Bands and artists in the world of videogame music will converge in Baltimore later this month. August 14th kicks off Bit Gen Gamer Fest. The whole game music band started off with five bands in 2005. Subsequent years have brought about more concerts, working all the way up to this year, which is supposed to be the biggest ever.

This event, which brings game music and art together with fans, is going to host 12 musical acts. The lineup is basically a hotlist of the best game music bands out there. I'm biased towards the first one in the list, of course. Here's the band lineup:

  • The OneUps
  • Entertainment System
  • The Megas
  • Powerglove
  • The Protomen
  • This Place is Haunted
  • Year 200x
  • The X Hunters
  • Ultraball
  • Rare Candy
  • Armadillo Tank

The whole thing will be MC'd by Brentalfloss and DJ Cutman will be spinning all night.

It all goes down at Sonar in Baltimore. Go here for tickets. Go out and support these awesome bands. Give my boys in The OneUps some love and buy some CDs while you're there!
