May’s 8static (M8static?) features a perfect, classic lineup that truly celebrates what’s so awesome about the chiptune world: A heavy-hitting dance machine, a local superstar, an international treat, and a visual mastermind. I challenge you to come up with a bill that’s more exciting and diverse than that!
TREY FREY will be returning from West Virginia with his unbelievable, danceable and unforgettable dance tracks. Fresh on the heels of his outstanding new release, “Refresh,” Trey has been wowing crowds all over the place, from his performance at 8static Festival in October to MAGFest in January and all points between and beyond. He’s one of those guys who truly pushes the boundaries of the Game Boy sound chip, so you’ll want to be there for this opportunity to see him up close.
We’re excited to bring back hometown hero Saint for another set full of smooth chip jams and unexpected surprises. Dain is a Philly mainstay and a local renaissance man, whose versatile experiences outside of the music world truly do translate into his tunes. You never know what you’re gonna get during a Saint set — funky pop, sweet vocals, intense dance jams, proggy masterpieces… Come to the show and find out what he’s got in store for us this month!
You’re also not going to want to miss Men Of Mega, a fantastic international surprise. One half of this awesome Holland-based duo will be bringing his fun, catchy, cheerful brand of chip across the Atlantic to rock Philly and represent the legendary EINDBASS crew!
Finally, but not least, on visuals is Baltimore’s unique and talented pixelseed. This dude has a knack for finding themes that match up perfectly with each performer, and his sets with TREY FREY in particular have gone down in history as uncanny matchups. Your eyes will not want to miss this!
