*LOW TICKET WARNING*
When was the last time you attended a live music performance with a genuine element of risk involved? 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.
