We recorded Australian electro-indie-rocksters Flamingo Crash live at Game On Night 5, and it looked so great that they asked if they could use the footage for a music video to go with the track “Sister Sister” from their new album “Triangle Island”. We replied: “Totally.”
This was followed by some truly epic and spectacular performances, most notably from a Headcrab-wearing crew “Llamar Fire Aftermath” who treated us to the epic-est of all tracks in Rock Band 1: Boston – Foreplay/Long Time and The Who – Won’t Get Fooled Again.
I’ve been spending the holidays with the family, in a house which has a proper electronic drum kit, so of course we tried plugging it in to the Guitar Hero: World Tour kit. After googling around for a couple of hours I couldn’t find a list of the note values for the MIDI input, so I went through and found them by trial and error.

The State Library’s second Game On night saw a little change of venue to the dim, theatre-esq library lobby, which gave a super cool mezzanine feel to the stage, and may have also caused the invasion from the Dark Side.
Fortunately the rebels were able to deliver the security Holodisk safely to Herovision HQ, so we have video to commemorate those who fell.
