Super Art Fight Makes New York City Debut Vs. COLLEGEHUMOR, November 1st!

2014-Brooklyn-08-med-for-web

Greatest Live Art Competition takes on Illustrators from Best Humor Website For One Night Only in Brooklyn

BALTIMORE, MD (October 1, 2014)—Super Art Fight, the greatest live art competition in the known universe, will make its New York debut on Saturday, November 1 at Palisades in Brooklyn, NY, as its stars collide in a series of “art fight” bouts against the artistic roster from leading comedy website CollegeHumor.com.

Since its inception in 2008, Super Art Fight (SAF) has traveled the United States presenting an incredible live show that pits artists against each other in timed drawing competitions. Complete with professional wrestling-style characters and improvised live commentary, audiences are routinely blown away by Super Art Fight events held across the country.

Each round, or “art bout,” is performed before a six-foot high by twelve-foot wide canvas. At the start of each bout, participating artists are given a topic that must be drawn and incorporated into canvas in some way. Periodically throughout each round, artists are given additional challenges from the “Wheel of Death”—a crowd-sourced list of new topics—that must be integrated into the existing drawings. Artists are even permitted to add to or change their opponent’s work. At the end of each twenty-five minute art bout, a decibel reader measures the hoots, hollers, cheers and applause from the crowd to determine a winner.

The event on Saturday, November 1 at Palisades in Brooklyn will mark the debut of Super Art Fight in New York, and to make a statement, the SAF Superstars will go after one of the greatest forces in humor today: the artistic roster from CollegeHumor.com. The unique art competition is sure to be among the most hilarious and unpredictable live events New York has seen. Will the SAF Superstars be able to take down the Internet legends, or will CollegeHumor get to laugh another day? There’s only one way to find out—see the show for yourself!

Join the action, see the excitement and be a part of history as markers clash in Brooklyn on November 1. Tickets are on sale now for $15 at http://www.superartfight.com/.

What: Super Art Fight vs. CollegeHumor

Where: Palisades (906 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11206)

Date: Saturday, November 1

Time: Doors at 8:00pm; Show at 8:30pm

Tickets: https://nvite.com/superartfight/b7b

Scheduled to appear so far from Super Art Fight are…

  • Baron Von Sexyful
  • El Russo Rojo
  • Officer C.P. Bristol

Plus, our SAF Hosts, Marty Day and Ross Nover, and our own referee, the recently engaged Brandon Chalmers! All sorts of craziness and surprises abound….

…but if you haven’t gotten your fill of us then, come on Sunday, where our own Marty Day and Ross Nover will be hosting the Group Costume Contest in the Walbash Ballroom at 2:45!

If that wasn’t enough – ALL WEEKEND LONG, our artists will be vending at Booths 325/327.

What are you waiting for? BE THERE FOR HISTORY! Nab your tickets now (or at the door), and we’ll see you this weekend, Indy!

Your Card For MAGFest 8.5 THIS WEEKEND!

10421443_10152533038277937_696320715550049590_n

One of the most unique shows we’ve ever been a part of – MAGFest 8.5, a return to the early days of MAGFest is this weekend, and we’re proud to announce that we will be doing the Super Art Fight thing as only we can, This Saturday, September 13 at 4pm in Panel 1.

We introduced our list of competitors to you last month, and now it’s time to announce the card you’ll see this weekend….

Red Erin vs. The Markermancer

A return bout of the 2011 Super Art Fight IDOL Finals, this bout sees Markermancer trying to make her way back into the SAF Rankings while taking on someone who has become quite a fan favorite in Red Erin. Look for this to be the most hotly contested battles of the afternoon!

Mecha IMPACT vs. The Commando

Team IMPACT’s plan to seek and destroy the SAF rookies continues here, as the boom man himself, The Commando takes on Super Art Fight’s resident robot, Mecha IMPACT. Sparks will fly and The Commando will make you go deaf for sure (or go hoarse trying) in this first ever one on one bout!

El Russo Rojo vs. Doctor Destructo Dome

Just one week before he gets a Super Art Fight Title Shot, the nefarious DDD will take on our resident romantic, the mysterious multi-ethnic luchadore known as El Russo Rojo. Can the crowd favorite defeat the mad scientist? This is a bout that will have HUGE ramifications on the future SAF title rankings!

All bouts will be hosted and commentated on by our own Marty Day, and for the first time, our own referee, Brandon Chalmers will be joining the broadcast team, as Ross Nover will be small pressing or something…

But that’s not all!

In a unique twist, we’re proud to also announce that Super Art Fight will be (indirectly) involved in this weekend’s Pokemon tournament! In one of the weirdest announcements we’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing with you, The Commando will be one of MAGFest’s resident gym masters this weekend, so take him on with your tiny monsters!

Join us this weekend – it’s going to be like 2010 all over again!

SAF Ottobar Update: Welcome RADAR As Our Evening’s Musical Entertainment!

RADAR

Over our past few club shows, we at Super Art Fight have felt a change in the air.

While we’ve been honored to present such acts as Peelander-Z, MC Frontalot and Adam WarRock alongside our trademark shows, we’ve started to recognize our place in the world. Going six years on as a live show means you can also incubate and show off talent looking to make a splash. We’ve seen it with Noisy Zen. Most recently, we saw it with Big Country Express.

On September 20th at The Ottobar, as a part of Super Art Fight’s End of Summer Bash, we’re proud to present a band featuring one of our own – Radar!

Maybe you’ve seen our roving photographer Erin Surrock at many of our live events? She’s an awesome musician in her own right, and has recently become a part of this indie-rock powerhouse. You can check ‘em out on Facebook right now, but we highly recommend you come out and see them with us LIVE and IN-PERSON!

Tickets for our next Ottobar extravaganza are moving fast, so don’t delay – pick ‘em up on MissionTix.com today!
