Did you know that DiscoCactus can compress itself into small, bite-size servings? This is an especially useful skill when, say, one or more members of the band test positive for COVID-19 mere days before performing. ThrexUltimA (Doug Perry and Ben Wallace) are one such iteration of a downsized DiscoCactus. Join them for a duo performance of video game music, painted using a palette of piano and percussion!

In March of 2021, the very first vgmtogether took place: a three-day online event celebrating video game music. It was an event full of performances, panels, and community activities, all taking place on Twitch, Discord, and VRChat. What you might not know is that just over two months earlier, the event hadn’t even been dreamed up yet! So, how did it all come together? Join vgmtogether directors Doug and Nujj as they reflect on the steps leading up to the event and answer your questions, live from VRChat!
Narrative Game Club is a book club but for narrative games! Members vote on a game, play it, and then discuss our thoughts on the story, music, art, whatever! In our vgmtogether session, will be discussing GRIS. There’s no need to have played it to listen in on our discussion. Fair warning: There will be plenty of spoilers!
