A Band of Gamers
Stay current with gaming and discover new music. Three best mates meet at the virtual pub to share their lifelong passion of video games and music discovery. Two hobbies in separate segments by aging gamers who love talking about the latest trends, playing new games alongside their retro favorites and recommending records.

Shane wrestles a beaver on top of side B to the sound of crunchy guitars and bagpipes. Joel celebrates the equinox by attending a great local show and feels embarrassed by his Amiibo purchase.

Side A: Music (0:07:13)

Shane is listening to The Real McKenzies and sees the Gaslight Anthem at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on March 19th. Of course he share his thorough thoughts on the gig and then shares his impressions of Vault Package #23 from Thirdman Records.

Joel checks out Sugar Stems, The Atomic Spins and Great Lake Drifters at the Equinox Music Festival after demolishing his basement.

Shane's buys Phil X Signature PX-100 guitar pickups and puts it in the door waiting to go in the vault.

Side B: Video Games (0:50:00)

Shane is playing the official beaver video game, new Pinball Arcade Adams Family table, Driveclub lamborghinis (PS4) and wants to play Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (PS4)

Joel is playing Super Smash Brothers 3DS with an Amiibo but isn't playing as the Amiibo. He also isn't playing, at least not well, Surgeon Simulator (PS4) and Octodad (PS4)
