Play NBA 2K9 with Manchester
The indie band Manchester Orchestra,
hot off the release of their second full-length album and an appearance on the
Late Show with David Letterman, will play NBA 2K9 with Xbox LIVE Gold Members
May 28. If you’re an Xbox LIVE Gold Member (if not, upgrade now!), and you want
a chance to play with Manchester Orchestra, send a friend request to the
following Gamertag (Manchester GWF) and be online half an hour before (1:30 P.M.
ET) the Game with Fame session starts on Thursday, May 28, 2:00 P.M. ET.
Manchester Orchestra formed as a
reaction to the stifling atmosphere of suburban Atlanta, Georgia, and the band
has been recording since 2005. Their first album has never been released to the
public, but their widely available scorcher, I’m Like A Virgin Losing A Child,
received widespread critical acclaim. After releasing four EPs, their latest
full-length, Mean Everything To Nothing, hit the charts with a vengeance with
its hot single "I’ve Got Friends" that they recently performed on the Late Show
with David Letterman. Sports gamers may also know of them as their single
"Wolves At Night" from the first album appeared in EA SPORTS’ NHL 08.
