In a startling coup, 8bitpeoples invades Austin’s South By Southwest Music Festival, with a label showcase event taking place on Saturday March 15th. Lineup includes Anamanaguchi, Aonami, Bit Shifter, Mark DeNardo / Graffiti Monsters, Bud Melvin, Nullsleep, Tristan Perich, Receptors, and Tree Wave with audio sets, and handheld visuals all night by Voltage Controlled. This is one of two hits in the 8bitpeoples / 2 Player Productions one-two punch, with the world premiere of feature length documentary Reformat The Planet on March 8th as part of the SxSW Film Festival; with subsequent screenings on March 10th and March 13th. BOO YAAA.

crazywanda: big thanks for the assist, much appreciated.

unknown8bit: Nothing chipmusic-related that I'm aware of by way of musical performances (although I could easily be underinformed), but the SxSW Film Festival is featuring a chipmusic documentary called Reformat The Planet, with screenings on the 8th, 10th, and 13th. I've edited this event entry with links to info about those screenings, and the trailer can be seen at: http://www.vimeo.com/665366


hey thanks for the info. i was already planning to see that doc after checking out the trailer a little bit ago (it was actually the catalyst for me going to sxswi in the first place!?) and my interactive badge gets me into the monday screening. i'm just bummed that i can't make the label showcase. hopefully something 8bp will percolate into the sf bay area sometime.


Congrats! Awesome to see 8bitpeoples representing at SXSW - unfortunately I'll be flying back to NYC for BarCampNYC3 before then.


Perhaps the highlight of my SXSW. Thanks!
