Sort of off-topicish, but it appears the VGL in Japan is getting a backlash for its relatively poor management, lazy performance, too Western heavy setlists and blah, but one entry of Yuji Takenouchi (aka TECHNOuchi)'s blog reveals several prominent game companies forced VGL not to use game footage, not to advertise the concert with the names of particular companies, and even specified the track to perform, neither of which he claims wouldn't otherwise be the case with concerts outside of Japan. As a result, VGL didn't progress as intended, and the ticket didn't sell well. I don't think this explains all of the criticism it gets, though.

Late Update: Seems there was a doujin concert called "Chokkana" held at Studio Coast right after the C76 event. (same venue that those EXTRA shows where at.)

Would have been cool to see Takrockers!! and Sound Holic.  I think I've heard some stuff by OZ, but not sure...  Anyways, here's the belated info.

Tickets for the Live 5pb. 2009 are sold out, so apparently vocal singers really ARE a bigger draw than VGM. 

the EXTRA series will probably get canned and replaced with more vocal shows then, if that's what sells more tickets.... >_<

Oh, and AYA twittered that her and the Supersweep boss SHINJI will be Special Guest DJing at an "Area 88" party on Halloween night (Oct.31)

That is unfortunate.  Maybe GeOnDan will cook something up for us.

While that's unfortunate this is common with music everywhere. Vocals driven music is more popular than instrumental music in all genres and areas, not just within the game media.

Now that the EXTEND concert just happened last night, I'm trying to cobble together a setlist from people's twitter posts. Especially "azu_massive" who gave very detailed info.

A lot of people were pointing to a Nico Live URL, which prompted you to buy a ticket, so maybe there was an option to purchase a streaming video feed? Not sure...

Zuntata had a 4 track promo disc available for their new "Evolutional Theory" sequel to Space Invaders Infinity Gene. Full album will be coming out on 3/30.

First up was Sega's [H.] and people said they were pretty powerful on stage, they played:

Cyber Troopers Virtual-On: Conquista Ciela
Burning Rangers: Burning Hearts ~Angel~
Yakuza 4: For Faith ~ Yakuza 4 Medley
After Burner: After Burner

Next up was Milestone's k.h.d.n. who performed:

Chaos Field: 25mg (dub)
Medley of: Chaos Field ~ ZANACxZANAC ~ Karous ~ Radirgy
Illmagic Envelope: Mr.RADIO SHOCK (extend edit)
Karous: Sex pervert of silence(dat bxxxh)

3rd performer was Go Sato, who played:

Raiden DX (PSX ver): Conflict
Raiden III: Lightning strikes (level 1)
Raiden IV: Flap toward the hope (level 3)
Raiden IV: Brightness of peace (ending)

4th performer was quad, with a big megamix apparently.
some of which contains Otomedius (konami) and Ridge Racer (Namco)

Next up was a Talking Break with
Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, Yuzo Koshiro, Shohei Tsuchiya (Zuntata), and Go Sato.

5th performer was Shinji Hosoe playing:

Operation Ragnarok Remix Medley (previews of the upcoming CD)
