This legendary, long-running avant-industrial outfit from Chicago move through themes of trauma and tragedy towards ecstatic sites of supreme power. With a performative lense, ONO tackle gospel’s darkest conflicts, the cavernous pits of toxic masculinity, and insidious militarism, among many other horrifying realities. Armed with heavy rhythms, queered religious affect and a deep, dark smirk, ONO’s live show creates a space of catharsis and reverence for contemporary pain. An idiosyncratic voice of resistance explicitly targeting the evils of America for over 30 years: as the world gets darker and darker, ONO only grow more striking and vital.
