Four years have flown by in an audible hailstorm of 8 bit beeps and boops. October 11th will be the 4th Anniversary of 8 Static, the fantastic geeks holding down the chip-tune scene here in Philly. The fact that this October show is their 4th anniversary has not gone unnoticed. Prepare yourself for an all out, all night, ear shattering celebration of 8-Bit music.
Bit Shifter, co-founder of Blip Festival and 8 Static first show alum, will be caressing some buttons on his lo-fi equipment in order to get everyone dancing. This legend in the chi-tune community has played over 200 shows all over the world and is sure to put on one hell of a performance.
Ratlib will be bringing along a pair of vintage laptops so he can kick out the jams and force your feet to fly in formations you never thought possible. His upbeat and catchy tunes will be sure to keep you humming late into the after party.
Philly local An0va will be bringing along his style of mathematical auditory wonderment. His debut album, The Teaching Machine, is an incredible blend of melodies that will tickle the parts of your brain you didn’t know you had.
Nikola Whallon is no stranger to 8 Static. In fact, he’s been to several open mic’s and now will take his rightful place up in the headlining acts. His signature blend of moody music.
But, this being their 4th anniversary, this show will be a little different. Instead of the usual workshop on creating chip-tunes, you’ll be treated to a lineup of TWELVE 8 Static Alumni who will be performing a one hour set.
Yes you read that correctly. 16 chip-tune artists are going to be packed into PhilaMOCA for a night of insane music and dancing. Power down your Gameboys folks and let the professionals take you for the ride of your life!
