Join ITCHY-O and celebrate Independence Day OUTSIDE under the best light show in the city!!!

Itchy-O
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 with David Byrne and St. Vincent’s band, performed at Riot Fest with Iggy Pop, Matt & Kim, Naked Raygun, and Public Enemy. They’ve opened for DEVO, Beats Antique, The Melvins, March Fourth, the Extra Action Marching Band, the Warlock Pinchers, headlined and sold-out many other shows. Itchy-O has been 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.

Dirty Few
“With the constant influx of great new bands that flood the scene every year, it’s tough to pick the best of them. But the Dirty Few made that task infinitely easier this year. The trio makes the kind of fun, no-frills, boisterous, beer-can-foisting rock that you thought didn’t exist anymore. The bouncy bombast could inspire even the most bashful of wallflowers to spring up and raise their fists without a moment’s hesitation. And while the music itself is 100 percent pure exuberance, the group’s live shows are even more energetic and engaging. Get Loose Have Fun is the act’s debut album title — and motto — but it also describes the attitude adjustment you’ll experience after a dose of the Dirty Few.” Westword

RUMTUM
Electronic producer and instrumental enthusiast John Hastings {{{aka}}} RUMTUM has a unique approach to crafting his melodic melodies. May it be his love for native spirits or even sea life, the natural world plays the biggest part in the dynamics of his writing. From a young age his obsession for mixers and knobs grew into a passion for recording with found objects and handmade instruments. While learning drums provided the musical foundation to understand bass and guitar, an amazement of synthesizer and explorations into field recordings continues to inspire his craft.

DJ babyshoe
babyshoe (Eric Talledo) cut his teeth listening to vinyl, dreaming about worlds built around the power of music and the people producing it. Ever evolving with his three decade long love affair with music, babyshoe has more recently settled into his location in Denver; maximizing musical opportunities within this lush community to connect them to a pure, direct line to the underground culture of music that fuels him.

Starting in 2012, “babyshoe presents” launched, which has become a series of events showcasing local talents in the electronic underground scene. This in turn led to a regular monthly guest spot in birdy. magazine, a new local publication that features the best in local culture and art. In April 2013 babyshoe co-founded shoeboxx recordings with musical partner Real Cosby, which currently holds 10 producers on the roster from various locations around the world. September 2013 the MOCD music blog broke ground, which is a daily publication of sound collections co-founded by babyshoe and other meticulous friends of music.
