These musicians need to know how to play four cords.

Once upon entering the venue you pay the cover and extend your hand to be stamped. However, the doorman ties a string around your wrist which you discover extends high into the ceiling. Three others surround you and do the same to each of your limbs.

When the music starts you notice the band isn't playing instruments but each is controlling a set of levers and winches. You also notice that the strings are tugging on your every limb, compelling you to flail in a corresponding manner. You find that your dancing has improved as a result of this.
