Burbank, CA (March 7th, 2016) – Legendary Digital Networks’ Nerdist, Geek & Sundry, and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls are returning to South by Southwest March 11th through March 13th for an action-packed, saloon-themed weekend, filled with rousing discussions, interactive gaming and one-of-a-kind entertainment at the fully-transformed Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden. All events will be free to the public, and a SXSW badge is not required.
Showcasing the most intimate and accessible appearances, the Legendary Digital Networks space will host some of Hollywood’s biggest names including Danny McBride, Walton Goggins, Keegan Michael-Key, Tatiana Maslany, Gillian Jacobs, Scott Aukerman, the cast of HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” Mike Birbiglia, Patrick Fugit and more.
go90, the presenting sponsor for the event, will have a prominent role in the weekend providing charging stations as well as food and drink specials exclusively for its users. Additional can’t-miss events include an interactive first look at Warner Bros. Television’s highly-anticipated new series Containment (series premiere Tuesday, April 19 at 9/8c on The CW) with an installation placing fans directly into the outbreak-centric series via a lifelike medical setting that transforms from a wellness center by day to a infected nighttime experience; a Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls-hosted conversation with Smart Girls co-founder Meredith Walker and other inspirational women, plus a Powerpuff Girls photo booth and cotton candy bar; a live-taping of Geek & Sundry’s “Super Fun Awesome Party Game Time” with surprise celebrity guests, playing the hilarious and irresponsible adult party game Telestrations After Dark by USAopoly; and Funimation will be showing off their new anime-centric Funimation Now streaming service.
