Occult A/V & Athr with OfNazareth

August 25, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$8 – $10

Seattle experimentalists Occult A/V and Athr are set to bring “extra-terrestrial electronic and hip hop music” to Conor Byrne Pub in Ballard on Thursday, August 25. Occult A/V and Athr co-headline and will be supported by local rapper OfNazareth.

Occult A/V’s live shows are, as the moniker would imply, a complete audiovisual experience, one that aims to transport an audience beyond the edge of the known universe. Blending My Bloody Valentine-esque noise collages with the heady, downtempo grooves reminiscent of Flying Lotus or Ras G, Occult A/V’s music is like a marriage of UK dub and post-punk with the hypnotizing rhythms of the LA beat scene. Part hallucination, part dream, part rave, Occult A/V will have you pulsing to the rhythms of another world.

Athr can single-handedly transform the energy of a room in seconds. Pairing grimy, experimental hip hop with danceably infectious hooks, Athr’s music will at one moment bludgeon you only to have you dancing moments later. Athr’s Afrofuturist aesthetic—reflected in everything from wardrobe choices to robotic dancing—brings to mind artists ranging from Grace Jones to Shabazz Palaces. Athr’s genrebending work feels as though it comes to us from a future that is yet to be imagined.

OfNazareth’s complex and often heavily alliterative flow is a feast for the ears, backed by his own gritty and grinding style of boom bap. With stylistic nods to such greats as Cannibal Ox, Wu Tang, and Mobb Deep, OfNazareth offers a tantalizing blend of the newschool with the oldschool.
