Rusty Barrel patrons strap on the plastic axes tonight to compete in the weekly PS2 Guitar Hero Challenge. “Some of these people are freakin’ unbelievable,” says Rusty Jesset, the club’s owner. “I guess they sit in their basement and practice all day long.” The popular video game allows amateur guitarists to play along to songs by Rush and Jane’s Addiction. Points are awarded every time a correct note is hit. The contestant with the highest score after five rounds wins $25. “It’s fun, especially for us ’80s big-hair-band kinda guys,” says Jesset. “If you miss a note, you miss a note. It’s not as embarrassing as being a karaoke idiot on a microphone.”
