I have a few updates I would like to share with you! First of all news on the Boston 8bit and Frenz compilation!
So far we have a killer lineup of local and national acts lined up for the album. Artists include Coda, up and coming (T-T)b, 8bit bEtty, Rainbowdragoneyes and more! It’s not too late for you to get in on the fun though, and here’s how!
All you have to do is provide two tracks, one new and one older one. Your new track can be a remix, cover or anything as long as it hasn’t been released yet. The new track must remain exclusive to the album for 3 months. After which you can do what you see fit with it.
The deadline has obviously been pushed back due to more and more artists wanting to be a part of it. Wanting each and every song to be as amazing as possible, I’ve provided ample time for all artists involved to create music. Another reason for the push back is I didn’t want to have to start a new volume right away due to late submit ions. However the final deadline will be February 1st. No more pushing back, no more delays. If you want in on the album please submit your tracks NO LATER then February 1st. I hope not only you understand, but you’ll join in on the fun!
If you would like to submit at track, please email the following to jay at boston8bit dot com:
-Two tracks in .aiff/.wav format, one new, one old. Please send the track as you want it to appear on the album. If you need help with levels or EQ, let me know and I can do a limited amount of mixing for you.
-Please include the following information in a .txt file with your upload:
Name of band/project.
Website Url/Twitter handle/Facebook link
Short bio on your music/project
I’m looking forward to hearing anything you submit, I’m sure it will be awesome! Questions, comments or tracks can be sent to jay at boston8bit dot com:
This weekend Boston 8bit will be collaborating with our BFFs at Geekbeatradio.com for a showcase at NorthEast Comic Con.The convention is $15 per day and is located in Wilmington MA. Make sure to stop by and check out all the cool booths and music that will be going on all day!
Also coming up is the return of Crunk Witch at Comicazi in Davis Square. This time Sam Mulligan and Sur5ill will be jointing in on the fun. The show will be $8 advance and $10 at the door. You can buy your tickets here and RSVP on Facebook here!
Also this is not related directly to Boston 8bit, but our friends at the Indie Game Collective will be putting on Bit Fest December 11th from 5pm to midnight at the Aeronaut Brewery in Somerville. It’s free to get in, and there will be plenty of arcade games (stock up on rolls of quarters!), retro game systems, trivia and of course beer. Since it’s in a brewery, you need to be 21+ to get in, but the event is free to enter! We hope to see you there/beat you in a game!
That is all for this installment, but this isn’t all we are working on! We have quite a few ideas we have been working on and hope to share it with you as soon as possible!
