iw_diggnation.jpgAttention New Yorkers! Do you like the Internet? Do you like Diggnation? Then on June 4th, you’ve GOT to be at the live Diggnation show in New York City. It’s Internet Week in New York City (one of our fave cities) and we figured, how better to participate than to bring Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht to New York to finally tape an episode in front of a New York audience!?

But we didn’t stop there, as if Kevin and Alex wasn’t enough, Brian Brushwood, host of the smash hit Scam School will be there to shock and amaze, and make fools of a couple of people with his dazzling array of bar tricks. See if you can stand toe to toe with the king of the scam. Plus, DJ Bears and Bears Repeating will be performing as well for all you music fans.

This event will also be serving as the Digg Meet-up. Digg CEO Jay Adelson will be in attendance along with founder Kevin Rose and a few others from the Digg crew and community.

Here are the details:
When:
Wednesday, June 4 – 6:00 p.m. EST

Where:
Studio B
259 Banker Street
Between Meserole Ave. & Calyer St.
Brooklyn, New York
