Sorry if it seems like I haven't updated the news on this page in a while. It certainly wasn't for a lack of things to talk about — I just wanted to keep the Lebowski announcement at the top. But with a slew of upcoming shows to announce, I figured it was time to highlight some of this exciting stuff! (And in case you wanted to hear it anyway, I did keep the Lebowski player at the top... See what I did there?!)
All dates, addresses and such can be found in the sidebar to the right on this page!
Anyway, it's hard to say what's biggest, but the first thing I want to highlight is the 8static Festival, which is going to be an epic, three-day marathon celebrating 8static's fifth anniversary as Philly's monthly chiptune concert and all-around showcase of awesomeness. The line-up is already legendary, featuring an impressive variety of rare performers, retirees returning to the stage, and timeless favorites — and I am beyond honored to be a part of it. Too many amazing artists to mention! It's going to be a memorable and spectacular event either way, but if you have the means and would like to contribute to making it even more super special, please donate to our Kickstarter!! As of this posting, we're almost there, but we still need your help. Thanx!!!
In other news, conventions, conventions, conventions!! In just a few weeks, I'll be doing the old "panel plus performance" thing at RVACON, a new event in Richmond, VA, shaping up to be a pretty sweet celebration of nerd-dom and related nerdiness. And I'm thrilled to announce that I'll again be a part of this year's chiptune lineup at MAGFest 12, the renowned weekend-long video game and music party in National Harbor, MD. I promise surprises and amazingness for all who attend! Seriously cannot wait. Stay tuned for more details!
Finally, but certainly no less significantly, I also seriously cannot wait to open for Peelander-Z at Strange Matter in Richmond. Anyone who was at the show I played there with Anamanaguchi in July knows just how fantastic this place is, and how great that show was, so let's do it again! Get your tickets in advance here!
And in other news, NEW MUSIC. I promise you I've got totally fresh original stuff in the works, and I expect to have it to you very very soon. Just finishing up some Game Boy programming, then gotta record it all.. It's gonna sound great, I promise. STAY TUNED for that, and in the meantime, see you at one/some/ALL of these shows!
