A designated gamer flawlessly beats the Nintendo classic Mega Man II, his progress projected on-screen. At the same time, Megaband rips through the entire soundtrack with calculated aggression.
This is the latest alter-ego of the progressive post-hardcore band Cinemechanica. The side project parallels their ventures as Contraband, which - of course - interprets the music of Contra.
Megaband will destroy the Little Kings stage around 1am Wednesday, headlining day two of this year's Athens Popfest. Cinemechanica's signature dueling guitars will remain in tact; only now with melodies taken from an 8-bit Nintendo game.
I'd highly recommend seeing all this firsthand. But if you're unable to attend, consider the Megaband Live DVD.
