Remember the good 'ol days where we had parties and people left at sunrise!?!? Yeah. This'll be like that. Bring drinks/snacks to share. :D

    Hey everyone, my GISHWHES scavenger hunt team is doing a FLASHMOB this Saturday in San Jose to sing/play "Carry On, My Wayward Son." We welcome as many people as we can get, but if anyone can sing harmony, that would be even better! This music will be playing with real instruments, not plastic ones, but I know some of you can do that too.

    Our team plans to practice individually and then rehearse together before going to the venue (San Jose Pride, near the Tech Museum).

    Quick question - is there a sign up sheet for what we're bringing?

    I'm torn between pasta salad and pineapple upside down cake. Any input on which would be better to bring? Both would be made by me.

      I went with the pasta salad.

      July 20, 2013

    • Antwon

      And thank you for the pasta salad! We collectively snarfed it all down like the opportunistic noshers that we are. :D

    Ugh meant to update my RSVP. Something came up, next time for sure.

  • Jonathan H.

    Gotta wake up early tomorrow to meet someone in sf, so maybe not this time. There will be other all night parties this summer, right?

  • The T.

    Excited to be there is it xbox or ps3. want to bring my own instrument

    July 19, 2013

    • John

      It's Wii.

      Don't diss the Wii or there'll be trouble.

    Not trying to be a perv, but a recommendation to newbies that haven't been before: it gets HOT in there. Don't wear a lot of clothing, or at least come in layers you can peel off. You'll thank me later ;) also I will be bringing some Gatorade to rehydrate as well as some cookies!

    July 20, 2013

    • Lindsay

      We know the truth, Mindy, you want to see us all naked :P

      ...she is right, though.

  • Dave B.

    Ok leaving Santa Cruz now! Be there soon!

    July 20, 2013

  • Terri M.

    We'll be bringing some chips and dip, and maybe some sliced veggies. I've got an early morning tomorrow, so we won't be able to stay real late.

    July 20, 2013

  • The T.

    Girlfriend spoils all of my fun....sorry maybe next time.

    July 20, 2013

  • XaiaX

    We don't have any way to get home so we'd have to leave on the train after like an hour. So we're gonna have to skip this one. :(

    July 20, 2013

  • Clare

    I'm going to make something sweet. Just don't know what.

    July 20, 2013

  • The T.

    And what can i bring?

    July 19, 2013

  • Jesse T.

    This sounds like so much fun. I am taking my kids to the Laurence Hall of Science tomorrow, so we're going to have a long day, otherwise I would be there!

    July 19, 2013

  • Rachel

    We're definitely going to have a chair and cold beverage (cooler with ice in it) problem. Please help if you can. :-)

    July 19, 2013

    • Kathryn H.

      I will try to remember to bring a folding chair. I plan to arrive early and leave when it gets crowded, but I can retrieve the chair (and my baking dish) later.

      July 19, 2013

  • John

    Rachel, I just remembered that RB3 couldn't play your copy of Everlong (Foo Fighters track from RB2), which is one of my favorite songs. I think you'd need to re-download the RB2 export pack to fix that one track. Would you mind doing that?

    Also, if you're still curious about getting custom songs for your Wii, someone wrote up a guide to doing that here: http://rockband.scorehero.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=690462. It looks like a complicated process, but you could add hundreds of new songs if you do it.

  • Kathryn H.

    My big plan for dessert is a plum clafoutie. I just think the name is hilarious. (And the recipe looks easy, and you can make it with any stone fruit, including the surplus plums on hand.) I'll probably bring cantaloupe & honeydew too.

    July 16, 2013

  • Rachel

    Hey guys. Feel free to bring a few chairs. (I've got about 8....)

    July 16, 2013

  • Rachel

    I took away the attendance limit. Beware... It may get crowded. :)

      July 12, 2013

    • Rachel

      Uh... Yeah. I reinstated the attendance limit! Holy fuckballs. :D

    Hey guys, I'm new to the group. Hope we can have fun!

    Plus a Sophie?

    I thought I'd add some humor. Zero Punctuation is very NSFW. It's a Aussie who talks very fast and very vulgar doing reviews of video games. These are on the older side, but still good.

    GH3: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/17-Guitar-Hero-III

    GHWT: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/452-Guitar-Hero-World-Tour

    GHvsRB: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/941-Beatles-Rock-Band-and-Guitar-Hero-5

    I couldn't find any reviews the older RBs to my disappointment.

    July 12, 2013

  • Leisha

    I'm in! I'll let you know in advance if it doesn't work. I will PROBABLY be bring Pasta Salad with veggies in it.

    July 1, 2013

    • Leisha

      Doh, meant to post this in the one for this week! Dunno what I'm bringing on the 20th!

      July 1, 2013

  • Astrea W.

    Gahh! I want to be there, but by then I will be back in SoCal. Have fun!

    June 28, 2013

  • Dennis

    Sorry, was planning on going to Sophie & Jason's that day.

    June 19, 2013

    • Rachel

      So you're coming?

      June 20, 2013

    • Dennis

      Yes.

    Good news - we won't be in Colorado anymore. Bad news - we have another commitment for that Saturday... Standing by for FOURTH date change ;)

    June 21, 2013

  • Kathryn H.

    I'll see if I can make it now that it's the weekend before Steamstock. Hopefully I will have enough time to prep that I can take a day or two off. (I'm not one of the bands, but I'm vending, and it's a two-day show so I want plenty of stock. My displays should be ready for the Triton Museum event this Saturday.)

    June 20, 2013

  • Mike P.

    We'll be in Colorado :(

    June 20, 2013

  • Dave B.

    Awww yeah! This is the day I'm celebrating my pre golden birthday! So I'll be at Santa Cruz during the day but I'll end the night rockin out!
