See Ya, GDC. Hello, PAX East



I知 still not fully recovered from all of the rad stuff that went on last week at GDC in San Francisco (see some of my coverage here, here and here), but nevertheless, I知 headed to Boston this weekend for PAX East.

The chip showcase we had there last year was pretty legit, but this year it痴 going into overdrive: Local allies Boston8bit have teamed up with MAGFest to organize a 3-part chip showcase featuring 15 performers and 3 visual artists to the PAX East Jamspace on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

I値l be giving a presentation on the history of chip music Saturday morning at 10 AM in the Jamspace, then performing alongside AdamGetsAwesome, Danimal Cannon, Bright Primate and Smiletron from 11 - 2 PM.

I値l be bringing some merch with me too: Micro-CD痴 (the same ones I premiered at PAX Prime - only a couple left) and brand-new 1 Zen Albatross buttons, brought to you thanks to the hard work of Jenn DLV:



Other must-see acts like NY chiptune forebears Bit Shifter and Glomag will also be performing throughout the weekend. And if you're still around on Sunday, definitely don't miss casio/gameboy duo The Shortsleeves, who are on tour this month.

Here's the full lineup:
