oOoOO & Rush Midnight
Rush Midnight, Cavale, DENMAN
1115 U Street NW
Washington, DC, 20009
This event is 18 and over
Drawing from acts as diverse as Ludacris, Britney Spears, and Broadcast, oOoOO marries hip-hop-influenced beats with pop melodies and experimental sounds.
"What Burial is to rave, oOoOO seems to be for relationship. These songs are the ghosts of love affairs and the spectres of sex and we should be celebrating this for what it is: a strange, emotionally unsettling model of pop music that is high on melody, atmosphere and subtle drama." – FACT MAGAZINE
"Like the Knife, Salem or Glass Candy, oOoOO stand at the strange crossroads between sanctity and sex." – xxjfg
"oOoOO opens timelines between Hypnagogic Pop and the present. And it turns it back to the edit, the cut up, still the best defense against the war on culture, still as beautiful as a safety pin through the face of the queen." – The Wire
Russ Manning was formerly the bass player for Twin Shadow, but he's got a new gig now as Rush Midnight (note the matching initials there). Cascine Records is releasing RM's debut EP, +1, on October 30th.
