Sound Bytes Round Two

Friday, November 28, 2008 1
Friday 21/11 saw SoundBytes Round @ hit Softbelly Bar in Little Bourke St, for another night of chiptune mayhem.

The night started early with people wandering in to play Mario Kart and a plethora of old school gaming titles on MAIM boxes while they soaked up Softbellys retro feel in their exceptionally comfy couches.
Once it hit 9 o'clock we were flooded with arrivals to see MC Talkshow Boy take the mic for a set all of his own, getting the party well and truly started with his brilliant lyrics and hiphop beats.
Next up, fresh from his flight from not so sunny Brisnbane (not so sunny at the moment anyway!) we had Dot.AY hit the stage with his Gameboy, guitar hero and DDR dance mat in tow. AYs, breakcore influenced style rocked the crowd with some heavier noise than patrons of the last gig would remember and the crowd loved it, especially being able to interact with the DDR mat!
Last but not least, our stylishly attired hero (see pics), 10K Free Men & their Families returned to Sound Bytes with his own special brand of insanity, table dancing and chiptune beats. Despite playing about half a dozen variations on Happy Birthday for the birthday boy in the house, the crowd still requested an encore which gave us an opportunity to enjoy more of the show.
All in all, despite a couple off issues with the sound (dancing feet and cables do not mix boys and girls) and the bass being 'too loud' for the venue (which is almost a source of pride for all concerned) the night was a big success with a happy crowd and lots of curious onlookers very interested in finding out what was going on from the front room.
Next gig is probably early '09 - stay tuned to for more details as they come to hand.
Many thanks to Tom, Adrian, Alex, Maddy, the slurry crew and everyone who made the night a success.

The countdown is on

Only 6 more days to go until Sound Bytes returns for round 2.

We'll be kicking the night off from 6pm with some gaming fun in the back room and the MAME box and nintendo on hand as well as the Slurry Beats Collective spinning tunes to get the night started.

Later on the live noise kicks in and we take over the whole venue with 10K, dot.AY and Talkshow Boy on hand and guaranteed to get you moving.

Flyers have been distributed around town (tip - check out our friends at Dungeon Crawl if you want to lay your hands on one) so to get in for just $7 make sure you grab one while you can.

Have a great week!
