8STATIC

8static is Philadelphia's premier chiptune concert and 8-bit video party. The event was originally founded by several local artists including Dino and Joey of Cheap Dinosaurs.

For more than five years, 8static has provided a venue for chip musicians to hold performances featuring the best of the best in the local and global scenes, as well as to meet up, trade composing secrets, exchange ideas and more. In 2013, 8static launched its online record label to help artists share their music on an even larger scale.

BIO:


Cheap Dinosaurs is a Psychedelic Prog Rock Band. Based out of Philadelphia and led by ex-Chromelodeon leader Dino Lionetti, Cheap Dinosaurs' audio-visual experience combines pop melodies with jagged rusty rhythms, circuit bent sounds and dirty synthesizer leads. "Hot Plate" won True Chip Till Death's best chip track of the year in 2010, and NPR's Peter Crimmins recently noted that "Cheap Dinosaurs is made up of giants in the local chip music scene." An accurate deduction with an all star lineup consisting of Animal Style, Chipocrite, Danny Tarng from Store Cats, and Kevin from Close to Good.
