“CAPCOM LIVE!” is the official Capcom concert tour, which, unlike the other orchestral format video game concerts, features a high energy rock band, vocalists and orchestra performing the mega-incredible symphonic rock arrangements of the most memorable Capcom game music. One of the most exciting features of the “CAPCOM LIVE!” concert series is the broad array of classic Capcom titles represented in the concert lineup:
– Ace Attorney®
– Devil May Cry®
– Dragon’s Dogma®
– Mega Man®
– Mega Man® X
– Monster Hunter™
– Resident Evil®
– Street Fighter®
The show team, from producers to musicians to visuals, tirelessly worked together to create a concert that doesn’t only satisfy fans of the games; the live show experience will be exciting and enjoyable to any concert-goers. Capcom Live aims to, while satisfying the Capcom game fans, entertain non-gamers and music fans to let them know how great video game music is.
Brent Black, also known as “Brentalfloss”, is best known on the internet as the creator of the “With Lyrics” YouTube series, where he adds satirical lyrics to classic video game tunes. Since 2008, he has expanded his base of subscribers to over 395,000, released three major albums hitting the top ten on the iTunes comedy and Billboard comedy charts, and has performed all over North America and Europe. He composed the score for the indie game Default Dan, and is the co-creator of the digital party game “Use Your Words.”
Brent will be performing Friday night!

The Triforce Quartet is a traditional string quartet that plays video game music. The beginnings of the Triforce Quartet began innocently as a short Zelda medley for an encore of a recital in early 2007, but the video of using traditional string quartet instruments to play music of classic games gained viral popularity later that summer. Thanks to this, cellist Chad Schwartz was able to combine his love for video games, along with years of classical training, to arrange a variety of video game themes that even non-gamers can enjoy. The four members of the Triforce Quartet take audience members on an unforgettable musical journey.
Combining the dread and daring of a live video game speed run with the spot-on technique of a live band covering the musical accompaniment to everything you’re seeing on-screen in real time, Bit Brigade will have you swinging between the two mediums. From thrashing about to live renditions of your favorite stage themes, fingers yearning to the sky in a rock ‘n roll parody of sea anemones seeming to silently plead, “Please, feed us more fretboard pyrotechnics!,” to being locked in stock-still rapture as the infallible maestro of the d-pad, Noah McCarthy, takes on the final boss and risks his video game life under the threat of intense peer scorn (or the reward of night-long glory and a credits score). No matter the outcome, Bit Brigade must play on until the deed is done – which it always is – on the first (and last) try.
Bit Brigade performs rock covers of full NES soundtracks as their gamer speedruns them live on stage. They will be performing Saturday night!
