    Rock Band Tuesdays is back after a week off for the holidays with 10 new songs, including the first Christmas and Hanukkah songs in Rock Band, 3 hits from the Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol's new single and 3 Classic Rock gems! YEAH! Also, check out our new microphone mod, where 3 mics go through the mixer then into the Xbox 360! You can now rap "So Watcha Want" with 3 MCs on the mics!

    Come play the new holiday songs while we're still in the holiday season! Over 530 songs and counting, Rock Band Tuesdays, every week at Ground Kontrol!

    Rock Band Tuesdays at Ground Kontrol presents:

    Rock Band at Someday Lounge!
    Sunday, February 8th 2009
    125 NW 5th Ave.
    Portland, OR 97209
    8:00pm-1:00am

    Free!

    Someday Lounge (just around the corner from Ground Kontrol) hosted the Rock Band 2 release party last September and it was very successful, so we're doing it again! If the Feb. 8th event is popular and successful we may start having Rock Band at Someday Lounge once a month on a Sunday night!

    Someday Lounge features a larger, higher raised stage, a cool, stylish, modern, dimly lit atmosphere, mixed drinks and a fine selection of beer at the bar, and more seating for the audience. And its on a Sunday night so if Tuesday night doesn't work for you to come down, this is a good opportunity to check the best Rock Band night in Portland out! Someday Lounge also serves mixed drinks, which GK does not, so some people may appreciate that!

    In addition to this special event, Ground Kontrol still hosts Rock Band Tuesdays every week. Hope to see you there!

    To celebrate Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade's tenth year in business, MC Destructo's Rock Band Experience will hold an all-night, all-out Rock Band Battle with promotional merchandise from MTV Networks, Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade, and Cinemark East 16 offered as prizes.

    Groups of four players can enter the competition by registering at Ground Kontrol on August 25th between 8PM and 9PM and performing a 2-song set of their choosing. Members of the "house band" Mario Speedwagon will judge the bands on score, stage presence, and style. The best four bands advance to the final round, where they face off in single-elimination competition. Who will be crowned the best Rock Band band of them all?

    Contest Rules:

    * Each band must have four members.

    * Each band's lineup must remain the same throughout the competition.

    * Game score = Instrument difficulty * Player difficulty * % notes hit.

    Player Difficulty Multipliers
    Easy: .5x
    Medium: 1x
    Hard: 1.5x
    Expert: 2x

    Total band score = one-third game score, one-third "Stage Moves," and one-third "Style," as judged by the members of 'house band' Mario Speedwagon.

    * All songs must be six minutes or less in length. To check the length of your chosen songs, visit http://www.rockbandcontent.com

    * Bands may repeat songs in later rounds, but this will likely reduce their performance and style scoring.

    Rock Band Tuesdays is moving around the corner to Backspace Internet Cafe for March for a month of All Ages shows (and beer with ID)!

    Ground Kontrol will to be undergoing renovations during the month of March and they need to use the stage area to store equipment. Thankfully, with RB Tuesday's history of working with the internet/gaming cafe, Backspace has offered the use of their stage on Tuesday nights for March! This means that for the first time ever Rock Band Tuesdays will be open to All Ages! Backspace also serves a wide variety of microbrews for those 21+ so no need to worry about not being able to drink too!
