It's another sleepless night here at MAGFest. Our panel went well today, and we were treated to some amazing acts on Friday night here in National Harbor, MD. Stage two featured the Descendants of Erdrick, one of my favorite bands, who played some underappreciated material from Ninja Gaiden and Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest.

The main stage got brentafloss's crazy antics, Bit Brigade's masterful musical accompaniment to speed runs of both Castlevania and Contra, a mighty ARMCANNON who rocked the night away, and a surprising performance by the Video Game Orchestra which appeared as a rock band. Their renditions of "Eyes on Me," "Melodies of Life," and "I am the Wind" (from Symphony of the Night) were the best I've heard thanks to an amazing vocalist.

DJ bLiNd closed out the night after 2 AM with a some stellar remixes, including one of my favorite tracks, the Ducktales moon stage, and A_Rival made a surprise appearance to work the crowd during his set.

It was an amazing night with awesome music, and there will be even more tomorrow. Check out some photos below courtesy of Chris Serani and Ashley Robison (Bit Brigade).
