LOOK OUT, POWERGLOVE: BIT BRIGADE PLAYS ENTIRE MEGA MAN II SOUNDTRACK DURING A LIVE GAME

150

Like Powerglove, Bit Brigade is a band that takes video game music and makes it rockin’. Of course, Bit Brigade don’t wear fun costumes, and they’re less metal than Powerglove — but their latest achievement (see what I did there?) is so impressive, you gotta give them props.

During last week’s video/arcade/PC /tabletop gaming event, Mag Fest, a dude named Noah McCarthy played an entire Mega Man II speed run… while sitting on-stage with Bit Brigade, who played the game’s entire score live, presumably in real-time. Holy shit, that is nuts. It’s also probably a colossal waste of time. But as nerd, I can’t help but be impressed.

Check out video of the blessed event below; it’s 44 minutes long, and I don’t blame you if you can’t make it through the whole thing, but it’s worth at least watching some of it…
