That's right, friends! Sharpen your axes and reload your guns, Minibosses will be headlining this year's Chicago Loot Drop on Sunday, November 20th at Reggie's Rock Club! These legends of gamecore rock bring your favorite NES game soundtracks to life with the raw energy and BAM! as only a double-guitar 4-man rock outfit could. Minibosses have played at PAX Prime, Defcon and a variety of swanky, geek-friendly venues across the US, but this is the first time in over six years that these four fine fellows have graced a stage in Chicago. So you won't want to miss this rare, retro-game rock experience! This announcement is especially exciting news for our band contestants, as our lucky finalists will be sharing the stage with these legends of gamecore. Minibosses will also be taking the lead seat on our judging panel and determining which of our finalists wins the shiny grand prize!
