Podcast: The Minibosses
By Jonathan McNamara
Last time we saw the Minibosses press start on their own brand of 8-bit Nintendo music, it was under the influence of several spirits at Yucca Tap Room's Shotfest 2. It was good, but unmistakably degraded by a waterfall of alcoholic substances.
Looking for a chance to see the Minibosses at their best (arguably)? See them play with Straylight, Rising Pain, Skinwalkers, Birds Eye View and The Piracy Project this Friday at The Ruby Room. Friday's performance will feature new bassist Robin Vining says Miniboss Aaron Burke. "Our former bassist Ben Baraldi has moved over to guitar duties."
Before you go, check out "Blaster Master / Contra" from the Minibosses album Brass right here on Up on the Sun.
