Big Changes for Rock Band Tuesdays

Rock Band Is Changing!We’ve been bringing the rock every week for nearly seven years, but all good things must come to an end! Through December, we’ll rock Tuesday nights in style with all of you.

But don’t worry, this isn’t the end! Starting January 11th, Rock Band will return as a monthly event so you can get your dose of plastic rock every second Sunday.

Thanks to all of the hardcore regulars and casual fans alike that kept the event so much fun to host every week. We hope you come back for the new monthly event and stay tuned for more announcements regarding new events at Ground Kontrol!
