    Culture Queer with You, You're Awesome http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_ao_Zay_ok http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZrPzhkNKSM"Culture Queers adventurous, eccentric Pop experiments are a melding of hyper-catchy hooks delivered over the foursomes morphing backdrop of electronics and fluctuating forms of Rock music. Consisting of three filmmakers, Culture Queer performances (delivered everywhere from art galleries to corner bars) are A/V spectaculars, featuring video art accompaniment that can be mixed live. The band has released three brilliant albums, starting withSupersize It Under Pontius Pilatein 2004 and culminating with last yearsNightmare Band, which was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2012 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards." -Mike Breen (CityBeat)"Besides possessing one of the best band names ever, You, Youre Awesome is also one of Cincinnatis more endearing and entertaining original acts, both live and on record. The duo features drummer Kevin Bayers energetic and musical live drums and Yusef Quotah on keys and other electronic tools. Every song YYA plays is different, with Quotah coaxing a kaleidoscopic range of sounds out of his machines to create an aural collage that draws from various EDM sources, as well as other genres, video games and vintage analog synthesizers. The duo, which has found success with shows outside of the city (including dates at the Forecastle Festival and CMJs Music Marathon), has released several EPs and 2011s full-length debut,Good Point, Whoever Said That." -Mike Breen (CityBeat)

    You You're Awesome w/ Vacationer You, You're AwesomeUnlike most Techno, YYA keeps the songs shorter four or five minutes nearly creating Pop songs using electronic instruments and tricks like the actual Atari 2600 video game music, along with computers, keys and live drums. Quotah explains, Theres a lot of stuff that I have pre-recorded, but then theres extra bits that I layer on top or I can also trigger things at different times.With influences including everything from DJ Mr. Scruff to Orbital to Duke Ellington, YYAs music echoes the sentiment of playtime, stuffed animals, hand-drawn worlds made of shapes and colored innocence with a touch of pleasantly weird history. - CityBeatWebsiteVacationerWebsite
