The date’s also drawing nearer for my much anticipated SXSW related DataPopParty, bringing a strong lineup of 8bitpeoples chiptune artists to Austin for a March 18th show, and local theater chain Alamo Drafthouse has just revealed an exclusive art print and T-shirt for the show from Lamour Supreme.
Lamour’s most commonly known for his kaiju (ie. beautifully grotesque Japanese movie monster-inspired design) vinyl toys, which you can spy via his flickr, and he’s certainly brought that same inspiration to the Datapop’s design.
I caught the Austin local screening of 2 Player Production’s chiptune documentary Reformat the Planet last night (was anyone else there?), with producer Paul Levering in attendance — they’re helping to organize DataPop, and I’ll be doing my damndest to bring footage/coverage of the show to the site next week.
Alamo’s put up both the shirt and the print for sale via MondoTees. As a reminder, entrance is free to the DataPop show itself, which will be held inside the abandoned Salvation Army by the South Lamar Alamo.
