Those masters of 8-bit music MegaByte will be bringing their nostalgic low-tech styling to Gulliver’s on Sunday, with Swedish chipmusic powerhouse and Game Boy enthusiast nordloef (pictured) headlining. His live shows have been described as a mixture of a one-man punk show and a sweaty DJ set – brought to you through the majesty of the green-screened, handheld, Nintendo console. Yes, instead of decks, nordloef uses two original Game Boys on ‘live’ mode, rearranging the songs on the spot. It’s a show that must be seen and heard to be believed. Support comes from some of the North West’s finest chipmusicians for this night of musical innovation and retro gaming.

Sun 10 Feb, Gulliver’s, 109 Oldham Street, M4 1LW, 7pm, £4,
