A throbbing 32-piece band of masked chaos invites you to dissolve the performer/audience divide and melt into the bedlam, that is the disorienting power of itchy-O. The itchy-O Marching Band (IOMB) is a Denver-based percussion-centered electronic marching band and the mobile arm of the experimental film/music troupe itchy-O. itchy-O brings a sophisticatedly savage sound and the sheer ecstasy of instruments untethered and running free. With a driving drum corp complemented by an arsenal of electronics including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders, and many other special devices, the IOMB completely engulfs and immerses an audience from every angle in a pounding electric bog of music, ephemera and spectacle. The unidentifiable IOMB is waging war on predictable mediocrity with their guerrilla-style performances which feature an artfully hazardous Chinese lion, sensuous dancing twin apparitions, fog, strobes, sequins, sweat and fury. itchy-O has been featured on Colordao Public Radio, performed for the Biennial of the Americas Kick-off Party, Denver’s Underground Music Showcase, Westword’s Artopia, conferences such as Adobe’s Effective UI, and other festivals and launch parties. They’ve opened for DEVO, The Melvins, March Fourth, the Extra Action Marching Band, the Warlock Pinchers and headlined many other shows.
