The Alameda Music Project Flier for Serenade at the Arcade
Remember when we told you about The String Arcade -- the string quartet that's releasing a CD entirely made up of orchestral covers of video game songs?
Well, the album is finished, and they're throwing an epic release party to celebrate.
Called "A Serenade at the Arcade," the party will take place at Rhythmix Cultural Works in Alameda from 7 p.m.-9:30 p.m. on March 7. It will feature several rooms with arcade and console games, as well as live performances from the quartet playing the music from the CD, from video games such as Tron, Minecraft, and Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Also performing will be Steve Kirk and Nils Frykdahl, whose voices you may have heard on the soundtrack of the game Scurvy Scallywags.
