The Video Games Live Review
We attended Video Games Live last Friday at the Kentucky Center of the Arts. Jack Wall conducted the Louisville Orchestra in a truly energetic, multimedia performance. Highlights included co-producer Tommy Tallarico introducing pieces, hosting the on-stage competitions, and introducing surprise guests, such as Martin Leung - the Video Game Pianist. Oh, and let's not forget how he rocked out on stage with his guitar, as he and Jack brought together the Orchestra, and the Louisville Choir in an incredible fusion of music, lights, and video. The crowd was enthusiastic and engaged. One of my favorite parts came when Tommy asked for people to open their cell phones (rather than flick their lighters on) and the crowd obliged. Some had smartphones and there was even one laptop in the crowd. I must admit, I had an internal squeek of geeker joy.
It was an incredible experience and we'll will certainly be attending next year!

Here's the link to the Numa Numa song on YouTube, though according to Jacqui, I'm the last person on the intarweb to see it...
There are several knock-offs, though I really like the Numa Numa Lego version.
