Pete Wentz, Grandmaster Flash, Melissa Auf der Maur and more at GAME ON! The Video Game and Music Revolution
Q: What do a certain pretty boy MTV rock darling, DJ legend and sick female bassist have in common (besides a love for music)?
A: They have all profited from being featured in video games.
At Carnegie Hall’s Notables’ 2009â€“2010 season launch party on 10/19, the multimedia panel discussion will feature rock stars, composers and game developers who will discuss the intersection — and future — of gaming and music.
FOB’s Pete Wentz will moderate a group of industry leaders that include Grandmaster Flash, Hole/The Smashing Pumpkin’s Melissa Auf der Maur and Alex Rigopulos, co-founder and CEO of Harmonix (the creators of Guitar Hero and Rock Band).

Hits like Rock band, Guitar Hero and DDR have introduced new and old favorites to track hungry gamers. Although video-game sales have been on the decline for six consecutive months, analysts are betting on a combo of trimming console prices and music driven titles to boost sales. Artists are definitely benefiting from gamer ties as well: Guitar Hero’s artists see their catalogue sales rise 50% on average.
GAME ON! tickets are pricey: $50 tickets available to Notables members at the Prelude level and $75 tickets available to the public.
Sadly, I can’t afford to check this out but I will be on the lookout for related tweets, live streams and recap blog posts.
