SHIT! luke you're totally right. Here goes!!!!! IM NOT TOO LATE!!!!

face book it HERE: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=1 … amp;ref=mf

After a brief tour of the elite nerd music circuit, with shows at Mass
Art, Pulsewave in NYC, and the world famous PAX: Penny Arcade Expo, Boston 8-Bit is BACK in Boston for a 9th iteration of its geeky, dancey, chiptune music concert series for the masses, this time at Wonder Bar in Allston MA. Expect mind-bending light shows rampant glow-sticks, space helmets and stage-diving from computer science majors; but above all, expect to party like it 2999 to the retro-future sounds of the top acts in video game dance music.

Details:
Boston8Bit Presents:
CHIPTUNE 9 at Wonderbar's Music Ecology!!
Tuesday July 13th
Doors 9pm, show 10pm-2am
$5, 21+

Performers:
Bright Primate: http://brightprimate.tk/
Former Boston rock scene alum, Lydia Marsala and James Therrien (Fugitive Kind), combine forces for a new take on live electronic music. Using a unique blend of live vocals, acoustic instruments, gameboys and vintage electronics, Br1ght Pr1mate explores, bends and completely ignores the boundaries of Chiptune, Pop, Art, Electro, Rock, Jazz and Soul for a futuristic fusion that would be right at home on your favorite space ship.

Active Knowledge: http://www.activeknowledgemusic.com/
"It's not so much the preservation of youth, as the celebration of it," says Chris Mahoney, better known in creative circles as Active Knowledge. Firing notes through an original Nintendo Entertainment System, the Active Knowledge mixes vintage video game sounds with synchronized glitchy, spastic visuals. The idea is unadulterated fun, with a focus on the unadult. Active Knowledge’s debut album “Pyramid Neon” is available to download for free on his site.

Zen Albatross: http://www.myspace.com/zenalbatrossmusic
Zen Albatross is a chipmusician, artist and blogger from Brooklyn, NY who likes to write about art, airships, bleeps, bloops and other swell things. His music is amazing.

Knife City: http://futuredadsociety.tumblr.com/
Luke Silias is the brains and chip brawn behind legendary 8-Bit rock band Anamanaguci. His solo excursions as Knife City are hard-hitting and impossible to ignore chip-house dance freak-out.

Facundo: http://www.myspace.com/facundoloop
Proud founder of the DIF netlabel, co-founder of Cheese’N’Beer, Presidential candidate of #facundocon, with his free time, facundo uses craft beer to make music on two gameboys. facundo can usually be found ‘supping and/or getting facundo‘d with fellow New York friends. Make sure to download his latest release on superbutton.net titled “everything you loved, i destroyed”.

I kind of want to move to your city now. There were more people at this show (on a Tuesday) than like, the last 2 or 3 NYC shows I've been to combined.

See Also: Really good beer. Lots of it.
See Also: Girls that actually go to chip shows.

How much of this, if any, was a hallucination derived from my 50+ hours of sleep deprivation?
