The Beatles: Rock Band Is In the House

It's like Christmas morning here at Rocks Off today. We just got our copy of The Beatles: Rock Band and, like a car wreck or the Williams Tower waterwall, can't stop staring at it. (Must... look... away...) It looks like developer Harmonix spared no expense - and, at $250 for the limited edition, neither will you - but even before hooking the damn thing up, Rocks Off can kind of understand what all the hype is about. As an old bassist ourselves, we're especially looking forward to strapping on the digitized replica of Paul McCartney's signature Hofner.

And, best of all, we're sharing it with you. Come ride the "Yellow Submarine" (and drink a couple of Yellow Submarines) with Rocks Off this evening at Coffee Groundz, 2503 Bagby. "Helter Skelter" zero hour is about 6:30 p.m. See you there, and see more pictures after the jump.
