ITCHY-O DEMOLISHES THE TYPICAL, POLITE STRUCTURE OF MUSICAL EXPERIENCES

Blending music and interactive elements that shatter boundaries between performers and spectators, Itchy-O plays not just to the audience but with and amidst the crowd itself. Audience members become engulfed, barriers are shattered, and the uninitiated often find themselves succumbing to a hotbed of rhythm and hive-minded chaotic bliss.

Propelled by furious drumbeats, Itchy-O crafts a powerful sonic experience that never fails to bring revelers to their feet. These masked musicians along with a slew of other performers and provocateurs incite an ecstatic air of entropy by breaking boundaries and enlisting everyone directly in the supernatural revelry.

Their music and performance elements often involve a collision of cultural references and the blurring of their origins, playing loving homage, and shining a light on the archetypes that bind humanity as whole together.



Based in Denver, Colorado, Itchy-O has brought mystical, sweat-drenched shows to audiences around the world. Tour stops have included the Rialto Theatre in Tucson, Arizona as the closing performers of the All Souls celebrations, the New Parish in Oakland California, and One-Eyed Jacks in New Orleans, Louisiana. Itchy-O has collaborated with the Denver Center for Performing Arts to create a staggering Halloween spectacular that startled OffCenter theatre goers, and has also performed at the world renowned horror-fantasy festival, Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas three years in a row as well as center-piecing Dark Mofo in Tasmania, Australia in 2016.

WITH YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS, ITCHY-O WILL BE ABLE TO FUEL OUR CREATIONS AND DRIVE PAST LIMITS AND BEND BARRIERS EVEN FURTHER



While itchy-O is not limited by creative restrictions and exists on an intergalactic plane beyond space, time, and gravity, earthly fiduciary fetters can be at odds with our out-of-this-world imaginations. These mammoth challenges rooted in the mundane along with the hurdles that go into managing this small army of avant-shamans have the potential to hamper us. With your help, we can continue to take on these real world constraints to ensure our creations are beyond the bounds of known reality.
The support of our dedicated extended Hive will allow itchy-O to create new sonic material, fund new albums, take Itchy-O to the masses with cross country or international tours, and bring visually intoxicating demonstrations of the power of Itchy-O through video creations, and more. Since wild, unpredictability is the soul of the itchy-O experience, exploring new, adventurous avenues for tearing up expectations are always on the table, too!





WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN TAKE THIS RADICAL INCLUSIVITY THAT LIES AT THE BEATING HEART OF THE BEAST TO EXTREME NEW HEIGHTS!

Keep this dying art form alive!

Some things fans may not realize is just how absolutely insane this project costs to run on the money made by just playing shows.

The reality is that this mammoth mysterious 50+ member monster runs in the red much of the year, currently spends $1875 in monthly boring stuffs (without us lifting a finger), and there is not much sustainability in continuing to do so without your help!

VARIOUS EXPENSES INCLUDE:
 
✷ ATTORNEY FEES
✷ BOOKING FEES
✷ BREAKDOWNS... UGH!
✷ DRUM STICKS AND HEADS!
✷ ENGINEERING FEES
✷ EQUIPMENT INSURANCE
✷ GAS
✷ GENERAL LIABILITY
✷ LODGING
✷ MAINTAIN EQUIPMENT
✷ MANAGEMENT FEES
✷ NEW MATERIAL RETREATS
✷ PROPS
✷ RECORDING NEW MATERIAL

✷ VEHICLE INSURANCE
✷ VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
✷ VOLUNTEER INSURANCE
✷ WARDROBE
✷ NEW PRODUCTION
✷ AND FRIGGIN' TONS MORE!

All good and necessary stuff if we want to keep this thing fresh and moving forward, but we really need your help if we want to continue to evolve, induct itchy-O virgins, blow minds and sustain this Promethean dream.

We also have so many amazing perks along with insider and privileged information in store for patrons including a drawing for merch, discounts, live recordings, personal love notes, crash alerts, and more...

If logistics aren't your thing... here's ANOTHER REASON to support itchy-O on a monthly basis:

Recently, a patron shared a deeply moving story of the transformation he witnessed in his son at our 2017 NYE Trifecta shows. A struggling young man found much-needed abandon, acceptance and freedom in the all-encompassing madness of itchy-O. Together we cracked a lifetime of armor built to protect a gentle heart... He walked away stronger.

YES! This is WHY WE DO THIS.
