INFESTATION 3 photo evidence - a great success!

We can't thank enough all of you crazy people that came out and helped make INFESTATION 3 such a great success. That goes for all of the attendees, performers, entertainers, photographers, sponsors and those that came early to help with set-up. Without you all, the event would be just an empty venue space…it's the great energy, time and creativity you all bring to an event like INFESTATION each year that truly make it an epic time for all.

Entertainment line-up set for INFESTATION 3

We're excited to announce all of the creative people & talented performers who will be taking part in the 3rd Annual INFESTATION, just a few weeks away, on March 1st, at CLUB FAMOUS (2947 N Druid Hills Rd NE, Atlanta 30329).

Manning the knobs, tuners, sounds and visuals we have three diverse and well-known DJs who are sure to keep the bodies moving all night long. DJ Spider, who was voted "Charlotte's Best Party DJ" by Creative Loafing readers for 6 years; VJ Anthony, Atlanta's premiere video disc jockey with 20+ years under his belt and over 10,000 music videos in his arsenal….and a very special guest, DJ John C (who's coming all the way from Los Angeles, Calif.) and is resident DJ at the infamous industrial/goth club Bar Sinister in Hollywood. Rarely do us Atlanta dance fiends get a chance to move our butts with West Coast talent so we are extremely excited and honored to DJ John C with us! NOTE: A big THANKS to our friend DJ NEMESIS for hooking us up with John C.

Since the music is well taken care of, you'll have no worries about the actual dancing portion of INFESTATION 3 because Lucy Purr, Angie Starr, and Foxy Roulette will be grooving, spinning and shimmying all night long while the rest of us get our costumed geek on. A guest performer, Shay Blaze, based out of Birminghan, Alabama, will also be adding to the performance line-up, with her geek-flavored burlesque performances.

No Markster Con event is complete without some amazing photos. The talented eye and lens of Trent Chau will be set-up taking photos during the event, and we'll also have numerous Roaming Photographers on hand to help capture all the fun that's to be had by attendees at CLUB FAMOUS. Let your friends know you are planning to attend by visiting the INFESTATION: Halfway to DragonCon FB page HERE.

What's up next, after INFESTATION 3, for Markster Con? On March 14th come unleash your inner St. Patty's day party monster at BLOODY GOLD: Dance of the Zombie Leprechauns, at Legend Cafe. More info. at www.BloodyGold.com - this event is the 1st installment of 2ndFridaysATL.com - Atlanta's next evolution in monthly themed dance parties (every 2nd Friday)

INFESTATION set to invade a new venue for 2014

CLUB FAMOUS, a venue in the back of FAMOUS PUB,
is located at 2947 N Druid Hills Rd NE in Atlanta, Georgia
We're excited to announce that the 3rd year of the extremely popular INFESTATION, set for March 1st, 2014 (9 p.m.-2 a.m.), will be hosted at CLUB FAMOUS, located at 2947 N Druid Hills Rd NE in Atlanta.

With the closing of The Shelter, which hosted the first two INFESTATIONs (yes, that's right, The Shelter is now closed), event producer Markster Con is excited to find this new venue. In addition to having a large, open party space perfect for INFESTATION, it also has a large selection of drinks and a full kitchen menu available until 2 a.m. (21+)

CLUB FAMOUS, located in the back half of FAMOUS PUB also plays host to the monthly Monstrosity Championship Wrestling (from the producer of Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse) and hosted weekly viewing parties of the TV show FACEOFF when Atlanta make-up artist Roy Wooley was a contestant on the show.
