While not as big as New York City's Blip Fest, Tokyo's Fami-Mode is still a must-attend event for micromusic fans in the area, as it gathers some of the country's top chip talent for a big concert and dance party that kicks off at midnight and doesn't end until 5AM.

Organized by Satoshi Sakagami, owner of retro gaming and culture shop Meteor, Fami-Mode 2010 will return to the Star Pine's Cafe in Kichijouji, Tokyo this Saturday. The scheduled chip acts include several artists we've featured here before: Omodaka, Kplecraft, Consumers, and Sexy-Synthesizer.

In between each live performance, several DJs are slated to spin a set: DJ Smallest, DJ Sakagami (Satoshi), DJ PMKFA, and DJ Masskutt Daitouryou. There will also be some sort of Famicom competition and shops (e.g. The King Of Games, Takara Tomy Arts) trying to separate attendees from their money.

The above video shows clips of performances from last year's Fami-Mode performances. After the break, I've included another video with more highlights from Fami-Mode 2009 as well as Fami-Mode 2010's show poster:
