Super I am 8 Bit holds high the esteem for games past, honoring these forefathers of the power-up. And this year they're going big. Five times bigger than their inaugral event in 2005, this year's show will feature an homage to the 30th anniversary of Galaga featuring the world's largest acade cabinet and over 100 artist paying tribute to their favorite gaming experiences from the halcyon days of 1980's gaming.

I'm in as long as there's no mention of the 2600 Pac•Man.

True to my paper loving bones, I have to mention the inclusion of Matt Hawkin's killer piece honoring "Bentley" from Atari's Crystal Castles. The opening went down on August 11, but the show runs through September 10th at The Gallery in Los Angeles. So if you happen to find yourself in the city of angels, stop on by and get your extra man on missle command.

Details HERE (official site) and HERE (Matt Hawkins).
