With the possible exception of Anamanaguchi, the popularity of modern chip music (which is, for the uninitiated, an esoteric offshoot of electronic music created using hardware from old 8-bit videogame consoles) is confined to a small niche of diehards. Otherwise, it's severely underrepresented, which is understandable—a lot of it is unsurprisingly inaccessible—but unfortunate, as many of the genre's practitioners are incredibly talented composers who happen to be working in an extremely nerdy medium. The organizers of DataPort, an upstart chip-centric showcase that's set to occur monthly at the Alhambra, intend to change that. This month's show features performances from New York artist Rhinostrich, Canadian Gameboy-pop specialist Bryface, and Temple Maps. MORGAN TROPER
