  1. Btws, friendly reminder: Magfest crew is doing Jamspace out at PAX East again with a bunch of videogame music acts coming out too, stay tuned for those details. But yea, everyone come jam.
  2. Reposting in correct thread If you're thinking about going to Boston for PAX East, know this: A good chunk of the Magfest crew will be representin', and in fact... We will be running JAMSPACE at PAX. That's right, we are doing a full on, legit Jamspace in our own room at the convention center. It's going to be awesome.

    PAX East

    PAX and Magfest are apples and oranges, PAX is really an Expo - Done Right. I went to PAX West this last year and it was nothing short of a stunningly well run, awesome event. If you're thinking about going to Boston for PAX East, know this: A good chunk of the Magfest crew will be representin', and in fact... We will be running JAMSPACE at PAX. That's right, we are doing a full on, legit Jamspace in our own room at the convention center. It's going to be awesome.

  4. Real quick: I was on this email thread, and to cut down on confusion / mis-communication / drama, it's worth noting that no acts have been confirmed for Magfest9 yet and won't be for a long while. Unless an act has received an email from me directly about playing Magfest, then it hasn't been confirmed. I'm always open for suggestions / feedback - dom at magfest dot org - but official communicaton about confirming music acts at Magfest comes from me via email, so there is no confusion about it.
  5. I hope you suckas are ready, cause I have lined up: TWELVE VIDEOGAME MUSIC BANDS (3 nights of concerts) SWEET DANCE PARTY THING w/ 4-5 DJs (now in main concert hall) CHIPTUNES CONCERT w/4-5artists (now in main concert hall) MORE CAPS THAN EVER BEFORE And Jamspace is returning to pure, unscheduled jamming the entire time. You don't even KNOW. How can you?!? How?? Oh man, it's gonna be so good. -Dom
  6. FYI, I'm personally organizing the videogame music concerts (think like 'magfest presents bands XYZ at GameX') and we have some ridiculous game music bands lined up and ready to go. It's going to be awesome. We'll be announcing who they are (besides The One-ups) pretty soon.
  7. Magfest crew of 10 departing from NickTheNewbie's house with tons of equipment. GO!
  8. Oh.My.God. 12 minute long FF6 opera + 3 singers + choir may have been the highlight of my entire life. Holy crap. The new arrangement was SO GOOD. There's an earlier arrangement that's a little slower paced, and I thought the one last night was a world improvement. Plus combined with the hall's incredible acoustics, it was literally a euphoric experience to hear that song. I still can't get over it. The crowd went absolutely berserk after that song, what an unbelievable performance. Awesome hanging out with all you guys, cya at VGL in 2 weeks in DC and Pittsburgh. PEACE -Dom
  9. Yo guys: Me (Dom) and a bunch of the Magfest crew (5-8 people) are getting a Magfest and OCR table for the lobby of the VGL shows that are happening on July 10th, 11th, and 12th. We're planning on hitting up all 3, including the 11th and 12th shows in Pittsburgh. We'll be staying at a hotel in Pittsburgh on Sat 11th (e.g. we need to have a PARTY) If you guys going to be there on the 11th and/or 12th, we should definitely all get together and hang out before/after the show, plus pimp ocr and magfest at the booth. I should (venue permitting) have the keyboard(s) again in the lobby for some jamming and whatever. (think mini-jamspace) It's gonna be AWESOME and definitely try to make it if anyone's on the fence. I may also have some random backstage passes to swap around for us. -Dom
  10. Dom here, FYI lots of random Magfest crew going. We have a table for both OCR and Magfest, and check THIS OUT, on an email to the main BSO list they pimped both of us out: http://baltimorebarcams.com/magfest/mag8/promo/distant worlds/distantworlds.htm Due to having an Otakon planning meeting all day before I can't make any meetups beforehand (this is my OCR+Baltimore curse) but after possibly? I'll just figure it out there. Also reminder about two other big things coming up: We're hitting up 3 videogames live shows in DC then 2 days in Pittsburgh (July 10,11,12), THEN we're running Jamspace at Otakon again, plus having 4 bands out there play - This Place is Haunted, Armadillo Tank, Rare Candy, and Random (Megaran9 guy). So much crap so little time. Anyway, see you guys there. -Dom
  11. KROZE BAN! VIDEO AWESOME! Is that me? Am I in it? wtf. Magfest army for the win. Join today.
  12. YOU. GUYS. ARE. ALL. AWESOME. Holy shit magfest was unbelievable this year. I want to hang out with you all again. You guys better come to Otakon's Jamspace and rock out too. FYI got a few things: Wiki page with a list of all the coverage that I know of so far (but not vids or pics yet) http://baltimorebarcams.com/dom/index.php?title=Magfest7Coverage New magfest staff blog: http://community.livejournal.com/magfest_staff/ Btw, check out the blog post for what I have in mind for next year's MASSIVE chiptunes rave in the main concert hall. CHECK IT. I want to do it hardcore and awesome, and I'm going to need a lot of help. Magfest 8 is going to be the year. We all have some big, big plans. PEACE -Dom Magfest Music Coordinator
  13. We don't have the 100% final equipment list, we did have lots of people volunteering gear so far, but I don't have a master list. I can tell you that this year the PA and such will be quite pimped out and we should have at least the same backline stuff as last year (though perhaps different models). Everything so far should be at least as good as last year, if not better. -Dom
  14. I would not hesistate for a second to jeopardize thousands of people for the sake of our rock concert. Don't worry.
  15. Things this year: - 24/7 jamspace - composers playing stuff - Thursday night concerts, in addition to Friday and Saturday - Late night chiptunes concert - Wed new year's eve party and concert in Jamspace (go to this. seriously. go to this). You could say that I'll be there this year.
