Vintage Sci-Fi Anime Party

With a DJ set by Kevin Sukho Lee

Of all the galaxies far, far away, sci-fi anime of the 70s and 80s inhabits one that’s particularly fuzzy, fantastical and forever embedded in the hearts of many. One of those hearts belongs to Xavier the Spaniard, ABD’s youngest programmer, a lifelong, obsessive devotee of the genre. Alas, our Spaniard must soon return to Spain – but not before leaving us with his love letter to Japanese animated space operas: The Vintage Sci-Fi Anime Party! Prepare yourself for epic space battles, giant robot show downs, sentai and mecha madness, and monstrous extraterrestrial foes – all brought to you by masters like Osamu Tezuka, Rintaro, and Katsuhiro Otomo. Not to mention Hayao Miyazaki’s first TV incursions, macho Philip K. Dickian masterpieces like Space Adventure Cobra, and King Beast GoLion, the action-packed anime that transformed into beloved cult-fave Voltron.

Come join our late night celebration of subtitle-bejeweled intergalactic adventures from the golden age when anime first reached western shores, and bid adios to Xavier before he takes off for his home planet!
