Multisensory Art/Music “Cult” itchy-O Launching SYPHERLOT DRIVE-IN RADIO BATH in Denver

57-member itchy-O brings its enveloping multimodal performance theatrics to Denver’s North Wynkoop (4242 N. Wynkoop) for a drive-in concert series unlike any other, presented by Denver Film + Overlook Film Festival.

Launching Friday, August 14th, the Sypherlot Drive-In Radio Bath will combine the group’s lauded pyrotechnic and percussive bombast with short-band private radio broadcast and other interactive elements ensuring each vehicle has an individual-yet-connected sonic experience. 

In the wake of pandemic-delayed performances, the time is right to launch a cosmogenic conflagration, laying waste to previous notions of concerts in “the new normal” by ushering in a joyful sonic bath of post-apocalyptic unifying magic.

And as in typical itchy-O tradition, expect as hands-on an experience as otherworldly possible in this meta-drive-in: Think Lion Country Safari meets Thunderdome, with interstellar performers interacting with vehicles to turn each car into a dancefloor, all while adhering to CDC-recommended public-health guidelines.
