EOTO Fires Up at the State Theatre

EOTO, a side project of two members of the String Cheese Incident, played a razor-sharp bass blasting performance at the State Theatre on part of their Bass Invaders tour. Although only roughly 150 tickets were sold for Thursday Night’s show, Michael Travis and Jason Hann acted more like DJs than musicians with the sound they produced.  My eyes were watching two men playing instruments inside of a lotus flower surrounded by psychedelic color, but my ears were somehow stuck in some sort of Dayglow flashback.

Kraddy opened the show with an hour and a half long set built of a variety of samples, beats, and pixelated images of space, rings of fire, and trippy geometric patterns.  It became very apparent during his set that not many people were going to show up.  However, the people who did show up at 9 pm were off of their seats and gyrating to the blaring beats.

Two hours after the show started, EOTO took the stage with a Star Wars title sequence that summarized what type of music the audience should brace themselves to hear.  One phrase in the the intro called it “Music with no boundaries.”   This could very well be the most accurate description of what happened last night.  Haunting, fading vocals trickle over top of spine-tingling synth, string, and drum loops.  The equipment set up of keyboards, guitars, and drums isn’t enough to create that unique sound. You need laptops, mixing boards, pitch shifters, and a whole ordeal of esoteric things.  Nevertheless, it is still an incredible way to fuse two sides of the musical spectrum.
