Pitchfork today has posted the upcoming tour dates for the band The Advantage.

These guys combine two of my favorite things growing up...videogames and gimmicks. They are an 8-bit Nintendo cover band, and apparently they pull it off incredibly well...

Their website looks like a Nintendo game before you blew in it...but it does have some MP3's to download...which is great...Here's the music from Double Dragon II...

The Advantage - Double Dragon II

Anyway...they are playing 2 shows in New York in November...one at The Knitting Factory on the 6th and one at Northsix on the 7th...I think it'll be fun. For a lot of us growing up...this was the soundtrack of our afterschool existence...each song brings back countless memories...If they pull it off as well as advertised, it should be a real trip.
