Wolf Eyes' infamous blistering noise propelled them from being a dank Ann Arbour, Michigan basement sensation to the finest ranks of Sub Pop without ever losing a shred of credibility. From touring with Sonic Youth and Andrew W.K., Wolf Eyes have crossed borders into popularity which few other such confrontational units of their ilk have been able to and kept straight and narrow on their blazing path. Originally started as the solo project of former Nautical Almanac member Nate Young, he was soon joined by Aaron Dilloway in 1998, John Olson in 2000 then Mike Connelly and now Crazy Jim. They has released over 150 recordings in their relatively short lifespan, on labels such as Bulb Records, Troubleman Unlimited, Fusetron, and Sub Pop, as well as on Olson’s American Tapes label, Dilloway’s Hanson Records, Mike Connelly’s Gods of Tundra label and Nate Young’s AA Records. This show sees WOLF EYES play a one off UK show in support of their incredible new album 'No Answer: Lower Floors' out this month on De Stijl Records and as anyone whose seen them play live can attest the overwhelming force of a Wolf Eyes performance must be seen/felt/heard to to be believed.

Radical Danish/Faroese artist, musician, storyteller and composer Parl Kristian Bjorn Vester - aka Goodiepal - returns to OTO for another night of the hypnotic and unexpected. With a performance style as enthralling as it is unclassifiable, Goodiepal draws on electronic music, computer technology, spoken word and broader cultural theory. Utterly unique.
