January blew by and February is upon us. If you’re starting to feel the midwinter blues, you should treat your ear balls to some fancy new chip-tunes by the artists of 8 static this Saturday.
We may have just avoided the apocalypse, but doom is still upon us. Doomcloud will be redefining his sound with some brand new equipment and some NES styled dance music. If you need some throbbing house music in your life, Doomcloud would be happy to oblige.
Local guy, Ro-Bear will be performing some of his latest songs for the pleasure of your Gameboy loving ears. His songs are brilliantly melodic and are some of the most complex and hypnotizing that you’ll find being made with a bit of electricity and handheld silicon.
The artist formerly known as Da Pantz will be making his debut change of name and style here at February’s 8 Static. Ricky Brugal has been making autobiographical songs for awhile now, so if you’d like to catch up with what has been going on, as filtered through vintage hardware, you should definitely come check out the show to hear his new sounds.
In addition to having an awesome website, Cutman has been mashing together chiptunes and video game music as DJ Cutman for awhile. This month though, he’s presenting your ear holes with some brand new tunes for you to dance to. Not limiting himself to vintage hardware, he’s even remixed some songs and sounds from Nintendo’s WiiU. He also has a pretty cool helmet.
Guybrush, insert Monkey Island reference here, will be on hand to provide the other holes in your head with some retina searing visuals. He mashes up a mix of realtime and audioreactive visuals to provide you with the best possible, one-of-a-kind, show experience. He’s also going to be manning the pre-show workshop about the demoscene.
You’ll definitely want to check out The Institute Bar after the show for some more music, dancing, and drinks. As an 8 Static patron, you get 10% off your bill too.
This month is shaping up to be a fantastic one for 8 Static so you’ll not want to miss it!
Tickets: $7-$10. (10 bucks gets you an awesome sticker for supporting 8 Static)
