Cafe OTO & Upset the Rhythm present: Wolf Eyes with Beatrice Dillon + Aaron Dilloway (solo) + Sharon Gal (solo)

Hugely excited to present a three-day residency with the one and only Wolf Eyes following on from the reissue of their seminal Dread LP as well as new double LP from Universal Eyes – Four Variations On 'Artificial Society – that brings together Wolf Eyes and the reborn Universal Indians project which first emerged in 1993.

Born in the dead, dread-filled haunted hills of Michigan, Wolf Eyes are the rabid beasts of Trip Metal & have been plowing thru new tunnels of the underworld since 1997. Pure audio stunn, homemade post-nuclear terror & claustrophobic atmospheres -- the most shattered and confusing horrorvision since Bo Diddley dropped the duct taped warhead on all humans in 2024. 

Aaron Dilloway

Hailing from Michigan, Aaron Dilloway was a founding member of formidable trip metal gods Wolf Eyes. Since he left that band a decade ago, he’s delicately extended his exploration of tape manipulations and found sound appropriation, simultaneously bringing warmth and acidity, high-end assault and dreamy dislocation in a way that could be said to unwittingly form a bridge between Robert Ashley and hauntology.

A serial collaborator, he’s also made great records in cahoots with Jason Lescalleet, C. Spencer Yeh and many more and been compared to Maryanne Amacher and Nurse With Wound. Currently based in Oberlin, Ohio, from where he runs the Hanson Records label and mailorder.
