Nerdfest Propaganda

Nerdfest 2008

April 28th, 2008

Nerds rejoice: Save vs. Poison proudly presents Nerdfest 2008. Located at Load of Fun Studio, events start at 4:00 with Magic the Gathering and some old time Dungeons and Dragons. We will also have Atari 2600 on a giant projection screen, Sega Genesis [Sonic fans cheer], and probably some Nintendo. To help the brain, there will also be science experiments and math lecture by a real life mathematician. Bands get going around seven with local grind overlords Shit the Bed, Star Wars hardcore Sarlacc, Harry Potter noise Order of Merlin, a Dune mini-opera by Bene Gesserit Witch, and the AD&D thrash of Perverse Osmosis. We may also have a harpist if all goes as planned. Mountain Dew and Pixie Sticks for all. Bring your dice, bring your deck, bring your test tube.

4/19 Aftermath

April 28th, 2008

We are having some technical difficulties here at Save vs. Poison but also want to make sure that we keep the internet fed.  Following the links should allow fourth to sixth level adventures to see what lies beyond.

Pides of March Show

March 22nd, 2008


Save vs Poison’s March 13th show went swimmingly. Impressive performances by Maverick, Scoundrel, the frigging incredible Shit the Bed, and Perverse Osmosis were capped off by a lecture on Pi and the eating of pie.

*** Plus: we got press! Baltimore City Paper Blog has some very nice things to say about us! Thanks City Paper.

Since visual representation of data works, here is a picture of the aforementioned Maverick, who will be superstars someday.

Here is Shit the Bed, who played a cover of “Reign in Blood”:

America’s Next Pot Model

March 7th, 2008

Save vs. Poison proudly presents America’s Next Pot Model on April 19. Come see OFM, Puddle, and Perverse Osmosis (among others) as we celebrate an illegitimate activity with a legitimate fashion show.

Pides of March Tribute Show

March 7th, 2008

Save vs. Poison continues to cram  bizzaro metal down Baltimore’s throat with a Pides of March [that’s 3/13 for those without a deep knowledge of  Pi or Shakespeare] show at the punk rock haven known as The Sidebar.

In honor of three momentous events-the death of the ultimate DM, Gary Gygax, Pi day, and Cesar’s fateful Ides of March– your favorite AD&D thrash band Perverse Osmosis headlines an evening of pie, platonic solids, and metal. Doors at 8ish, bands start around 9. Cost is five gold pieces. Free pie at midnight, plus a surprise math lecture. Come get stabbed in the back and then make a saving throw.

Show lineup:

Maverick [80s style hard rock]

Scoundrel [80s hair metal]

Shit the Bed [grind/thrash]

Perverse Osmosis [hi-speed, low-fi thrash chaos]

We aren’t kidding about the free pie either.  Grab your crusty punk friends, your Guitar Hero addicted mates, and your burn out party members, and get ready to fight some goblins and steal some treasure. Shrine of the Koa-Taun
