HALLOWMASS 2023; ECHOES FROM THE ĀOTH
THIS MYSTIC EVENING WITH ITCHY-O
2023 INTERGALACTIC MASQUERADE
FANTASTIC FEST | FAR OUT
57-member itchy-O invades Austin, Sept. 22 + 23
Guerilla regiment of 57 elite ontological sonic sorcerers converge on a singular spiritual nexus; Fantastic Fest/Far-Out Lounge, Austin, Texas.
The Denver-based neo-tribal ceremonial-art collective has a longstanding love affair with their sister city, headlining the lauded Fantastic Fest film fest for three consecutive years. Now, after a 5-year hiatus, itchy-O descends upon the City of the Violet Crown unrepentantly with MORE: More special effects, more bombast, and now boasting 57 members, more exigent maximalism to confound and rewire Austinites brave enough to take the plunge.
2022 TETRAPOLAR PURIFICATION CEREMONY | FILLMORE AUDITORIUM
INTERGALACTIC MASQUERADE ~ SOLD OUT
Neural necromancers ITCHY-O will unleash a 3-night run of the HALLOWMASS interactive spectacle at Summit Denver, Oct. 29-31.
The annual event and offertory, now in its seventh year, invites attendees to bring artifacts that represent persons, places, institutions, ideas, or anything that has passed through our lives leaving an impact but are no longer here today.
These items thoughtfully adorn an altar-shrine erected and tended to by Denver’s ritual inkslingers, Sol Tribe Tattoo, later to be respectfully burned in a public After-Ceremony (location and timing TBA).
HALLOWMASS returns to its roots as a sacred congregational rite after a pandemic-permuted drive-in series during 2020. This year’s ceremony and celebration will serve as a collective cauterization of a shared wound, closing a heavy previous chapter and providing a glimpse into the next.
The 3-night stand comes off the group’s triumphant return invasion at LEVITT PAVILION, the lauded NOISE BATH isochronic and binaural multisensory brain entrainment series, and two wildly successful drive-in performances last year, SYPHERLOT and HALLOWMASS 2020.
Presented by Live Nation, KGNU, City,O’City, Do303, Ritualcravt, Ratio Beerwerks, Twist & Shout Records, and Youth On Record
$29.99 (advance), $35 (day-of)

Sypherlot: Drive In Radio Bath
In the wake of pandemic-delayed performances, the time is right to launch a cosmogenic conflagration, laying waste to previous notions of concerts in “the new normal” by ushering in a joyful sonic bath of post-apocalyptic unifying magic.
And as in typical itchy-O tradition, expect as hands-on an experience as otherworldly possible in this meta-drive-in: Think Lion Country Safari meets Thunderdome, with interstellar performers interacting with vehicles to turn each car into a dancefloor, all while adhering to CDC-recommended public-health guidelines.
