Our first international guest is on Nerd Music Meltdown! Hailing from Vancouver, British Colombia, we have Josh Pendlebury, who plays guitar for The Runaway Four and runs Bonus Stage Van and the Virtual VGM Fest! (Also available on Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play)
The Runaway Four’s take on video game melodies is progressive synth-rock based on themes instead of a specific game or series. We talk about how that came to be, the Vancouver nerd scene, other Canadian VGM acts, and putting on virtual concerts with Bonus Stage. The next Virtual VGM Fest will take place on Saturday, June 13th on Twitch.
