Drunken Mermaid will be interviewing EOTO live on Friday, December 5 courtesy our friends at Tsunami. Here’s their press release:
EOTO is kicking off the second leg of their Outer Orbit Tour on Nov 21st.
With over 600 live shows under their belt, EOTO’s unique live approach to EDM has allowed them the freedom to perform with drummers of Stomp, members of String Cheese Incident, members of Umphrey’s McGee, Stanley Jordan, Dominic Lali (Big Gigantic), David Satori & Sidecar Tommy (Beats Antique), Billy Kreutzman, Vinx, Toni Childs, Karsh Kale, Jamie Janover, Steve Kimock, Jamie Shields (New Deal), and Adam Deitch (Lettuce) just to name a few.
EOTO has recieved dozens of awards and accolades for their live production including “Best Live Dubstep” at the Dubstep Awards in 2012, “Top 50 bands to see live” and most recently voted “Best Late Night Show” at III Point Festival in New York City, by Societe Perrier.
EOTO is the rhythm section for the underground sensation, String Cheese Incident. While they don’t like to talk about SCI in this configuration, this is a band who has performed with such legendary talent as James Brown and have performed in front of hundreds of stadium sized audiences and sold out crowds. Their talent is undeniable.
Not just a haphazard foray into experimental EDM music, the duo starts their musical adventure from scratch (there are no pre-recorded loops, no backing tracks, and no pre-constructed songs in their live production) building each set, note-by-note, beat by beat, live before the audience as each show explodes into a full-scale dance party. EOTO just announced new additions to their award winning light show and visuals as part of the fall tour.
