Pulsewave: Riffs N' Chips

Come out of the cold and enjoy the sweet riffs and melodic chips of some of chipmusic's coolest rockers at this month's Pulsewave. Pulsewave is the US's longest running show dedicated to exploring the sights and sounds of vintage game consoles and computers.

$10 admission & ALL AGES

Animal Style is an audio visual chip music project by Joey Mariano started around 2001.

Sadnes is an exploration of self and a coming to terms with prior occurences. A blissful mixture of 90's grunge backed by a Nintendo Entertainment System. His sound will make you wish ripped jeans and messy hair were back in style. It’s time to hate your parents.

Your life will be greatly enhanced once you attend a Danimal Cannon show. He's like a government stimulus check that gives you ice cream sandwiches made out of guitar solos. Can you really afford to pass that up? Didn't think so.

Andrew Reitano [Batsly Adams] is an electrical engineer / programmer / visualist based in NY. He creates visuals using a combination of two Sega Genesis consoles and a hand-built video synth circuit. His style involves pushing the limits of the Sega video processor (VDP), utilizing hardware tricks to produce images beyond the expected capability of the system

We will be having an open mic this month! Come show us what you've made/written! Every open mic spot has a 5 minute limit, which includes set-up and tear-down. Open mic sign-ups are first-come, first-serve so get there at door time if you want a spot. Don't be shy, come out and play!
