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 and 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.
