The legendary Nullsleep, will be returning to 8static! This scene pioneer should be no stranger to most of you, as he has been a major scene player since the classic chip music era. No one should miss this rare opportunity to see his live set! Nullsleep’s dark soundscapes and intelligent dance composition will break through to even the most skeptical listener. It’s an honor to have him back at 8static again after what feels like way too long!
We had to reschedule scene chameleon, Doomcloud‘s set last month due to the blizzard. But he’s back on the lineup this month and ready to go all-out! He may perform under many different monikers, but this time he will be completely redefining an existing one! Presenting his live debut of all-live hardware, NES dance music, you could almost call this Doomcloud 2.0! Don’t let the name or platform change interrupt your perception of what will be an amazing groove session as we close out the night in style!
We have two debuts at this 8static! First, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, we have Noisewaves! Consisting of a drummer, guitar player and an NES, Noisewaves’ music has a bittersweet post-rock influenced sound. They blew us all away at MAGFest 9, had the honor of playing Blip festival 2011 and more recently charmed the audience at Rochester chip fest!
Our other newcomer is coming out all the way from Portland, Oregon! Northwest chip scene player, Mechlo is not just a Gameboy musician. He is also known out west for his involvement with Portland’s chip music festival, Micropalooza & his popular video game podcast, A Jumps, B Shoots. This is a rare opportunity to witness some great music from across the country, don’t miss it!
On visuals we have beloved scene staple, Batsly Adams, cooking up some new eye candy for this show! And another fantastic after-party upstairs at The Institute Bar down the block. this time Radlib will DJ MOD files for us!! Also don’t forget, as an 8static patron 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!!!
