Comic Con-goers aren’t shy about dressing up in homage to their favorite characters. But each year something is missing from the festivities: an ode to the scores from those iconic shows/movies/video games. In this unique event, the Colorado Symphony will perform more than 20 tunes from classic productions such as Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Batman, and Nintendo. DeVotchKa's Nick Urata will chime in with the theremin—an odd, handless electronic instrument. Bonus: Denver’s own Austin Wintory will present excerpts from his Grammy-nominated score for the video game "Journey." Sat 7:30 p.m.
