Denver-based Itchy-O is a 32-piece, percussion-centered, electronic marching band accompanied by a taiko drumming troupe, dancing apparitions and their cantankerous Chinese lion. Jesus Garcia of SF Weekly described Itchy-O as “progeny of Crash Worship and Savage Republic… a sensory overload, full mind/body immersion, coming together in ecstatic ritual… a 21st century drum circle, where cyborg bulls are slaughtered on the altar of Mystery Science Theater 3000.” With a driving drum corp complemented by an arsenal of special surround sound effects units including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders, and several other hand-held electronic devices, Itchy-O completely engulfs and immerses an audience from every angle in an electric bog of music, ephemera and spectacle.
About Taiko Society:
Out of Monument Colorado these furious Taiko drummers have joined forces with itchy-O on several occasions over the last two years and will be performing again with itchy-O for this special occasion. Just another reason not to miss this one!

About Men in Burka:
Kamran Khan, Strange Powers and Mario Zoots are Men In Burka. An experimental electronic act, Men in Burka blends traditional Middle Eastern aesthetics, rhythm-heavy beats and a melange of samples to create a sound that crosses cultural boundaries and redefines dance music. The band got its start just as Khan’s previous project with Mario Zoots and Kristy Fenton, Modern Witch, was becoming less active. Up to that point, Khan, the son of an American woman and a Pakistani man, hadn’t had the chance to fully express his own mixed-culture reality. As his involvement with Modern Witch was winding down, he began writing music that was reflective of his background. He shared it with Zoots and Strange Powers, his longtime musical collaborators and fans of Kahn’s ’90s-era hip-hop crew, Future Reference. The three formed Men in Burka in September 2011.
Since their first release, the group has gone on to share stages with Balkan Beat Box, Chelsea Wolfe, SSION, Pictureplane, Tanlines, oOoOO and many others. In 2012, Men in Burka (MIB) played over 30 shows, including the two biggest Denver music festivals (Underground Music Showcase and the Westword Music Showcase) and several shows at SXSW, and self-released a follow up album titled War / Magic. In 2013, MIB played many shows including the Artopia festival, the Underground Music Showcase, and in support of Strange Famous Records artist B. Dolan, and, again, for Balkan Beat Box.
