Your profile picture would match perfectly with that post, if he does actually AA an entire pack, lol.

If you have a slot of time, maybe you can pick one song that represents a skill particular to rhythm gaming (Stamina, Speed, JS, Jacking, etc.)

Someone should make a difficult twitch/AGDQ-meme song/chart (better than the Kappa song linked earlier pls) just for this segment. Maybe even keep it secret from everyone (including Staiain) until the event, and have someone else bring it on a USB stick. This kind of secret GDQ-specific planning has been done before by the TAS guys and got a lot of positive feedback and hype, so I bet it'd be appreciated.

songs that change a lot will have inherently more audience appeal than songs that are roughly the same for the whole song

example -- MaxX Unlimited is way more entertaining to watch than MAX 300

I would say do ONLY vgm songs. The audience will relate to it the most. Like supersonic smash kombat or something

Also, play a heavily modded file like Printer Jam. Practice the shit out of it, it will generate the most shock value.

I used to play infront of people a lot, so I think I'll put down some things that seemed to get good reactions. Most of it has already been said already though.

1. Combo is extremely important. If you fail to hold combo (e.g. breaking every second) people think you're bad. People who don't play these games don't have a frame of reference, so not crushing a song makes it seem like you're getting rekt by the game, rather than pushing it farther than nearly every single other person who has tried to get good at it.
2. Talking about being bad when you screw up seems to get a good reaction from people who have some relation to rhythm games. "Lol this is bad? I can't even read it!"
3. I would personally recommend using at least 1 noisy song since it's like "Dude even the song sounds ridiculous!". Can also pull the "There aren't even normal sounding songs that have enough notes to keep up with my level of play" card. E.G. Nijuu/The Hypocrisy on rates.
4. I think rates can be used to relate your gameplay to speedrunning. Using your skill to allow you to complete songs in less time than they otherwise could be, it'd be like if speedrunners could make auto-scrollers go by faster by getting faster themselves. I was thinking of trying to get in stepmania in myself, and my idea was to make a pack of songs and play them all on rates while keeping track of the time saved or something. E.G. 40 minutes of songs completed in 25 minutes, while still getting AA.
5. If you can learn to read a mod chart that looks really cool, I think it'd be good as a finale/donation incentive if they'll allow you to have one. "So up till now, it has all been the same thing. Arrows go up the screen, and you hit the button when they line up with the ones up top. Not much to it, just getting better at doing the same thing over and over. But what if there was more to stepmania than initially thought...?" *Epic mods*

if you do want to do an xmod chart, i'd recommend either groundhog (xoon5) or glitchcraft (smg2)
