Bit Brigade, Cheap Dinosaurs (Philly)
1120 Manhattan Avenue
Brooklyn, NY, 11222
This event is 21 and over
When was the last time you attended a live music performance with a genuine element of risk involved? And no, going to a Gwar show with a white t-shirt on doesn't count. When Bit Brigade takes the stage your mind will frantically oscillate between "Oh! Agh!! Please don't die!!" and "YES! He's doing it!!" Combining the dread and daring of a live video game speed run with the spot-on technique of a live band covering the musical accompaniment to everything you're seeing on-screen in real time, Bit Brigade will have you swinging between the two mediums. From thrashing about to live renditions of your favorite stage themes, fingers yearning to the sky in a rock 'n roll parody of sea anemones seeming to silently plead, "Please, feed us more fretboard pyrotechnics!," to being locked in stock-still rapture as the infallible maestro of the d-pad, Noah McCarthy, takes on the final boss and risks his video game life under the threat of intense peer scorn (or the reward of night-long glory and a credits score). No matter the outcome, Bit Brigade must play on until the deed is done - which it always is - on the first (and last) try. Once Noah's NES buzzes on, there's no turning back." - Metalhead Mike of The Shizz, summer 2011
Cheap Dinosaurs (Philly)
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, and Kevin from Close to Good.
