“When was thelast time you attended a live music performance with a genuine element of riskinvolved? 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!!” Combiningthe dread and daring of a live video game speed run with the spot-on techniqueof a live band covering the musical accompaniment to everything you’re seeingon-screen in real time, Bit Brigade will have you swinging between the twomediums. 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 tosilently plead, “Please, feed us more fretboard pyrotechnics!,” tobeing 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 thethreat of intense peer scorn (or the reward of night-long glory and a creditsscore). 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
