Blip Festival 2009 kicks off tonight, and while most of us are miles and miles away from New York City and unable to attend, thanks to modern technology and the endless wonders of the internet, that doesn't mean we can't watch our favorite micromusicians perform at one of the year's biggest chiptune events.

Radio station WFMU (91.1 in Jersey City) will host a live webstream from the three-day concert this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Leading up to Blip Festival, WFMU has brought in several slated acts like Patric Catani and Je Deviens DJ En Trois Jour to play songs live on their Sound and Safe program. You can listen to those performances here.

For those of you actually attending the event, make sure to stop by at "Post Your Blips" section of the official Blip Festival 2009 site to share your pictures, videos, and impressions.
