We celebrate our 4th anniversary at 8static on October 13th! This will be a very special, all-star event that you won’t want to miss at any cost! Back in 2008, the legendary Bit Shifter played the very first 8static at Studio 34. We are very honored to bring him back for our anniversary this month (as he also celebrates his birthday) and blow our minds with amazing LSDJ dance grooves.
Coming off his iconic Blip Festival performance this year, Radlib makes his 8static debut and will close out the night with some new material for us. Staging a retro-dance party with dual vintage FM synthesis enabled laptops, he will have everyone on their feet dancing to his upbeat jams.
Our very own Philadelphia showcase artist this year is the amazing an0va. A little math-rock permeates his hybrid offerings that are both cerebral and emotional. See why he took the community by storm last year with his debut release, “The Teaching Machine”. We are very proud to have him representing phillychip!
Last, but not least we have some freshly emerging talent from Michigan, Nikola Whallon. Having a diverse background in music, Nikola has impressed us this year with several killer open mic performances at 8static. He performed at MAGStock (sister event to the blockbuster MAGFest) this summer & we welcome him to our show this month.
Our visualists all come from Philly this month. 8static founder, NO CARRIER returns along with Chromacle and Animal Style. This crew will beautify all the fantastic music through our new double-projector setup.
Make sure you arrive early because at 8pm we will have a special event at this 8static. Presenting 12 veteran performers from 8statics past, we will debut our Alumni Showcase! An hour long set filled with top talent in the scene will warm you up before the main event begins. There will be some BIG surprises during this. DO NOT MISS!
IF you can’t make it, be sure to check out our live audio stream on Arecibo Radio and join us at our after-party at The Institute bar down the block where Decktonic will DJ away whatever is left of your energy and inhibitions.
