The train station you should get off is Etterbeek.
Trains run regularly from the main stations Brussel-Midi(South) Brussel-Centraal (Central) and Brussel-Noord (North). The train trip will take about 20 minutes.
There is a site owned by company that manages the Belgian railroads that we would link to if it weren't for the fact they run a crazy linking policy. The sitename consists of three w's, the word railtime and the extension be, all seperated with a single dot. On the site you can easily plan your train ride.
Here's to hoping the riddle-me-this version of linking doesn't get us in trouble ;-)
Our Nation Airport is located near Brussels at Zaventem and very close to the Surf House, check http://www.brusselsairport.be/en/
Note that when you book your airplane tickets you head for Brussels National Airport (Zaventem) and not for Brussels North, which is in Antwerp, or for Brussels South, which is in Chaleroi.
From the airport you can take a taxi, bus or train to the center of Brussels or straight to the venue in Ixelles.
Taxi: They are lined up just outside of the arrival hall of the airport but be careful they're quite costly (~20€ to go to center, up to 40€ if night) and not the best option if you arrive during peak hours.
Bus: The bus station is located on level 0 (1 level lower than the arrival hall), take bus number 471 on platform A. It goes straight to the center of Brussels.
Train: The train station is located on level -1 (2 levels lower than the arrival hall). Probably the best option if you want to go to the center.
