Tonight at Carnegie Hall, legendary old school rapper/turntableist and former Sugarhill gang-member Grandmaster Flash speaks on a panel for GAME ON!, where he'll be addressing the future of music and video gaming (Mr. Flash will be a character in the Activision video game DJ Hero, launching next week).
Other panelists include Melissa Auf der Maur, former member of The Smashing Pumpkins and Hole; Alex Rigopulos, co-founder and CEO of Harmonix who created Guitar Hero and Rock Band; Christopher Tin, video game composer; and Meghan Asha, talking head technology specialist. So where's the token panelist who only listens to anime soundtracks?
Moderating is Pete Wentz, the Royal Prince of Guyliner and lead singer of Fall Out Boy -- the same guy who named his first child "Bronx Mowgli". The panel will conclude with an afterparty at the Nintendo World Store at Rockefeller Center. Power up!
