  • Just a heads up. For any downloaded Rock Band songs to work your 360 has to be actively connected to XBox Live. That might be hard to do at the bar. When I brought my 360 and all the Rock Band stuff to a friends Super Bowl party I found that out the hard way. Only the songs that came with the game worked. It listed the downloaded tracks but would not play them. I think its a copyright thing.

    Yep! The Ashland is actually a bar that does RockBand tournaments and stuff on a regular basis and have XBox live accounts. I'm also bringing my 360 hard drive, stage kit & XBox Live login so we'll have access to my DLC (and PJ avatars!) as well. So there should be no worries, but thanks for the reminder to re-confirm w/the bar :)

    I have to agree, but in this economic downturn, I can't justify that type of trip to play Rock Band. If you can get any member of PJ there to play some, I would definitely consider it.
