LIVE CHIP MUSIC + VISUALS | INDIE GAMES | OPEN MIC | MORE
Vancouver’s very own chiptune-focused concert series is back for 2020! Right out of the gate, we’ve got a fantastic lineup for you.
BTW Here’s a spicy video showing what to expect at one of our shows: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ec1JSsFDLiI
For this show we’re featuring a variety of acts that incorporate chip sounds into a wider palette of modern genres: First we’re bringing in HYPER POTIONS from California, who effortlessly combine EDM / chiptune / anime / future bass influences all at once! Seattle’s own GRAZ returns to us, fresh off his new release NEXT LEVEL via Tiny Waves’ label – he’ll be unleashing his trademark sound that melds Game Boy songwriting techniques with high-energy rave and happy hardcore.
Our selection of local artists have rocked the house at our previous shows’ Open Mic sessions! We’re delighted to have PLUSOL follow up with a full set of his glitchy and glassy future bass work – cerebral and expansive all at once. SCHNÜDLBUG brings his arsenal of vogue homemade minimal deep house using a variety of grooveboxes and small gadgets! Honk if you like bass!!
As usual, we’ll start with an OPEN MIC SESSION where up-and-comers can pass the aux cord around and share the music they’ve been working on with the crowd! Sign up down below!

/// ♿️ ACCESSIBILITY INFO
The Fox Theatre is a mostly, but not completely, accessible venue. We’ll be doing our best, however we regret we’re limited by what the venue can provide. The venue is primarily one floor with no steps up/down, allowing a wheelchair user to go from the entrance right up to the stage. The stage is approximately waist-high, which should allow a person in a wheelchair to see clearly from up front. There’s a small upstairs at the back, which is unfortunately only accessible by stairs, and the seating & game demo areas are using the venue’s hi-top tables. We do not currently have lower tables available, as we’re already using the only ones the venue has for merch.
There are two separate bathrooms with small stalls (one with urinals) on either side of the lobby; They will be marked to welcome all genders during our events. There is a larger accessible washroom inside the venue, across from the bar, but the venue does require use of a key that can be obtained at the bar.
We’ll be working with door staff to provide priority entry for any ticket holders with mobility issues.
If you have additional concerns about accessibility or require seating to be reserved for you, please contact Andrew from VCS directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you out ASAP!
