Two HUGE concerts this weekend as well. We’ll start off in New York, New York where the MASSIVE
is being held from November 30th-December 3rd. We’ll let them explain.
“THE TANK and 8BITPEOPLES are pleased to present the Blip Festival, a four-day celebration of over 30 international artists exploring the untapped potential of low-bit videogame consoles and home computers used as creative tools. Familiar devices are pushed in new directions with startling results — Nintendo Entertainment Systems and Game Boys roaring with futuristic floor-stomping rhythms and fist-waving melody, art-damaged Sega hardware generating fluctuating and abstracted video patterns — and that's only the beginning. An exploration of the chiptune idiom and its close relatives, the Blip Festival is the biggest and most comprehensive event in the history of the form, and will include daily workshops, art installations, and nightly music performances boasting an international roster larger and more far-reaching than any previous event of its kind. Small sounds at large scales pushed to the limit at high volumes — the Blip Festival is an unprecedented event that is not to be missed.” -
The list of performers must be seen to be believed. So if you are in New York DO NOT MISS IT. Also, if you are there let us know how it went (especially with plenty of footage and photos!)
The next big concert is happening over here on the west coast in Los Angeles, CA.
is throwing a big show of their own this Saturday, December 2nd. A good amount of electronic and VG inspired musicians will be in attendance including good pal
will also be in attendance at the Data Age show so we hope to see you there!
One more thing. The Minibosses are having an eBay auction which includes a cornucopia of goods to benefit Child’s Play. The bid is pretty high right now but it is all for the children so give it a look. And of course donate what you can to Child’s Play!
