The time has arrived for another 8static and the line-up is looking pretty sweet. This month’s headliners are New Jersey’s Disassembler, Baltimore’s Shawnphase, and coming all the way from the west coast, LA’s Trash80. Trash80’s last performance was back in November of 2009, and is considered to be one of the greatest performances 8static has ever seen. Each will bring their unique chiptune sounds and combine it with the visual stylings of Visualicious for what should turn out to be an awesome show.
Before the show starts there will be a workshop with Dino Lionetti (of Cheap Dinosaurs) who will be talking about how to write chip music with odd time signatures. The workshop starts at 7pm, immediately followed by the open mic. Spots for the open mic are limited, so get there early to sign up.
If you’re not familiar with any of the headliners you can check out the videos below to get a taste of what you can expect. If you’re in the Philly Metro area and love chiptune, you may want to make your way over to PhilaMOCA this Saturday (April 14th).
There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.
