Ümloud! is an annual fundraiser event for Child's Play Charity, a "gamers' charity" started by Penny Arcade's Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik that provides toys and games to Children's Hospitals around the country, including Oakland Children's Hospital.
The spiritual-successor to last year's successful Fünde Razor, and hosted by gaming industry vets Chris Kohler (Wired), Joe Markert (Gamehelper), and John "Seg" Seggerson (Telltale Games), Ümloud! will hit the DNA Lounge in San Francisco, California on December 9th, and feature a full-blown Rock Band 2 main stage set up courtesy of Harmonix Music Systems, where you and your band can melt the face of San Francisco clean off at one of the hottest music venues in the city, all in the name of charity!"
