West Coast Wig Out

West Coast Wig Out, presented by GameMusic4All.com, is an all-day music festival showcasing California's amazing lineup of Nerdcore Hip Hop music. The brainchild of Anthony "Genoboost" Ruybalid, West Coast Wig Out intends to show that the East Coast isn't the only place to find nerd music festivals. In his words, "I want to organize a show like this to help get the nerdcore and vgm scenes more organized around Southern California. Also, to put on a big fun show for people to enjoy and for these acts to gain more recognition and fans." With such a fantastic lineup to boot, the show can't be less than absolutely fantastic.

Scheduled to perform: Zealous1, Super Barrio Brothers, Sudden Death, Nomad, MC Mega, MC Cheshire Grin, Maja, Legendary wizard, IllGill, GOSHone, Chubby Chasers, A_Rival, and more. Links to artists' music is available on the official WCWO webpage (a link is provided below).
Below are a couple questions I had for Anthony regarding the show:

Why should people attend this show?
"People should attend the show for a few reasons. One, people who love video games will meet many other like minded people, including the performers, who are all video game lovers. Two, people who aren't big fans of the sort of music being played on the radio may find more common ground in these underground hard working musicians who only care about getting their music out there. Three, It should just be a good old fashioned awesome show with lots of talent!"
What's in store for the future of GM4A's show promotion?
If this show is successful we hope to be doing many more shows in the future around California, mostly in my home base of Los Angeles though. Hopefully shows large and small, and encompassing more styles such as chiptunes, and VG rock.
Anything else you'd like to say about the show?
The only thing I have to add is that this will be the single biggest show for nerdcore in California to date. It will hopefully mark the beginning of many more amazing shows! Also bare with us as this is the first all day event we are organizing!

When and Where:
12PM-1AM November 15th, 2008
11334 Burbank Blvd
North Hollywood, CA 91601

The show only costs a measly $10, so if you're in the area, don't be shy, don't be cheap, and come support the Nerdcore hip hop scene. If you're interested in other events and music that GM4A is putting out, check out their website. There are VG music compilations, nerd music news, and much more.
