Adventure is 24 year-old North Carolina native and recent Baltimore transplant Benny Boeldt. His ultra-melodic synth compositions pull from his earliest exposure to the 8-bit soundtracks of the Sega Genesis video game catalog. But it's not just retro video game music. Mix in the kitschy Moogy sound of Hot Butter's "Popcorn", the saturated disco-theatrics of late seventies electro-pop acts like Sparks and Yellow Magic Orchestra, and a penchant for Eastern European diminished scales and you've come pretty close to Adventure's accelerated baroque sound. Adventure is an advanced, dance-floor friendly take on the music of early video gaming. Let the epic quest for the master sword begin!
Tight Bros Network is proud to introduce you to Atlanta's hairtastic, Chris Calzone, AKA CCIVORY. This kid rocks a Gameboy while covering Daft Punk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" and Michael Sembello's "Shes' a Maniac" from the iconic eighties film Flashdance during his live sets. His performances are similar to that of a Girl Talk show but he sings on occasion and we are excited to have him booked at Eyedrum with new Carpark Records recording artist Adventure on Sunday August 31 beginning at 8pm with admission only $5. This event is all ages.
