KILL THE KEG: Pride Edition!

ONONOS began 5 years ago as a collaborative multi-media project by 3 friends who wanted a vehicle to explore their mutual interests in music, visual & conceptual art. During their first couple of years ONONOS focused on paying homage to, reinterpreting, and vandalizing songs by artists and groups that they admired, idolized, or even loathed. The list of subjects included seminal punks The Germs, The Misfits, The Screamers, DC hardcore legends Bad Brains, as well as industrial pioneers Throbbing Gristle, early-nineties techno obscurity La Tour, psych-goth legends Tones On Tail, and Yoko Ono. Never a straight-forward cover/tribute band,ONONOS versions of these artists’ songs vary wildly from their original versions, often to the point of being unrecognizable. Masks, elaborate costumes and startling visual projections; along with props/set pieces, have also been a key component of ONONOS performances and overall aesthetic. The group’s collective interest in Dadaism/Absurdism is also a major influence on their overall style. Currently the group’s sets tend to consist of a mixture of original compositions and covers/reinterpretations. Their sound encompasses elements of industrial/noise, post-punk, acid-house, New Age, and IDM.
