They're having a concert in San Diego on the 24th of July, during Day 1 of SDCC. :) I don't usually go unless it's ALL Final Fantasy music, like they did for the "Dear Friends" concert which I saw during SDCC 2005. I don't play too many of the other games, so I'm not familiar with too many of the other themes.
