I Can't Believe I Missed This!Posted: October 22, 2005
Some call it 8-bit punk. Some call it blip-pop. Enough with the name games! How about listening to it? Here’s a little taste of the type of music you’ll hear at tonight’s 8-bit music concert to be held in NYC.
Musicians including David Sugar (UK), Receptors (US), Hey Kid Nice Robot (US), M-.-N (BE), Glomag (US), Bubblyfish (US), Omac (US), Nullsleep (US) and Bit Shifter (US) will be performing a high-volume concert performed on Gameboys, NES, Atari 2600 and other 8-bit video game systems.
We attended a mini concert given by Nullsleep and Bit Shifter several years ago in NYC. The two managed to coaxe a mind-expanding amalgamation of danceable electronica out of hacked Game Boy hardware. It was impressive, and the blips, bleeps and bloops pluck at those deeply buried emotional strings deep in the heart of any gamer that played the NES as a kid.
