Tomorrow night New York City’s opulent space, Capitale (130 Bowery) will play host to the launch of the video game Gig IT. The event will be hosted by Lala Vasquez & DJ Khaled with special performances by Nas, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Miguel, Allison Park, and Elle Varner.
Gig IT goes by the motto “Your Music. Your Stage. Your Gig.” The application is the first of it’s kind to be launched exclusively on Facebook in early May. If you aren’t familiar with the program let me give you a run down. Gig IT will be the first and only virtual 3D concert game for Facebook that will bring together Social Media, Music, Fashion, and Gaming into a single platform. The application dares players to create the most innovative and unique social gaming experience for the music world. In a similar fashion to the ever-popular SIM’s game, you construct your own 3D concert. Fans can pick everything from the performing artist, to their wardrobes, to the concert’s official sponsors and venue location. Gig IT provides each user with a fully customized experience they’ll never forget.
So get ready to party with the biggest hip-hop heavyweights in a ballroom with 65-foot ceiling supported by marble Corinthian columns, the venue is outrageously over the top, but perfect for a launch of this kind.
