A First Look at Tonight's Krewe of Vaporwave Parade

Last month, members of the Virtual Krewe of Vaporwave announced their 2017 parade at My Spilt Milk as krewe members selected some of their favorite instances of vaporwave music, videos, and websites. The krewe’s second annual parade rolls tonight at 8 p.m., and it will visible as part of a video game-style interface that you can download at KreweOfVaporwave.com.
