Our last show of the year will be on December 8th and will feature some heavy hitters that will showcase some of the chip scene’s unusual & complex talent.
Philadelphia’s progressive rock “chip super-group”, Cheap Dinosaurs will be returning to show us all how several unbelievably talented people can collaborate and produce some of the scenes best music. Incorporating live guitar, drums, bass & keyboards along with LSDJ, these veterans of the scene will take you on a musical journey and prepare you for their upcoming headlining performance at MAGFest in January. Do not miss this!
Philly-chip wünderkind, SKGB, was born in 8static’s early years as an open mic performer and eventually netted himself bigger & bigger gigs. We proudly bring him back to mesmerize us with his conceptual show, “An SKGB Christmas Special”. Wear your ugly holiday sweaters to receive free download codes and experience sonic deconstruction that will redefine your preconceptions of what chip music can be. This is not your little brother’s Gameboy music.
Our special guest is coming all the way from Grand Rapids, MI for their 8static debut. Mail Order Monsters perform all their music live using vintage Commodore 64 gear! It’s been way too long to have not had these guys in Philly yet and we are honored to have them play this month!
Visuals will be provided by Baltimore’s own Pixelseed, also making his 8static debut this month! Resident visualist and organizer of Byte Nyte, Pixelseed has prefers to make a statement with visuals & will turn a mirror on society during his performance that may make you think.
Our workshop will be an introduction to performing live visuals using custom software on classic hardware by 8static founder, NO CARRIER. It has been a few years since he has done a workshop with us and we are honored to have him return with a basic session. If you have been wondering how to get involved with performing live visuals, this is the workshop you have been waiting for. Don’t miss. NO CARRIER will also be hosting our after-party upstairs at The Institute Bar down the block. He will be performing a digital & chip reggae set & don’t forget, your bill will be 10% off!
Admission will be a sliding scale of $7-$10. Those that support 8static with a $10 admission fee will receive a special sticker exclusive to this month’s show! Spread the word and get your friends to join us at another amazing 8static at PhilaMOCA!!!
