"Bit Brigade performs rock covers of full NES soundtracks while their gamer speedruns them live on stage. On this evening, they will be performing "Mega Man II" and "Castlevania"."
"When was the last time you attended a live music performance with a genuine element of risk involved? And no, going to a Gwar show with a white t-shirt on doesn't count. When Bit Brigade takes the stage your mind will frantically oscillate between "Oh! Agh!! Please don't die!!" and "YES! He's doing it!!" Combining the dread and daring of a live video game speed run with the spot-on technique of a live band covering the musical accompaniment to everything you're seeing on-screen in real time, Bit Brigade will have you swinging between the two mediums. From thrashing about to live renditions of your favorite stage themes, fingers yearning to the sky in a rock 'n roll parody of sea anemones seeming to silently plead, "Please, feed us more fretboard pyrotechnics!," to being locked in stock-still rapture as the infallible maestro of the d-pad, Noah McCarthy, takes on the final boss and risks his video game life under the threat of intense peer scorn (or the reward of night-long glory and a credits score). No matter the outcome, Bit Brigade must play on until the deed is done - which it always is - on the first (and last) try. Once Noah's NES buzzes on, there's no turning back." - Metalhead Mike of The Shizz, summer 2011
The Daytona Machines
Press Start for fast cars, stage flamingos, and loud rock'n'roll.
The Daytona Machines are an American alternative rock band formed in 2016 in Nashville, TN. The trio has been described as a "surfy Nirvana" and they owe their sound to a variety of genres, including 60's surf and garage rock, as well as the New York punk movement of the 70's. With songs that are more like short bursts of three-chord rock anthems, they deliver an energetic set that will leave you covered in sweat and begging for just one more song.
The Mad Gear
You are about to enter a world unlike any you've ever seen before (well, okay, unless you saw them that one other time, but go with us on this one): a world where attitude is king, the only law is a finely tuned instrument, a pair of killer shades and a decked-out jean jacket, where the beautiful, the brutal, and the brave all meet. This is The Mad Gear.
