the week, so be sure to check back or head on over to the official website to get your nerd on.
Think you know video game music? Think again.Â Since the band’s inception in 2000, The OneUpsÂ have long been praised for their diverse approach to VGM as a specific genre. At ThaSauce, we really do appreciate and applaud those who have quite a persistent determination to push past their own boundaries of musicianship. As a musical collective that continuously changes up the VGM scene through a variety of experimental styles, we would definitely say that this band truly delivers.
The Unofficial PAX Community DVD team have come together to deliver what we think is one of the best OneUps performances to date. Did you happen to miss the OneUps at this year’s MAGFest X? With consistently stunning multi-angle shots and such high-quality camera work, you really do feel like you are right there in the front row. Special thanks to the Unofficial PAX Community DVD guys and the OneUps for allowing us to relive one of the best experiences of MAGFest!
