Local chiptune / prog rock band Cheap Dinosaurs will contribute a live score to a screening of 1982 new wave film Liquid Sky at the closing events of this month’s Cinedelphia Film Festival. Hosted at PhilaMOCA, the screening will also feature a rare appearance by Liquid Sky director Slava Tsukerman, who will provide an introduction to the film and participate in a Q&A afterwards. Tickets and information for the event can be found here. Below, watch a video of Cheap Dinosaurs’ Liquid Sky-themed Tuesday Tune-Out set and a trailer for the movie.
Continuing their month of Tuesday Tune-Outs, 8static presents Cheap Dinosaurs tonight at PhilaMOCA. The local chiptune / rock band will perform a set of their “wall of sound” productions before screening the 1982 independent sci-fi film Liquid Sky. Like their Tuesday Tune-Out predecessor Chipocrite, Cheap Dinosaurs recently performed at Mag Fest in NYC where they participated in a showcase of chiptune music makers. Admission for tonight’s all-ages event is a suggested $5 donation at the door; more information can be found here. Watch a live video of Cheap Dinosaurs performing at PhilaMOCA from April 2011 below.
