Who are these guys? Why is this concert performance unique?

Cracked by: aniline , udupendra and akhi only! Good Job!

Answer:

Jonathon Coulton and his band performing “Still Alive” on Rock Band’s instruments to mark the availability of that song on Rock Band. This song appeared in Valve’s Portal (My favorite game ever).

The rest of the concert was absolutely normal, with conventional instruments :)

    Valve game “Portal”‘s awesome endgame song “Still Alive” being performed live using Guitar Hero by its maker Jonathan Coulton.

    This is a concert proabably involving “The Rock Band” series of video games, available on Xbox and PS3s, as the means of competition/performance.

    The four padded drum controller and the background image gives it away

    Going out on a limb here and guessing these guys are the Guitar Zeroes, a band who play their stuff on Guitar Hero.

    Time crunch so half answer..
    No idea who the folks are. But the background has to be the Guitar Heros video game.

    Jonathon Coulton, Veronica Belmont etc playing the Portal theme song ‘Still Alive’ – as GlaDOS, the AI protagonist of Portal. Of course, like the true geeks that they are, they are performing on ‘Rock Band’.

    This Jonathon Coulton performance at SF is being released in CD and DVD form under the title ‘Best.Concert.Ever’
