Seriously, It Was a Bunch of Nerds! J1 Nerd Party w/Stereotytans
By: Ryan Weiss
PHILADELPHIA, PA > May the Force continue to be with J1 Studios and may the continued monthly gatherings live long and prosper! The inaugural J1 Studios gathering occurred at Paddy Whacks Pub, located at 150 South Street Philadelphia, PA on June 10, 2017. This month’s theme: Nerd Party! J1 Studios President and Owner, J1-Con (Philadelphia’s #1 Anime Convention) chief organizer, and Black Tribbles member, Jason Richardson was boots on the ground outside Paddy Whacks hyping up the crowd with copies of the days Metro, which featured an awesome article about the upcoming J1-Con. (Wow! He really does a whole ton of stuff!)
There was a definite, “this is the place to be” vibe churning. As the crowd began to filter in, the crowd was hot with expectation. Some dressed in street clothes while others broke out their favorite cosplay for the evening. The party was designed exactly for this culture. A gathering of nerds; this was home. Superhero’s, anime themes, comics, and music all blended together. With J1 at the organizational helm, the comic infused band, Stereotytans guided the evening along with the interpreter, The Oracle. The smell of progression was in the air. Hyperion slammed his guitar strings against the pickups. Kronos beat the low of end the bass. Okeanus splashed the cymbals and Prometheus summoned his inner operatic-demigod thespian. The crowd was transported to a stereo-theatrical inner-dimension. Stereotytans are a set of interdimensional beings sent to earth to summon the inner spirit of the unknown and the uncharted.
As the evening continued, Sterotytans treated attendees to incredible reworkings of superhero theme songs! Heads nodding and fandom flowing, the J1-Studios Nerd Party was an inaugural success! This J1 Studios event was the first in a series of soon to be monthly gatherings revolving around this cultural nerd/geek/comic/anime phenomenon. Next month’s theme, “Dress to Impress”, is bound to bring in all types of upscale, high class cosplay and clientele. With talks of red carpets and paparazzi, this gathering is sure to be a radial occasion.
