A Band of Gamers
Stay current with gaming and discover new music. Three best mates meet at the virtual pub to share their lifelong passion of video games and music discovery. Two hobbies in separate segments by aging gamers who love talking about the latest trends, playing new games alongside their retro favorites and recommending records.

The future of gaming including potentially the beginning of the end of physical media, playing games on a smart phone with a controller, first impressions of Devil May Cry 5 and Tetris 99, and a recommended record for fans of the Big Four of Thrash.
