Bit Brigade

Band

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

Tokyo Attack

Japanese Arcade Cabinets

Tokyo Attack is a collaboration of music game enthusiasts looking to give back to the community and share rare music games with people who will normally never get a chance to play them. We all started off as private collectors, building a collection of the games that were closest to us. As time went on, we saw a demand for our games at a variety of conventions, and noticed the machines being currently supplied were not always in the best of condition. Wanting to give back to the community in hopes to strengthen it, we decided to brand ourselves and help spread our investment into this genre to rest of the public.
