Guitar Hero never purported to be the equivalent of an Air Force flight simulator for aspiring musicians. Its an addictive, button-pressing challenge. Nonetheless, whiny critics argue that the PlayStation 2 phenomenon makes virtuosity too easy. Where were they when Crazy Taxi made crazy taxi-ing too easy? Or when the difficulty of rolling a little monkey inside a plastic ball was obliterated by Super Monkey Ball? Come get schooled in button pressing at Guitar Hero night at Club 403 (403 North Fifth Street, Kansas City, Kansas, 913-901-7393) from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. Bring your own wee plastic guitar or use the clubs.
Mondays, Wednesdays, 8 p.m.-1 a.m., 2007
