From the people that
brought you Contraband
, a side project of
the rock group Cinemechanica, comes another video game/rock music hybrid: Megaband. The setup is very similar to
Contraband: Cinemechanica will provide the game's soundtrack, and players will pull out some Mega Man II
play for the crowd, their progress projected onto a backdrop behind the band. Even if you don't like rock music, you
can still enjoy a trip down memory lane.
Megaband's debut show will be this Wednesday, March 8th, at the
Caledonia Lounge in Athens, Georgia. Barring some freak accident, I will be attending the show, so if anyone else is
considering going leave a comment and we can all try to meet up before/after the concert.
