Tampa Bay Comic Con may be over, but that doesn’t mean the nerdy ass shenanigans have to end.
Athens, Georgia has given the world some great music (read: R.E.M., Casper & the Cookies, Neutral Milk Hotel), but none have epically shredded like Bit Brigade. The guys are ambitious about the way they play songs from video games and Mega Man II V2 — a re-worked, vinyl release of their Mega Band LP — is not a joke.
They tour with an on stage gamer, and their live set is is a prog-rock junkie’s wet dream. So gamers, heed the advice of Bit Brigade and put your controllers away for a night, because there aren’t any extra lives in the real world. Tampa instrumental trio Florida Night Heat emerge from a rolling hiatus for this one.
More information on the show is available at CL's events calendar. Listen to Mega Man II V2 below.
