Howl at the moon over downtown Kitchener and play your favourite jams courtesy of Nerd Nite KW!
DUE TO COMPLICATIONS RELATED TO ONGOING RENOVATIONS INSIDE THE VIDYARD OFFICE BUILDING, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. SORRY FOR ANY DISAPPOINTMENT OR INCONVENIENCE.
Nerd Nite KW presents “live music” made by you – in the form of Rock Band™, the award-winning music/rhythm video game. Featuring karaoke-style gameplay using modified instruments, you and your friends can sing or rock out while recreating nearly 1,500 different songs spanning 70 years of recorded music. And in a gleefully obvious reference to the Beatles’ iconic rooftop concert, NIGHT\SHIFT 2014 will feature the chance to play on Vidyard ‘s rooftop patio!
As the video game medium matures, it begs the question of whether video games are a form of artistic expression. Is Rock Band™ a form of musical creation? Is it an interactive way to experience music? Or is it just a rockin’ good time?
Nerd Nite KW believes it’s all of these things and more. So warm up those vocal chords, practice those drum fills and get ready to shred that guitar solo, because tonight, YOU are the rock star!
