*** Reminder: The NerdFest Date has been moved to 4/15! ***
1:00pm Lightsaber Demo & Performance
A Long Time Ago... a story was told that sparked a fire in many hearts. To fan that flame, the Golden Gate Knights, a San Francisco Bay Area not-for-profit social group that offers experienced instruction in "Star Wars lightsaber-style" choreography to its members, was created. With their classes, you will become an expert at saber choreography, spins, flourishes and a whole lot more.
2:00pm Nerd Rage: The Great Debates
Moderator, Marc Abrigo, challenges the funniest stand-up comics, podcasters, and even pro-wrestlers to take sides and square off to settle some of geekdom’s hottest (and often times, weirdest) debates: how many muscle cars does Vin Diesel need to beat Captain America? Is Steven Universe a better frontman than Super Mario? And just what the hell will a lightsaber accomplish in the world of the Matrix? All will be settled -- are you ready to rage?! You can find Nerd Rage! The Great Debates podcasts, here!

5:00pm DJ Set by Danny Delorean of Turbo Drive
Turbo Drive is a night of new music, at DNA Lounge in SF, that pays tribute to the retro-futuristic synth sounds of the 80s. Think Blade Runner meets Miami Vice. Did you like the soundtrack to the movie Drive? We can't get enough of that. Fast Cars, neon lights, and sometimes, Robocop.
