I’m not sure how one stage will be able to hold all of these powerhouses performers all together without being demolished. This show is not to be missed!
C O /\/\ /\/\ /\ /\/ D O is a radical queer collaborative music collective centered in San Francisco and comprised of some of the most extreme and renowned queer artists in the United States.
C O /\/\ /\/\ /\ /\/ D O creates violently queer nü-metal. The ensemble fuses rap and hard rock like it’s 1999 in the service of crafting a sincere space to celebrate and aggressively revel in queerness.
“For us, the six members of this incarnation of C O /\/\ /\/\ /\ /\/ D O, making queer-centric nü-metal in 2016 represents a rejection of pop culture and an important, radical act. Appropriating this noxious and comically unhip subgenre—which achieved cultural dominance in the late 90s as a tool for homophobia and misogyny, and exists as a cultural punch line today—and recontextualizing it as a sincere space to revel in queerness is the most beautiful thing we can think to do right now.”
C O /\/\ /\/\ /\ /\/ D O will present its live debut on January 11, 2017 at 8:00 PM at the Rickshaw Stop. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. GET TICKETS HERE
