8-Bit Above December

Geek and Video Game Themed DJ’s playing music through out the night.

CORSET LORE (NY)

Baron Knoxburry takes the stage with a voice, a ukulele, and an arsenal of personal computing power all wielded with vivacious cosmic turboality. The Atari Paddle controlled Commodore VIC-20 booms and scratches against high fidelity and NES electronic compositions.
