New York City Happenings – Bee Social: Rock Band New Songs Preview!

Posted Thursday, May 22nd, 2008 at 4:26 pm by Neighborbee in Social Bees. More in 10009

Last night, neighborbeeblog got out of the house and had a very good time at a preview party for the newest batch of Rock Band’s downloadable songs.

The party was held at Angels and Kings, which is known to most people as Fall Out Boy/guyliner aficionado Pete Wentz‘s bar (where “Pete Wentz Sucks” was scrawled all over the bathroom walls). The crowd consisted of Rock Band enthusiasts, many of whom played new song after new song, fueled by their inner rock gods and free drinks.

Harmonix has thus far added 110 downloadable songs for the game, ranging from The Monkees’ “Last Train to Clarksville” to “Crushcrushcrush” by Paramore (thank you, promo ads during The Hills, for introducing me to Paramore and not making me feel so incredibly old). The neighborbeeblog crew sang our fair share of songs, including My Sharona, Roam, and More Than A Feeling. We would have tried out several more, but we ended up playing the same songs multiple times, since we, um, failed a few times.

In between shredding and belting out/mutilating our favorite tunes, we got to talk to one of Harmonix’s developers, who informed us that not only is Rock Band for Wii coming out in June (as Gossip Girl would say, OMFG), but that The Cars’ super-classic first album will be available for download in its entirety on May 27. I could make the joke about the new songs being just what I needed, but I’ll refrain. Sort of.
