From hissing lawns contributor Petee Worrell:
As one of Savannah’s most established venues for touring bands, The Wormhole hosted yet another slew of awesome bands Wednesday night much to the delight of Savannah locals.
First up was Omingnome, a crew of Savannah natives who paired their psychedelic style of rock with sufficiently trippy yet simple visuals.
After Omingnome came Bit Brigade. Armed with a full band as well as one member dedicated solely to manning a classic Nintendo Entertainment System, the band plays the full soundtrack to the chosen game of the night while the game is (with a lot of skill and a little luck) completed live before the crowd. The band’s been known to perform under several monikers indicating which game they’ll be showcasing on a certain night (MegaBand for MegaMan, Castlebandia for Castlevania, ContraBand for Contra, etc.). The band’s set was as tight and well-timed as a full run through of MegaMan 2 that was performed in sequence with it.
Finally, The Protomen took the stage to close out the night. Armed with theatrics and stage presence that harkens back to the styling of David Bowie or Queen, the band performed a killer set that depicted a dystopian future loosely based off of the storyline of the MegaMan series. Perhaps the best part of the performance, aside from the bevy of enthusiasm that the band put into the set themselves, was the sheer amount of excitement that the band drew out from the crowd.
Below are a few shots of each band in action starting with Omingnome, then Bit Brigade, and finally The Protomen. Be sure to keep an ear to the ground for more awesome shows at The Wormhole, including a special (not so) secret show this Saturday featuring Band of Horses for those of you lucky enough to score tickets.
