Gen Con 50 Kicks-Off with Lez Zepplin and Dragon’s Delight at Georgia Street

Gen Con 50 is almost here! We’ll be there to kick off the festivities on Georgia Street, located just outside the Indiana Convention Center! Sun King Brewing Company, creators of the official beer of Gen Con 50, will tap their fan-named creation, Dragon’s Delight, at approximately 5 pm at their annually anticipated kick-off party. Those 21+ are invited to attend, whether they have a Gen Con 50 badge or not.

Then, everyone is invited to watch Lez Zeppelin rock the stage at 6 pm in a FREE, all-ages performance. The New York City-based all-girl band has gained worldwide critical acclaim for their musicianship, passion, and gender-bending audacity they bring to the music of Led Zeppelin.

Celeste Marin, a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, also will play the Georgia St Party Tent at 5 pm on Wednesday! Celeste’s musical style is part indie, part punk, part r&b, and uniquely her own. Her current body of original work weaves punk, feminism, folk, & poetry into captivating melodies and curious themes.

Ready to game? Ready to celebrate? We’ll be there celebrating 50 years of Gen Con!
