Adventure brings the big time 8-bitness.

March 28, 2011
Wham City strikes its magical electro pop attack again! Baltimore's Adventure is the sweet 8-bit work from the magical mind of Benny Boeldt, a one man instant party. If you were into those old Super Nintendo video games and if you like the synth sounds that often came with them, there's a very good chance you're going to like this.

Adventure creates super melodic pop jams born in influence from a gaming screen and now sprung to life on the stage. Using cheerful synth blips, happy glitches and clicks, and super smooth vocals, Boeldt creates an atmosphere of joyful nostalgia. Well, nostalgia if you're approximately 25-35 in age.

And during their shows, Adventure goes all out; an explosion of bubbles... brightly colored full body suits... crazy lights and swirling projections. In other words, it's kind of like you're watching a live action video game unfold right before your eyes. There won't be any staring at laptops with dazed indifference to the audience at an Adventure show. They make it A SHOW.

Man, I should bust out the old Nintendo again. It probably won't be as fun as Adventure though. And it DEFINITELY won't rock out as much.

Adventure play the Empty Bottle (with Toro y Moi!), on Tuesday, April 5th.
