Video Games Live airing on PBS - find out when it's on in your area

If you live in the US, you should be watching PBS pretty much all the time for great shows like NOVA and the stupidly time-wasting Antiques Roadshow. But chances are that you, like us, spend more time on Cartoon Network. Well pay attention, bubs! If you've never seen Video Games Live, you will want to, and soon you can (in some areas).

Tommy Tallarico's video game music bash features full orchestras and choirs, electronic percussionists, video accompaniment, and more... but most importantly: lots of lasers. The more the better, we say. The show celebrates game culture with more pizzazz than a rich girl's 16th birthday party, and starting August 1st, it'll be aired on PBS stations around the country. See a partial schedule here. For a exact times and locations, find your local listings on the PBS website.

If your local PBS station isn't broadcasting the show, well, tits. VGL asks that you contact them to urge that they get on board.

    Well tits! It's not even airing in my state!

    Double tits for me! I have access to 2 PBS stations - one for GA, the other in SC - and neither will carry it. Since it's my home station, you know what the GA station is carrying instead on Sunday? "Lower Your Taxes! Now & Forever With Ed Slott" and a Clay Aiken music special.

    Thanks for the heads up Tyler. I've actually went to this 2 years ago when they came to Vegas. I took my girlfriend (now wife) and she loved it despite the fact that she didn't what game the songs came from.

    Damn I don't have cable tv. will it be on Hulu?
  • Hobojedi - July 30, 2010 7:17 p.m.

    Thank the gods of PBS, I have two channels to watch this on.

    Video Games Live is a fantastic show! The music and presentation kicks the everloving crap out of boring 'classical' music recitals; I highly recommend you give it a watch. Still, you'd think that G4 would be all over this because, you know, they're a VIDEO GAMES CHANNEL and all.

    Not even in the ssame continent to see it

    I guess Alaska doesn't exist. I'm but a figment of PBSs' imagination.

    YESH! I get to watch it again! ( I live in MN, and I also went to the concert itself). No tits for me!
  • Logan2911 - July 30, 2010 10:56 p.m.
