Welcome back to our first show since 8static Festival last month! This will be our first show at Underground Arts, just a few blocks south of our old venue. It’s one of the city’s most exciting new spots, and we’re stoked to be moving our event there. So spend a night out of the cold and get away from the Thanksgiving shopping insanity at 8static on November 30th.
First up, we have one of the heavy hitters at 8static fest, Trey Frey! Currently living in West Virginia, Trey has been crafting intense electro-dance LSDJ jams around the mid-Atlantic region for a few years now. Using up to four game boys simultaneously, Trey’s wizardry has built a reputation for one of the most exciting young performers in the chip scene. After bringing down the house at BRKFest and 8static Fest, he’ll treat us to one more show before making his MAGFest debut on the main stage in January!
8static’s own Animal Style will be returning to his first 8static in over a year. Much of his music is new and unheard unless you attending some of the other events he’s played around the area. Animal Style has always pushed the envelope for creativity and mixed media with his music. He’s written many fantastic tracks on Game Boy, NES, Sega Genesis and more, accompanied by his custom square-wave distorted guitar, nebulaphones and byte beats. We can assure you that this show will be full of similar surprises.
Coming all the way down from Boston, we welcome Glenntai in his 8static debut. A seminal voice in the chip scene with his clip stream show, Glenntai is also known for his highly energetic and hype stage performance. Don’t miss this chance to see one of Boston’s gems.
Last but not least, Defiant Systems is playing his first main-stage spot for 8static. Originally writing a lot of dark and moody industrial-influenced compositions on LSDJ, he’s begun moving into crafting tracks on the Philly-fave console, the Sega Genesis!
Visuals will be provided by Philly’s own Enerjawn, whom you might remember from last month’s festival (if you were able to piece your brain back together after his set). He’s been known to mix VHS tapes, optical feedback and general visual insanity, so make sure your eyes are ready. We know ours are… so, “see” you there!
