Eight Bit Disaster, D&D Sluggers, The Nerdlucks, The ThoughtCriminals 

When: Sat., Aug. 17, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5

Chiptunes—the video-game-based musical genre celebrated at this mini-fest—is at its most exciting in the hands of acts such as Thoughtcriminals: "Throw your light guns up," the Charlotte emcees spit in the chorus to "Punch, Up." Sure, their brand of chip-hop is geeky, but it also has teeth, carrying both the bleep and bloop of early-'90s console games and the pugilism of early-'90s rap. As they put it, "If it's too loud/ Then you're in the wrong crowd." Wilmington's D&D Sluggers maximize all eight bits in their own brand of pixelated yet smooth pop. If you like the stuff, this bill's loaded. —Corbie Hill
