Most people don’t consider a vintage Nintendo Game Boy to be a musical instrument. Those people haven’t met Metroyd Myk.
Everyone’s favorite game music played like never before – from Zelda to Undertale.
Saturday, October 14
The definition of “a one man show,” Heatbox takes the stage to deliver an incredible beatboxing performance. Get ready for both popular gaming tunes and original songs from this superlative indie artist.
Speedrun rockers Bit Brigade return to XPO for an encore performance. Attendees will get to watch them speed through classic Nintendo games while playing the soundtrack live! On the menu this year: Castlevania, Batman, and … DuckTales!
