CONTEST – Anamanaguchi @ Wrongbar – January 21, 2012
What: New York-based, NES-powered chiptune champions probably best known for providing the 8-bit score to Scott Pilgrim Vs The World and for knowing most Game Genie codes off by heart.
Why: Their debut album Dawn Metropolis came out back in 2009, but doesn’t seem to be available to buy anywhere. They’re going to tour anyways.
When: Saturday, January 21, 2012
Where: Wrongbar in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Extreme Animals and Moon King open up.
How: Tickets for the show are $10 in advance but courtesy of Embrace, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Anamanaguchi” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, January 16.
What else: The Nintendo aesthetic makes fun videos easy; a couple are linked below, more are available over at www.dawnmetropolis.com.
