Yep, videogame music is as much a part of the fabric of our culture as the games are themselves. And Video Games Live aims to pay tribute to that. The nationwide concert series takes some of the most memorable music ever captured in binary code and brings it to life with a riveting orchestral stage show. Through live action segments and a Laser Floyd-esque light show, Video Games Live will transport you from the days of Pong all the way through the breakneck action of Metal Gear Solid. And best of all, theres no controller required.
The epic journey starts Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Tickets start at $29 and include a preshow costume contest and Guitar Hero competition (order online with the code VGLStudent and receive $10 off too). Visit browardcenter.org.
