A night of retro videogame fun coming this April

By Brittney MacDonald, Life & Style Editor


Is your April social calendar looking a little bare? Are you a big fan of retro videogames and parties? If you answered with a resounding “Yes!” to either or all of these questions, then you might be interested in Game Over: Press Play to Continue, a 19+ event to be held April 28 from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. at The Waldorf—1489 East Hastings—presented by Caravan of Creeps.

First and foremost, it will feature an all-female DJ line-up with sets by Kasey Riot, AppleCat, and Spokmusic. For those of you looking forward to something a little nerdier, videogame medley band The Runaway Four will also be playing.

If you’re wanting something a little more visual, then maybe you’d be more interested in the circus sideshow-themed cabaret performances; featuring performances by flame-master Burns the Dragon, burlesque darling Dezi Raider, and special guest from Calgary—contortionist Visha Loo—as well as many, many more!

Looking to show off your costume-making skills? There will be a costume contest judged by Vancouver cosplayers; Cosplay Bombshell, Vancouver Joker, Candyhappy’s Creative Confectionary, and Regen Deadpool.

Interested in watching something with a little more animal magnetism? Mockingbird Media Entertainment has prepared a walk-off featuring a star-studded cast of both seasoned and green performers. If you’ve ever been to a walk-off competition you know it’s morally questionable, sometimes enlightening, and always entertaining.

Tickets will be available for sale at the door for $30, but early birds will get a $5 discount by purchasing online through Brown Paper Tickets. Just search Game Over: Press Play to Continue. For information regarding the schedule, performers, guests, and vendors—yes, there will be shopping as well—head over to the Facebook event page.
