On the evening of Sunday, October 22nd we are proud to present experimental hip-hop artist Eric Dontè (STL), experimental industrial-electronic musician Angel of Deth (STL), and DJ/producer Paul Maul (CMH). The performance will take place at the It Looks Like Its Open gallery (13 E. Tulane Rd, cmh 43202). Admission: $5. Doors 7:30pm. BYOB, all ages.
About the performers:
Eric Dontè is a Red Bull Academy artist, performed at Bonnaroo, and is releasing their newest album “A Lamp in the Room” at The STL Contemporary Art Museum on October 20th. They call it “ghetto trance” music; you might call it dark, twisted, honest and minimalist. Donté, who also goes by Fadda Vampire, creates hip-hop confessions that sound cinematic, even without the benefit of their stylish videos (Donté is also a model). Donté’s stream of consciousness flows in an eerie mist, but it also reverberates, like Tricky arriving strung out and late to an underwater séance in St. Louis. The 23-year-old native St. Louisan released the haunting God Don’t Like Ugly EP in 2016.
Jed James aka Paul Maul is a painter, producer, DJ and founding member of the Midwest Fresh crew in Columbus, Ohio.
