Last Friday at the House of Blues Anaheim, EOTO reminded me why they are truly one of the most unique and musically talented groups around. Through their shows that are completely improvisational, they take you on a journey that mimics the contours of everyday life where they must take risks and face an unknown future, while the crowd bears witness to the magic before them. That night, much like the previous times I have seen them, they played an amazing set that was as eclectic as it was well-executed. The only thing different about it was that I had more of a personal insight into the group as I had a chance to sit down with Jason Hann, the drummer/vocalist, before the show. Read on after the jump to hear about the highlights of their seemingly non-stop tour, an outer-space disco, how Jason keeps a balanced lifestyle on tour (or not), where he thinks electronic music is heading, and what’s next for EOTO.
In just nine days from now, thousands will embark on a journey to a place unlike any other, The Do LaB‘s Lightning in a Bottle. The excellent music, beautiful art, spiritually cleansing yoga, and educational speakers are all to be enjoyed to the fullest at one of my favorite festivals that takes place at the beautiful Oak Canyon Ranch. After attending last year’s LIB, it’s difficult to put to words what my incredible experience was like, but I can assure you that you will be more than happy to have been a part of something much different than your typical music festival. With a well-rounded, eclectic lineup including the legendary Bassnectar, and dozens of other big names/underground acts, I can already tell it’s going to be too much fun going from set to set. Grab your tickets with the link below, check out a video/pictures from last year, and the LIB 2012 mixtape contest winner after the jump!
