Tonight's the night! INFESTATION set to pack Club Famous, in it's 4th year

It's the day so many of us have been waiting for, the halfway point to the Dragon! And with that, INFESTATION kicks off it's 4th year tonight at Club Famous (21+).

Doors open at 9pm ($10/$13) and we'll be going strong till 3am. For those of you who have not been to Club Famous before, the entrance to the venue is located in the very back of Famous Pub – so use the front entrance (of Famous Pub) and walk all the way back, past the main bar / tables and pool tables and you'll see the double door entrance. Parking is plentiful and free and if you are hungry, Famous Pub's kitchen will be open well past midnight.

Everyone will get a numbered wristband upon entering. At 1:00am, we'll pick random numbers and those who are lucky enough to be wearing them, will get free tickets to future MarksterCon.com events. If you are in costume and want to enter the Midnight Costume Contest, please visit the GIRLS OF THE CON table and sign-up for the contest, which will stop taking entries at 11:30pm.

Friday the 13th announced as return date of INFESTATION 4 in March 2015

Pictures from the 3rd annual INFESTATION in 2014
It's official - Friday the 13th (of March, 2015) set for INFESTATION IV!

Costumers and freaks alike will converge on Atlanta, GA again as we reach the halfway point to D*Con. And with that, witness the return of INFESTATION for a 4th year. The annual event will be extra special in 2015 as it'll fall on Friday the 13th and sure to draw it's biggest crowd yet.

Hungry for a good time (and an excuse to break out their favorite costumes) attendees will revisit CLUB FAMOUS in the North Druid Hills area of Atlanta. This is the same venue that helped make INFESTATION 3 in 2014 such a success, boasting a large dance area, stage, plenty of seating, a full bar and kitchen menu and lots of free, safe parking. See the 2013 INFESTATION video below, created by JayPrescott.com

Complete with roaming photographers, awesome DJs, performers, a midnight costume contest and more, attendees to INFESTATION IV on Friday the 13th in March are sure to at least quinch their thirst for a short while as they'll still be 6 months from Labor Day weekend as tens of thousands of worldly geeks take over.

NOTE: MarksterCon.com (the producer of INFESTATION) decided to move the event back from it's originally (tentative) date of March 7th due to Cardboard*Con and the East Village Super Hero Pub Crawl, both happening on that same date. With all 3 events attracting many of the same fans, MarksterCon.com wanted to show support for the other events and try to make sure that as many freaks and geeks in the Atlanta area could still enjoy those events while having the opportunity to also make it out to INFESTATION (now on Friday the 13th of March).

Stay tuned for more info. on entertainment, etc. but for now, get the date down for INFESTATION 4 – March, Friday the 13th, 2015 at CLUB FAMOUS. For those of you on Facebook, please go "Join" the official FB event page HERE and invite your fellow freaks and geeks.

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.
