• Diegesis

Local art-rock collective Ono, a band that formed in the early 80s and was resurrected from a long dormancy a few years ago, released Albino on Moniker Records in late 2012. The band’s first recordings since 1986, Albino saw Ono picking up where it had left off, creating sprawling, herky-jerky soundscapes crossed with theatrical performance art. Since the band’s initial return in 2008, they’ve become one of the busiest and most visible bands on the local underground circuit, and this weekend they’ll be releasing their second postreunion LP, Diegesis, also on Moniker. (You can listen to an exclusive full-album stream right here on the Bleader).

This Saturday, March 29, the band will be celebrating the record’s official release with a party at Quenchers. The bill is stacked with other weird and heady locals, including the excellent headliners Verma and the wildly intense Toupee. Ono will also be performing their set with their new full-time member, modular synthesizer player Brett Naucke—a guy best known around town for making really, really good chili.

The show starts at 9 PM and cover is only $5.
