10/30: J.G. THIRLWELL’S XORDOX – composer/producer/performer based in Brooklyn, NY. As well as his own name, he works under many pseudonyms including Manorexia, Foetus, Xordox, Steroid Maximus, Baby Zizanie, Hydroze Plus, Clint Ruin and Wiseblood.
He has released over thirty albums. If there is a common thread to his varied musical styles, it is a dramatic intensity and an evocative, cinematic quality. Thirlwell has also featured as producer, remixer, collaborator or arranger for a wide variety of artists including Karen O, Noveller, Excepter, Zola Jesus, Melvins, Swans, Nine Inch Nails, Lydia Lunch, Coil, Z’s, The The, Simon Hanes, Nick Cave and many more.
JG also creates the musical score for the Emmy-winning FX show Archer, and for Adult Swim / Cartoon Network show The Venture Bros, for which he was nominated for an Annie Award. JG has also created several motion picture scores. He also scored Tony Oursler’s film installation, Imponderable, which was on exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2017.
10/31: WOVENHAND – Songwriter/multi-instrumentalist David Eugene Edwards has always had an unparalleled intensity. Edwards’ rich, billowing and emotive voice is always the driving force of his music, but it’s catapulted by his spellbinding ability to transform instruments that many people might consider mundane relics — be it banjo, accordion, lesser-known folk instruments from around the world, or even an electric guitar — into devices of dark fury and poignant beauty.
From the apocalyptic revivification of antique Americana of Sixteen Horsepower in the 90s to the threadbare balladry of Wovenhand’s early releases, Edwards’ music has maintained its celestial heaviness as it evolved.
Neural necromancers ITCHY-O will unleash a 3-night run of their HALLOWMASS interactive spectacle at Denver’s Summit Hall, Oct. 29-31.
This annual event and offertory, now in its seventh year, invites attendees to bring artifacts representing persons, places, or things that have passed through their lives.
These items thoughtfully adorn an altar-shrine erected and tended to by Denver’s ceremonial 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.
$29.99 (advance), $35 (day-of)
