Itchy-O invades House of Machines
 
57-member Denver electro-percussion collective joined by Cloak & Dagger's Adam 12 as part of Brumalia 2019 tour

DENVER, CO (September 18th, 2019) - Colorado-based itchy-O is bringing their high-voltage, pyro-percussive mystic performance to celebrants at the House of Machines on Fri. Nov. 22. They're joined by LA DJ-mastermind Adam 12 who will deliver a special Cloak & Dagger set. 

The dark Avant-Rock-Cult itchy-O invades Los Angeles as part of BRUMALIA 2019, their upcoming rendezvous across the Southwest and West Coast.

Named for the Roman winter festival celebrating Saturn/Cronus, Opis, Ceres, and Bacchus, other dates for this regional tour include Albuquerque, NM; Jerome, AZ; and Berkeley, CA (detailed info below).

These four shows offer a rare chance to catch the 57-member group’s lauded transcendent musical performances outside of Denver, offering up a confounding feast of the senses.

With a driving drum-corps battery, taiko drummers and an arsenal of electronics, the all-encompassing art collective’s live performances invite audience members to join into a frenetic experience of radical immersion and dance.

BRUMALIA 2019 is coming fresh off the group’s two-night Hallowmass performance and offertory, and the release of their new phantasmagoric music video, “Saptaloka.”

    Dance

    Adam ‘12’ Bravin has the very exclusive title of being President Barack Obama’s DJ. 

    He has been one of the most influential artists within the DJ scene since he began his career in the genre of underground hip hop when he was only 16 years old. As word spread of his remarkable abilities, he soon became the go-to DJ for Prince, Dr. Dre, and Puffy, as well as playing parties for Bill Clinton, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, and Michael Jackson, yet because of his love for his craft, he’s been able to toe the line between underground club DJ, and playing Hollywood parties and celebrity events across the country and around the world. 

    Along the way he applied his lifetime of musical knowledge and talents in the recording studio as a producer, remixer, and composer, working with artists such as Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Esthero, Method Man, Redman, Sean Lennon, Mos Def, Placebo, Cut Chemist, and countless others. Not satisfied there, he partnered with musician and childhood friend Justin Warfield and started his own group, She Wants Revenge, which went on to garner massive radio play, sell hundreds of thousands of records, and tour the world with bands like Depeche Mode, The Cure and Placebo, as well as headlining tours and festivals worldwide. 

    In 2013, Bravin partnered with Bryan Rabin and the Hollywood Standard Hotel to launch Giorgio’s, a Modern Discotheque. Named after Giorgio Moroder, the evening features an unparalleled night of dancing and disco that has proven to be a massive hit each week and hosts artists like Mick Jagger, Leonardo DiCaprio, P. Diddy, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sofia Vergara and countless others, including Mr. Moroder himself.
