#BADKIDSPARTY! Welcome to the Thunderdome [Promo Video]

#BADKIDSPARTY is on the horizon folks! We’ve been tracking the pre-production process over on Facebook, pop over and get a feel for what to expect at tomorrow’s event. The 119 crew has been putting in crazy hours staging the space, so it’s high time you throw together a last minute costume and cop a presale before they’re gone. Don’t forget the ticket price includes a 4.5 hour hosted bar. AND we’ve just added a few fun perks to keep you busy through out the night. There’s a huge ‘build your own duel’ photobooth complete with health meter, an immersive, spinning forest / mobile of prop weapons, and Yung Pharoah providing live glitch visuals on the massive 2-story video wall.
