So as you can see from my post last night, my Father's Day present was a way-cool trip to Lincoln Park for a delicious dinner at a killer Lebanese restaurant called Maza and then to the Elbo Room to see my favorite new Chicago band I Fight Dragons. They were terrific live we had a blast! Here's a YouTube clip of how they make their music, they're sort of vaguely Weezer-ish but with a slightly more fun and uptempo vibe and they use a pretty wide array of electronically-controlled MIDI synthesizers hooked to: Video game controllers.
Check it out.
Here's how the controllers work. Neat stuff. The guy playing drums and piano simultaneously with a Guitar Hero guitar and a Power Glove blows my mind a little.
