8 Bits of Fun

Whoa. There's going to be a psychedelic folk fest in Burque, dudes, except it's all '80s style complete with an 8-bit musical motif too. Presented by multi-instrumentalist Olivia Komahcheet and also featuring Bud Melvin—a local king of the 8-bit aesthetic—as well as the unique pedal steel and drum chemistry of the Gral Brothers and the humorous, new-pants-wearing humor of singer-songwriter David Bridwell, this singular and sonically challenging event is going down at Tractor Brewing Wells Park on Wednesday, March 20 at 8pm. Think about it this way: it's on hump day, it's totally free for 21+ humans, you get to hear heaps of bleeps, bloops, twangy sounds and loopy effects plus there's beer available for your midday, millennial consumption. What more can you ask for, kidz? Okay. Now you know, so get out and go. (August March)

Olivia Komahcheet is a 20 year old multi-instrumentalist and Artistpreneur. She goes all in when she mixes guitar loops, inspiring the crowd with her musical and artistic abilities.

 If you scour the depths of the internet you can find footage of Bud Melvin mesmerizing the folks at the Tokyo Blip Fest with his 8 Bit Nintendo sounds and banjo. We recommend coming out to Tractor to see him live, it's much safer than the things you can stumble on in the depths of the internet. 

The Gral Brothers are Alex McMahon and Greg Williams. They show such amazing steep pedal and drum chemistry that you'll be convinced that they are in fact genetically related.  

David Bridwell is known for writing songs with a straightforward honest humor. He just released a new song about new pants called New Pants.
