Orleans, a restaurant in Somerville that often hosts Guitar Hero nights that allow you to play the popular game in a bar setting, is hosting a Rock Band benefit on Sunday for the Italian Home for Children, which helps troubled kids. Orleans, Social Boston Sports, and the Boston On Your Feet Project ask that you come in costume prepared to show your video game skills. There will be prizes for the top scorers.
