WFMU @ Blip Festival 2k9
WFMU will be webcasting this year's edition of the amazing BLIP FESTIVAL in its entirety!
Three days of pixelated madness LIVE from The Bell House in Brooklyn: Trash-bin symphonies and ray-chasing pixel pushers rule at the music and arts festival on December 17th, 18th, and 19th.
Entering its fourth year of celebrating the best and brightest from the realm of chipmusic and its related disciplines, the festival showcases the use of the former heavyweights of computing such as the Commodore 64 and Amiga, the Atari ST and 2600, and the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy to create arresting music and visual art.

Thursday 12/17 8pm - 1:30am
Friday 12/18 8pm - 1:30am
