Theater at Madison Square Garden: Stop it already with your ironic enjoyment of the theme from Super Mario Brothers—that’s actually a pretty lazy choice as nostalgic video game music goes. At this show, nearly thirty years of tunes from the Legend of Zelda game series will get a full orchestral treatment, which should reveal more of the complexity. Until then, just keep scanning the virtual radio stations programmed into the cars of Grand Theft Auto V and hope one of the DJs decides to go rogue and offer up a preview?
