Ponies Rock-Out At ÜMLOUD! (18+)

Love video games? Enjoy Rock Band and other music games? Want to mingle with folks in the gaming industry? Love donating money to help makes kids in hospitals happier? Enjoy swag? If you said yes to any of these, you may want to look forward to ÜMLOUD!

Ümloud is a one-night charity event in San Francisco. Since 2009, Ümloud has been rocking the faces off audiences every December with live-Rock-Band performances on-stage. Yes, people who donated enough money get the chance to perform a song from the game Rock Band in front of a liquored-up crowd. While it's all fun, the best part of all is that all the money raised that night from tickets, band donations, and silent auctions all go towards Child's Play Charity, which helps give video games, toys, books, and more to children in hospitals.

I've gone to the past 3 events, and they are a complete blast. And knowing that there are bronies that are into video games, I'd figure that some of you may be interested!

Alternatively, we could even make a band. Now that The Living Tombstone's song is now on Rock Band Network, we could easily represent the Brony community at the event. Just raise enough money to make it happen, get some costumes maybe, keep practicing to make a good show, and take the stage!

If not: The event is still fun on its own. Every attendee gets some free swag from the swag table (last year EVERYONE left with Rock Band 3 & keyboard for Wii + a keyboard stand!). There's also raffles throughout the night and there's even a free-play Rock Band station backstage for anyone to play ANY of Rock Band's song library. And of course: The acts during the night are great. It's like karaoke night turned up to 11. Some even have full outfits and choreography.

A reminder that this is a 18+ event, complete with bar (for 21+, of course), so all you foals unfortunately have to stay home (but you can watch a live-stream of the event from there!)

Tickets are usually about $10, but remember: That's going directly to Child's Play!

so, Anyone up for the band part?

    Oh man what a night! What a PARTY! This was my first time attending an UMLOUD! event and I was incredibly impressed with the party atmosphere there. We got to perform "Still Alive" and some other songs for a small crowd upstairs. Singing is always fun! And the musicians were off the charts in terms of epicness! Especially the Star Wars and Shaun of the Dead performances. (Rock on Sonya!) Tons of energy everywhere too, and I got to meet new bronies along with random people who were also incredible and fun! Then we spent about an hour just moshing and dancing in the middle of it all! Ohad and Blacklace were in the thick of it so mad props to them for risking their lives along with me xD! Oh one more thing: Tim Schafer = totally a brony now. Check and mate. Wah-hah-ha!

    Have fun everypony. I sorry to make a last minute change and not go but I have been really depressed lately and I really don't feel like going out tonight.

    December 6, 2012

    • Ohad K.

      Nopony's gonna force you to come, but I really think you should. It should be a fun, nice outlet and get to hang out with friends. It's turning out to be a large fun meetup too!

      December 6, 2012

    • Medic

      It sound really fun and I would love to hang out with everypony but I really feel that it's best for me to stay home at least for tonight. Also I don't want anypony worry about me, I'll be fine. ~Take care and warm wishes.

  • Sonya Lynn H.

    I'm really looking forward to meeting everypony! I'll be dressed in a Shaun of the Dead cosplay until after my band's (The Zed Word's) performance, and then in a black t-shirt with the "Pigs in Space" logo for the other band I'll be performing in (My Electric Mayhem). Mind, my Shaun cosplay doesn't include looking like Simon Pegg…just the outfit. I'd look very silly trying to be a balding ginger with a goatee and my, erm, zaftig figure. :-P

    Just a reminder: Go get your tickets NOW! It will cost you $10 online (plus $2 service fee), otherwise it'll be $15 (cash only) at the door. If you order online, you'll need the full name on the credit card you used & the 6-digit confirmation code to get your tickets from will-call when you get to DNA Lounge.
    And remember: If you either pay the $10 or $15, all that money will be going straight to Child's Play Charity!

    This sounds amazing! I can't believe it's getting closer!

    Who needs a ride from the Emeryville area? I know you can take BART, but I'm more than ok with giving rides since I'm taking my car anyways. I don't want to depend on BART

      I doubt they will let you in with a high school ID. If you have any other state ID, that should work.

  • Ledy

  • Kane D.

    I'd like to go, I can get up there on time most likely but buses don't run that late. If any of the bronies attending will be passing by Petaluma on their way home and would be willing to give me a lift, please send me an email.

    While I make no promises to match Andrew's awesome stuff, my band (The Zed Word) has some Shaun-tastic fun planned for this year! ^.^

    I'll be in http://umloud.org/bands/when_you_wish_upon_a_death_star

    It's organized and led by the same guy who did: http://umloud.org/bands/plants_vs_zombies_vs_coulton and http://umloud.org/bands/26 if anyone remembers from the past few years.

    Any other folks have bands set up?

      ohmigosh: Those two performances have been a highlight for me the past few Umlouds. Cannot wait to see what you guys have in store this year!

      November 20, 2012

  • Nymo

    Just found out that I'll be busy until 8, meaning that I'll likely get there by 9-10. Aurgh. One the one day of the week I have to work at the studio, it's on this day. At least I'll still make it not completely miss out.
    Will try to see if I can try to leave earlier or something...

    November 7, 2012

    • Nymo

      Also: Based off my schedule, looks like I'm free to stay as long as I want (Umloud generally goes until midnight). Will need a ride home or something...

  • Andrew V.

    I've gone two out of the past three years, and it seems likely I'll be planning to go again this year. My friend usually does an ultimate band package so I might be in on that again. I'd be interested in being part of a pony-related band, as well.

    July 15, 2012

  • Sonya Lynn H.

    If all goes well, I'll be performing like I did last year. It'll be great to meet some other local bronies & pegasisters. I'm bummed that most of the weekend meetups happen when I'm having ultra pony roller derby practice. (Seriously! ;-) )
