Orlando Nerd Fest dazzled and drew geeks from all over during its successful first iteration last year, and now it’s back with new combo moves sure to delight local nerdy elitists. With a packed lineup featuring some of the most recognizable names in nerdcore (MC Chris, Nuclear Bubble Wrap) along with some of our favorite not-quite-nerdcore locals (E-Turn & SPS, Moonmen From Mars), ONF looks to be upping their game this year. Even the main venue, Orlando Science Center, is steeped in nerdery. Friday and Monday take place at the Geek Easy, with free shows of surprisingly strong caliber bookending the bigger days at the Science Center. Between sets, catch book signings, documentary screenings, a costume contest and tons more.
