As promised, August 2014’s 8static is a BEAST. It’s a NYC and NYC-ish-area takeover!! We’ve got some returning favorites and unique chip all-stars taking the stage, so I think it’s more than safe to say a good time is guaranteed for all.
Anyone who has seen Goferboy before knows he’s one of the most energetic, flashy and unpredictable performers in the world of chip. Get ready to get down with some awesome tunes and awesome times!
Warez Waldo? I’ll tell you warez. This is an exciting new project from renaissance man Carl Peczynski, whom you might remember from such chip personas as Oxygenstar, Radlib, SadNES, and a million others. I’m told he hails from the planet Zaxxon and “is interested in one thing: to provide the people of Earth with smooth grooves and sassy vibes.” Soundblaster 16 jams? Yes please.
But get ready to really kick it up with Kris Keyser, another extremely intense and amazing musician (and all-around nice guy, too). Kris’s unforgettable blend of catchy, melodic and impressive Game Boy tunes and high-energy onstage antics make him an incredible live performer you will absolutely not want to miss.
And finally, on visuals and performing a set of his own will be Let’s Disinfect, whom you might remember from Thorazine Unicorn. His set promises to include a variety of eclectic electronics, and his visuals are sure to leave a lasting impression!
