Jet City Retro In Seattle Today (04/26/2008)

Saturday and Sunday is the Jet City Retro classic videogame show in Seattle's University District in the Deca Hotel. We showed up there early this morning and although things were still a bit slow there were some awesome deals! I bought quite a few games and played a few rounds of Vectrex, Frogger and watch some folks jam on Rockband in the free game rooms.

Before the opening of the show, tons of goodies are waiting to be unpacked! On the right: Nate (the organizer) being interviewed by KIRO 710 News Radio.

The Rockband room has a full setup with drums, mic and 2 guitars and if you ever wanted to try this game with a "full band" this is your chance! The second free game room has some arcade machines, a MAME cabinet, some classic consoles (Vectrex etc.) and lots of cartridges on loan!
