You know, they say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. But regardless of what happens in terms of the notoriously unpredictable Philly-area weather, we’re gonna have to amend that silly old trope in order to make up for the fact that the next 8static takes place at the very end of the month and features a killer, super-exciting lineup. This show — which we’ll again hold at The North Star Bar & Restaurant, 2639 Poplar Street, Philadelphia — promises to take us into the Spring in a manner that will be anything but lamb-like.
Kentucky’s classy Mr. Wimmer will bring his instrument- and vocal-infused chip rock to the stage. You might recall hearing him play some of his dreamy, Roy Orbison-influenced songs at previous open mics. We’re all very excited to see a full set, and you should be too!
Speaking of open mics, you also might’ve seen SNESEI showing off his super fun tunes before the main acts at previous 8statics. Hailing all the way from Detroit, SNESEI has already warned us that he plans to rock every single face with a high-energy, extremely danceable set. He’s a colorful character with even more colorful songs.
Rounding out the musical portion of this month’s bill is Philly’s own Ro-Bear, who will be returning to 8static to play some of his trademark melodic, meditative emo-chip awesomeness. He’s been a Philly staple for years, and his sets are always intelligent, fun and beautiful, so you should be excited to see what he’s got in store for us!
On the visual side, ohhinaifu is a super-talented, self-described “Pixel artist, Visualist, Illustrator, Graphic Designer, video game enthusiast” who will dazzle your senses. She’s also trekking from Michigan, so come on out and support her and these other decidedly more-lion-than-lamb performers as we carry you into April!
