Favorite ThisEOTO Spring Tour with Custom Projection Show

Published: March 2, 2011

EOTOEOTO is hitting the road for an extensive spring tour this week with a custom animated video projection show provided by lighting guru Zebbler (through April 9th). The dynamic duo, known for their infectious 100% live improvised performances will kick off their Spring tour this weekend in St Louis with a Mardi Gras style costume party before they crisscross the countryside with stops in Albuquerque, Denver, Austin, Nashville, Tallahassee Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Washington DC, New York City and everywhere in between.

Throbbing bass and thudding beats are the signatures of this project from drummers Michael Travis and Jason Hann. The duo moves effortlessly from choppy dubstep to whip-smart, four-on-the-floor house to psychedelic trip-hop. It's a dance marathon and everyone's in it together. A nebulous beast, set lists are only broken up into tracks for the sake of posterity. In reality, changes in mood, energy, and inspiration are reflected "in real-time" by rhythmic and melodic shifts.

Because EOTO starts fresh every night, the band's evolutionary progress has been thrust into hyperspeed, eclipsing standard acts who return to their dusty catalog for every performance. The wobbly, buzz-saw bass and heavy backbeat style has become a signature of their sets, as heard on their live recordings and on the bands most recent 2009 studio release, Fire the Lazers. Newer live material has the duo co-opting sounds from outside the realm of electronic music with scratchy punk riffs and fuzzy sludge metal bass.

The perfect match for EOTO's incredible live improvised performances, projection designer known lovingly as "Zebbler" will also join the band with a custom animated projection show through April 9th. Zebbler was voted one of the top 20 VJ's in DJ magazine in 2007 and is known for delivering an organic visual odyssey with a genuinely live feel. The projection show will include featured content submitted by fans in a recent video contest as well as custom animations created just for the EOTO Spring Tour.

Along with a massive tour schedule and custom eye candy, the band is also launching the first tastes of their new fan-club ticketing program, offering fans an un-heard of $2 ticketing fees! EOTO is also offering the 2010 New Year performance from Denver as a free download to everyone who purchases a ticket for the entire year.
