CHIP | Rochester Chip show


The pounding drums in "Contra" and the eerie synths in "Metroid" make for captivating sounds in and of themselves, but what happens when they're repurposed by contemporary musicians? Rochester Chip, a monthly series of concerts that hosts artists who repurpose sounds from old video game consoles, is presenting a show headlined by Buffalo's Danimal Cannon and rounded out by Rochester-based chiptune artists Little Paw (who's releasing an EP at this show), B.C. Likes You, and Precious Kindred, and with visuals by SBTHREE, it's tough to imagine a better showcase for chiptune's diverse and passionate fanbase.

Danimal Cannon, Little Paw, B.C. Likes You, Precious Kindred, SBTHREE will perform Friday, February 12, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $8-$10.
