As a thank you, TMT is now offering you the chance to go check out Blip Festival 2008, which is set to take place this week, December 4-7, at Brooklyn's The Bell House. The four-day event features nearly 40 musicians and artists. These dudes must know a thing or two about computers and video games, as this crazy fest is designed to celebrate the chipmusic phenomenon. We can't offer you free tickets or anything, but we're at the very least telling you about it. Besides, it's only $15/day.
