Don’t know what to do for the week? Well, check out what’s going on for this weekend.
GR8bit Live is an annual Video Game Music (VGM) concert which serves as a fundraiser to purchase board game and video game equipment for the local children’s hospital. All of the proceeds from the event went towards the hospital. For the first two years, the event was held at the Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids. Last year, a convention was centered around the concert and held at DeVos Hall. GR8bit Live IV returned back to being a concert for this year. This time around, it was a 2 day concert event with activities attached.
He has provided voices for numerous anime and video game characters such as Teenage Gohan from Dragon Ball Z and Ryu from Street Fighter. We talk about anime and video games, of course. Plus, we talk about the upcoming book that he and his fiancé Ryter Rong are writing. Also, we talk about a very special and much needed panel that they are creating for conventions. You can’t go wrong when you are talking about Christopher Walken either.
