It’s like the Discovery Channel—with beer! Born in Boston,
Nerd Nite is a phenomenon that has quickly gone global,
spreading from Austin to Amsterdam, Liberia to Leipzig,
and now to North Adams. Enjoy funny-yet-smart presentations beginning with one about Mumblecore: The Film
Movement that Didn’t Roar. Whether you’ve got a Netflix
queue full of mumblecore or this is the first you’ve heard
of the “m” word, there’s much to muse aboaut in these
homegrown indie movies that forged the first film movement of the 21st century.
The show moves on to Hey, Where’s My Robot Girlfriend?
The Singularity, Sperm Bots and the Future of Sexual
Technology explaining how hybrids of sex and technology
are flourishing in contemporary culture. Will we be able to
disable our foes with weaponized orgasms? Can you learn
to love a robot, and can a robot learn to love you? Bring a
few friends, have a few cocktails, and learn something new.
“Nerd Nite continues to
walk a fine line between that feel of professional polish, and an anything-goes atmosphere… that
bit of tightrope walking is what continues to keep people coming back
for more.” -nerd-ny.com
