Just today, Los Angeles based chiptune artists 8 Bit Weapon and ComputeHer have announced their new multi-month cross country tour. Known as the Disko Apocalypse tour and kicking off this Saturday the 24th in Los Angeles, California at the next UGTL event. From their homebase the duo will be spreading across America to perform in Nevada, New York, Oregon, and more.
Of course as many a chiptune musician, cross country tours are not exactly a trivial matter. To this end 8bw and ComputeHer have created the Disko Apocalypse Tour Kickstarter Fundraiser. To help close the gap on their final tour expenses, they have started taking donations, which at the right levels can get folks exclusive MP3's, T-Shirts, and even copies of their upcoming albums.
Current announced tour dates are after the break, but to keep in the know with the most recent tour additions and updates keep an eye on ComputeHer and 8 Bit Weapon's respective websites. TOUR DATES AND LOCATIONS:
