IT HAS BEGUN

LET IT NEVER END

Hey Facundo, thanks for starting this.

As facundo has correctly said, after party / auxiliary gigs are already in the planning stages. The usual suspects are involved, including myself and Ian Cofre. The Cheese and Beer crew are clearly also hard at work and I wouldn't be surprised if i/O is scheming away. The important thing is that we are coordinating our plans carefully so as not to fuck anything up. And we all have wonderful ideas and surprises.

I can only speak for myself here but I'd appreciate it if people didn't immediately bombard me with emails asking to play. The annual late-night dance party is very specifically curated and, if you know me and Ian, you know that we usually invite people who have played Blip Festivals in the past and have made our legs sore from dancing.

Other gigs/open mics/ ice cream socials are being planned and I'm only directly involved in one of them, which has a very strict specific criteria for performers. We'll contact YOU if you fit that ONE criteria. Feel free to guess but I ain't saying another word. Except this: "sex."

Hey guys, can we have an awesome post-Blip at Public Assembly again? Or Santos Party House? I love Santos.
I also loved the Pianos matinée. I suspect cheap as fuck supersized frozen margaritas had something to do with it, though.

I am also partial to any place that won't give me a hard time letting me in/drink with my yy/mm/dd frenchie ID. Yes, I am looking at you, Bell House gorilla goons.

epic

Trust the New York City chip promoter crews like you would a harmless cuddly bunny that also happens to be an expert professor of booking shows. We know what we're doing and we won't let you down.

Also - someone (not me) should rent a diner for a massive post-blip pancake BRKFST.

Or just one giant pancake

edit: FUCK, this is a giant pizza! Damn it!!

Actually, BRQFST stands for Baroque Festival. It's a celebration of chiptune...you guessed it... BAROQUE MUUUUUUSIIIIIICCCCCC!

everyone is eating pancakes, be it by choice or consequence

BRQFST is what i celebrate after a rough night of gambling














Kids, either shut the fuck up or post more pictures of giant pizzas

Or, talk about shows

i think i'm gonna be there this time

You don't have to organise a party specifically for me to play - but I appreciate it, all the same.
