Umloud: A Rock Band event for Child's Play

<p>Think back to the last time you played<i> Rock Band</i>. Didn't you wish you could rock out to "More than a Feeling" in front of hundreds of people, instead of just your cat? Well, this week on December 9 at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco, gamers will get a chance to do just that. You'll be able to win fabulous prizes in a raffle and silent action too, all for a generous cause! And if you live in the area, you should definitely come out! <br /> <br /><a target="_blank" href="">Umloud</a> is a charity event organized by various members of the gaming industry, with the hope of raising lots of money for <a target="_blank" href="">Child's Play Charity</a>. Many Ultimate Band packages have been sold, which gives people a chance to perform their favorite <i>Rock Band</i> song on the DNA Lounge main stage, along with all star treatment such as a photo shoot and gaming swag. This year, one "Headliner" package was auctioned off to a group that calls themselves "Broasis." You can learn about their (hilarious) bro-story as well as more brotastic details of this event below. </p><p>
<br /> <br />Even if you aren't one of the people performing, you can help the cause by showing up to DNA Lounge on December 9. For a small $10 donation at the door, you can watch Broasis and other entertaining acts perform with a full light and sound show. <br /> <br />Throughout the night, there will be a chance to buy raffle tickets for prizes including games and other awesome gaming stuff. I saw a small portion of the prizes to be given out, and it included a Mad Catz <i>Marvel vs Capcom 2</i> TE Fight Stick, multiple copies of <i> DJ Hero 2</i>, <i>Halo: Reach Legendary Edition</i>, and even a Sega Genesis and a Sega CD! Some prizes are "too good" for a raffle, and will be auctioned off at a silent auction that will go on all night. Throughout this week, more information about prizes will be released on the <a target="_blank" href="">Umloud blog</a>, so keep checking out all the cool stuff to win! <br /> <br />This event is shaping up to be an awesome way to spend a Thursday night, all for the benefit of children (which is always awesome.) Even if you aren't in San Francisco, you can help out by donating $10 dollars on the <a target="_blank" href="">main site</a>, and checking out the <a target="_blank" href="">live stream</a> on December 9 for all the performances, courtesy of Justin.TV! <br /> <br />Members of DtoidSF are making plans to attend, so if you are in the area you should let us know on the <a target="_blank" href="">e-mailer</a> and join us! In fact, yours truly will be on the main stage at some point in the night, and you definitely don't want to miss that! <br /> <br /><img src="" border="0" /></p>
