So, my friend Kortnee is obsessed with Guitar Hero - the video game that lets you act like a pinwheelin' guitar god, Dance Dance Revolution-style.
Now, a new version of the game is on its way. Rock Band, as the name suggests, lets you take on everything from bass and drums to guitar and vocals. So awesome.
But hold on to that drum solo - Rock Band will be in stores in November. The good news is, however, that you can preview it today through Sunday.
MTV Games, Harmonix and EA are bringing the Rock Band Tour to Sacramento. Check it out today until 6 p.m. and Friday from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. at Sac State's (6000 J St.) Serna Plaza. Or on Saturday from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., visit the Rhythm and Ribs Fest in the Raley Field parking lot (400 Ballpark Drive, West Sacramento).
And, if you're brave enough to try the game on a "Rock Off" main stage, you can compete for the chance to win a trip to New York and hang out with a "real band." No word on who this quote-unquote real band is, but you'll also have an opportunity to show your stuff on MTV's "TRL" video show, so who really cares, right?
