Electric Philly 2.0 continues in Philly on September 19th. This one-of-a-kind event combines an Open Mic for LIVE electronic musicians, indie developers, and a retro gaming lounge!
Located in Northern Liberties @Devnuts, the space boasts a stage, large screen TVs, projected visuals, and a collection of classic games by N3rd St Gamers to enjoy. After the successful launch in August, the event will continue monthly, each time having a different theme. Last month’s event – Altered Bass – was a celebration of the sidescrolling beatemup games like Final Fight, Double Dragon, and Streets of Rage.
This month, the theme is NINJAS. There will be obvious appearances by games like Shinobi and some Ninja Gaiden speedruns, but also some lesser known games like Ninja Baseball Batman and Ninja Warriors. The night will feature some experimental and synthastic acts for open mic, followed by a full set from Philly’s own NML STYL!
In addition, 8static will be on hand to promote their 8STATIC FEST next month and will be selling advanced tickets. Please leave your kitana swords at home, but feel free to bring your ninja reflexes and come hang out. Doors open at 7pm, music starts at 8pm. It’s 21+ and $10.
