The mighty Random (aka Mega Ran) returns to Ground Kontrol! We’re helping everyone get ready for Penny Arcade Expo Prime with the official Portland Pre-PAX Party, featuring Random and an amazing group of guests LIVE in our lounge.
One of LA Weekly’s “Five Rappers Who Will Be Big in 2014”, Random’s well-known to both video game fans and fans of independent rap. The first musician officially licensed by Capcom, Random’s “Mega Ran” album unexpectedly became a new moniker for the rapper when it tore through the Internet with its clever rhymes and solid beats inspired by one of the greatest video game franchises of all time, Mega Man. Random hasn’t slowed down, touring consistently, recording tons of songs, playing festivals, and still finding time to smash an arcade here and there!
Random will be joined by Bag of Tricks Cat, Tonight We Launch and a special guest set by Mark Dago. Surrounded by classic arcade games and fueled by a full bar, this is sure to be an all-too-appropriate kickoff to one of the biggest gaming events in the Pacific Northwest: PAX Prime!
WHAT: LIVE – Random aka Mega Ran, Bag of Tricks Cat, Tonight We Launch & Mark Dago
