Dudes! 8static, Philadelphia’s own chiptune revue, is this weekend. It’s going to be awesome, as always, and if you’re in the area you should come.
Starpause will be there, playing his first ever Philly gig. He’s also doing a free workshop beforehand on using the delightful LittleGPTracker. I really like Starpause just because his Twitter account is used for nothing but haikus. Animal Style (featured in the above video) and ARY are performing as well, and CHIKA is doing visuals. I frickin’ love Animal Style. His work and Starscream’s earlier stuff is what made me start taking chiptune music seriously.
The show is Saturday, July 18th, at 8:00pm. It’s at Studio 34, off of Baltimore Ave (West Philly). I’ll be there. I’ll be the awkward looking guy wearing a Black Lantern ring with dress shoes.
