Re: “The 7-Day Portland Karaoke-A-Thon Blog Begins

I wish you were coming to Ground Kontrol's Rock Band Tuesday for Day 3! It's back in full swing at our newly-renovated digs; the new lounge has low seating and lit tables all around, giving the "stage" an intimate, unplugged feel. Plus, the new game and downloads feature 3-part vocal harmonies!

Re: “Beatles Infest Ground Kontrol

Yes, I have express permission from HMXSean, HMXCasey, and others from Harmonix to provide this sneak preview, it is definitely tonight at 8PM. We will have all Rock Band 2 songs available including this week's PAX, Freezepop, and Unplugged DLC. Get to Ground Kontrol early to put your song requests in!
