Ultracade - Adelaide's only 8-bit/Chiptunes event
Here in Adelaide, Australia we have an event which comes around every 3 months. Hosted by the infamous DJ Tr!p, when he delivers 8-bit classics with an awesome taste for the oldies, HE DELIVERS! Hosted at La Boheme, which is a lovely cocktail bar on Grote Street, opposite Coles Supermarket. Folks if you live in Adelaide, don’t think or contemplate attending, instead you MUST attend...
Chiptunes of the week
Crystal Castles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_Castles_(band) ) has been on my mind for a few days now. As they’re coming to the parklife music festival later this year. Granted they had a few controversial incidents in the past with other 8bit artists and copyright, they are still an amazing band, so check them out folks. You won’t be disappointed!!
