It’s not often we find a sponsor who’s not only willing to donate beer for awesome attendees. It’s even less often, we find one that has a reference to Wolfenstein. Aardwolf Brewing Company is both of those things! They have an awesome new tap room at 1461 Hendricks Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32207, and we actually saw a beer on tap named the “wolfenstein” once! How awesome is that!?
Anyways, they’re contributing to the Free Beer hours that will be up for GAAM Show attendees on Dec 7! Cowabunga and cheers!
On Guard is one of GAAM’s favorite local bands. We’re not gonna sit here and tell you why, we’re just going to say, “Hey, check out their awesome ass video!”
Without Three Muses Clothing, GAAM wouldn’t be where it is today. But that’s a looooong story for another time. Right now we’re gonna talk about them because they’re an awesome supporter of the GAAM Show, and they’ll be doing some super cool giveaways at the show! Why? Just because they looooove cosplayers and gamers!
What? You don’t know who Three Muses Inspired Clothing is? Well they’re a unique costume and corset boutique that carries a variety of ready-to-wear costumes, corsets, pin-up wear and accessories. We can custom fit your purchases on-site, do corset fittings and help you style your outfit from wig to shoes.

On Guard is one of our favorite new bands this year by far, and it’s with great pleasure and honor, that we can announce that they will be returning to the GAAM Show!

Aardwarks are cool, and werewolves are cool…so AARDWOLF Brewery (a great microbrewery in Jacksonville, Florida) has to be the coolest of the cool.

We’ll announce specifics to exactly what time later, but in the mean time, you should check out Aardwolf on facebook, and please, say thanks for us. They don’t have to do this, but they did. And that says a lot about the kind of people they are.
Thank you, Aardwolf Brewery. From the bottom of our little GAAM Ninja hearts.

Switchblade Kult comes through with another GAAM interview! This time with Tyger of Storm Unity! Storm Unity has consistently come through and put together some amazing video game tournaments. And not just with GAAM, they put together their own events on a regular basis, so check them out on Facebook or Twitter, and keep up with them.
Also, stick around and watch for Geoff the Hero, who is consistently awesome.
On Guard was the first band to perform atop the Lost Woods and in the Night Sky at The Legend of GAAM (Games Art And Music) Show in Jacksonville, FLorida. They performed a live acoustic performance and even unveiled some new music from their upcoming EP release (which the party will be at 1904 Music Hall, RSVP here! https://www.facebook.com/events/448881428542121/
The took it down a notch and had music that was perfectly fitting for the evening, and also showed their versatility as a band that can throw down upbeat, fast tempo or super chill and lax sounds. Check out their performance captured by Iron/Glass Productions, and say “Wassup” to them. They’re super cool.
Floppy Entertainment, in my opinion, was one of the best things to come out of One Spark. They’re the first independent game studio in Jacksonville, and interesting side note, very fun to drink with.
Anyways, here’s a few quick words from them at The Legend of GAAM Show. If you listen closely, you’ll hear a quick hint about a secret game they may, or may not, be working on. You never know.
You can follow and talk to Floppy Entertainment on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Floppy-Entertainment/ or on Twitter at https://twitter.com/Floppyent

2 Mello is 2 for 2. Chrono Jigga, his mashup album of Jay-Z and Chrono Trigger is still a regular in my playlist, and now Nastlevania is going to be integrated into it as well. Listen to the FREE album below. That’s right, I said FREE. He’s pouring his sweat and blood into this, and giving it to all of us for FREE!
Artists like this don’t come along often, so whether it’s $1, $5, $10000000 dollars, donate something and keep creativity like this alive.
Here’s a great little snippet from The Legend of GAAM show, featuring one of GAAM’s favorite bands, On Guard!
And don’t forget, On Guard will be having their release party on August 31 at the 1904 bar in Jacksonville, Fl! RSVP on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/events/448881428542121/
That’s all I’ve got.
You might know Hidden Path Entertainment for Counter Strike, but they also do an awesome Tower Defense Game called “Defense Grid”! And they’re being cool enough to let us give away a ton of copies to The Legend of GAAM Show Attendees! But instead of waiting until the show itself, we’re going to go ahead and give 50 of you a chance to win early!Read More»
The GAAM Show wouldn’t be anywhere near as fun if it wasn’t for all the artists who expose their souls through their work. We think it’s part of our responsibility and debt to showcase and appreciate those brave and talented individuals as much as possible.
So as a small token of appreciation, we’ve made these fb badges for the juried artists (and i guess their fans!) to wear proudly proudly!
So artists thank you from the bottom of our pixel hearts! You guys make the world a more legendary place!
Oh, and your work is either up (or will be up shortly) at https://www.facebook.com/ILoveGAAM and http://gamesartandmusic.com/the-legend-of-gaam-gallery/. That’s probably important to know.
P.S. If it’s not, give us another day or two. We promise, it’s going up!
