The ChipMusicChronicle brings us the entire weekend of BlipFestival 2012 in a single YouTube Playlist. The whole show from front-to-back has been captured from a spot in the crowd, it’s the closet thing to being there. My heart breaks a thousand times for missing it this year, but thankfully I spent my time playing awesome music with new friends in Austin. Thank the Chiptune Demi-Gods for The ChipMusic Chronicle.
The ChipMusicCronicle is managed by Emily Feder. Add the Chronicle on Facebook and subscribe on YouTube.

Champions of Chip. There’s more than a good handful of us out there, promoting Chipmusic with every fiber of our being. Because we love it. Because it’s fun. Because it gets us free beer at shows. (WUT?? That’s just as legit a reason!!! ;3 ). This Friday Freakout is dedicated to one of the most, well… dedicated of us that I’m aware of:
This crazy, awesome woman attacks Chipshows armed with nothing but her iPhone, working her way to the front of the stage, throwing elbows, dragon punches, flaming ninja stars, WUTTEHFUKEVAR IT TAKES to get in place to document the entire show in video. And then afterward she uploads them by sets/gigs/artists to her Youtube account for all of the chipworld to see in 720p (that rhymed! heheh ;3 ). She’s more or less providing awesome live video coverage of a substantial portion of the East coast chip scene, which is something that nobody else is doing (one of her very reasons for doing it actually).
Did I mention yet that THE WOMAN IS AWESOME!?!?!
Also, her latest spin on the project is what she’s calling an “Evolution” series. Basically, she’s taking a handful of Chipartists and chronicling their journies (via her live footage) from where she first encountered them to their gigs at Blipfest 2012 this Memorial Day weekend. Currently she has that happening for Chipocrite, Kris Keyser, and Danimal Cannon, but I believe she has plans to do that for a few more before Blipfest rolls around. In other words, STAY TUNED, FOTHERMUCKERS!! ;D Seriously, if you’re a chipfan and haven’t checked out her project by now, this is a great time to do it! =D
And this is the part where I’m just gonna flat out say THANKS A MEGACRAPTON, EM!! There’s more than a few of us out there who LOVE chipmusic but don’t have access to many live shows (due to location, being broke, a combination of the two, etc). And you do a damn good job of bringing some of that to us. SO KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, YA CRAZY BROAD!! ;D We <3 you very much for it!
Henry Homesweet is a British Chiptune artist who currently uses Nanoloop on two Gameboy Advances. I saw him DESTROY EVERYTHING at this years BlipFestival, including ending his set by pouring FourLoko on his head and tearing the cart out of his gameboy.
