So much to update! Let’s get right to it…
First, again, this month’s 8static is Saturday, Sept. 20th. The lineup includes a few local-boys-done-good and some far-away favorites on both music and visuals. You’ll marvel at the unpredictable, experimental, electric and eclectic sounds and sights of our own SKGB! You’ll have your ears rocked right off your head by Kansas City-based superstar Shoujo Eyes!! And you’ll continue to wonder who stole all the ice cream with Philly mainstay Storm Blooper!!! All while being drenched in colors and eye-pleasing animations from ohhinaifu!!!! So much excitement, so many opportunities to use exclamation marks, and even more reasons to not miss this one.
Next, just a friendly reminder that tickets for this year’s 8static Festival, Oct. 16-18 at the First Unitarian Church in Philly, are on sale now! We’ve already announced 2/3rds of the lineup and will be completing the set in just a few days, so get your tickets now while they’re still hot.
And speaking of tickets, we’re excited to share a super cool show at Philly’s Mann Center for the Performing Arts just the day before this month’s 8static. Kick off your awesome, video-game-music-inspired weekend Friday, Sept. 19, at The Mann with “Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions,” the official Pokemon live orchestral concert! “Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions” will take audiences of all ages on a powerful musical retrospective through the popular video game franchise’s most memorable melodies. The show gives loyal fans and newcomers a chance to experience the evolution of the franchise through all‐new orchestral arrangements and carefully timed visuals drawing from all the classic and recent Pokemon video games. If you’re a Pokemon fan, you absolutely will not want to miss this truly unique experience. (And you won’t want to miss the two arrangements from Jake Kaufman, a.k.a. Virt, who is performing at our festival!)
