video games live

Connor and I went out on a "date" night the other night. We went out to dinner at Sweet waters on Church Street in Burlington, and then we went out to Video Games Live at the Flynn Center. This show was amazing! I never thought of the music from video games as actual music, but boy is it! We had a blast. They had a screen behind the orchestra on which they showed clips from the games. The graphics of video games these days are pretty damn amazing as well. (Don't fret, there was a piece done in the 'old style' with some music (if you can call it that) and some graphics from "pong")! This is a traveling show, so if you ever have the chance to check it out you should.

It goes without saying that I had a wonderful time with Connor, and was very happy tp spend the evening with just him.

Connor and I before heading out:

Oh yeah, we're totally cool.If you look closely at the people in costume, you can see my friend's son dressed up in Guitar Hero gear at the far right. (Up on stage and everything! He's a pretty cool 10 year old!)Connor on the way home from the show: (11:00PM)

This guy was also there:

Here's a sample video of Video Games Live. We took some video as well, but this is probably better.

Seriously, if you can ever go, DO! (If you can bring Connor, even better!)
