Denver's Warlock Pincher frontman, flap-jack freakazoid, bizarre-hoarder, atomic-clock-calibrator, and all around authority on all things absurd- Andrew Novick will MC Saturday night's costume contest with the inexplicably appropriate, intergalactic musical stormtroopers ITCHY-O headlining and Men in Burka with DJ Babyshoe warming up the cosmic glow.
"A throbbing 32-piece band of masked chaos invites you to dissolve the performer/audience divide and melt into the bedlam, that is the disorienting power of itchy-O. The itchy-O Marching Band (IOMB) is a Denver-based percussion-centered electronic marching band. itchy-O brings a sophisticatedly savage sound and the sheer ecstasy of instruments untethered and running free. With a driving drum corps battery, Taiko drummers, an arsenal of electronics including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders, and many other special devices, the IOMB completely engulfs and immerses an audience from every angle in a pounding electric bog of music, ephemera and spectacle. The masked and hive-minded IOMB is waging war on predictable mediocrity with their blind-siding-style performances which feature an artfully hazardous Chinese lion, a troupe of sensuous dancing provocateurs, fog, strobes, sequins, sweat and fury. Itchy-O has played withDavid ByrneandSt. Vincent'sband, performed at Riot Festwith Iggy Pop, Matt & Kim, Naked Raygun, and Public Enemy.They've opened forDEVO, The Melvins, March Fourth, the Extra Action Marching Band, the Warlock Pinchers, headlined and sold-out many other shows.Itchy-O hasbeen featured on Colorado Public Radio, performed for the Biennial of the Americas Kick-off Party, ScoutMob's Halloween Bash in Atlanta, Westword's Artopia, conferences such as Adobe's Effective UI, and toured the US three years in a row."
