'Mo-Wave Festival (Queer Music Festival)


CHRISTEENE is a sexually infused sewer of live rap and vile shamelessness, capable of adapting amazingly well to all styles of music.It is noted that CHRISTEENE commands a stage presence of furious intensity accompanied by a strict regiment of hardcore dance and destructive choreography. The singer’s impressive sound arsenal showcases a wide range of musical appreciation and mastery ranging from Electro to R&B, Hip Hop &Trap Music, with titles including ‘Fix My Dick’, ‘Tears From My Pussy’, ‘African Mayonnaise’ and ‘Bustin’ Brown’.These songs, written by the artist, offer an intimate and fascinating glimpse into the private and sometimes heartbreaking experiences of this talented nightmare.Reports from live shows describe scenes involving butt plugs tied to bouquets of balloons being released into the air from CHRISTEENE’s arse, intimate and bizarre confessionals over tea, backup boys in handmade Panda masks urinating on canvas sacks containing the singer, and a DIY anti-fashion wardrobe styled from the forgotten scraps of society. Appearing alongside CHRISTEENE are two sexually distinct Backup Boyz, T-Gravel and C-Baby, along with accompanying DJ/ music producer, JJ Booya, rumored to be the entertainer’s third cousin.


ONONOS began 5 years ago as a collaborative multi-media project by 3 friends who wanted a vehicle to explore their mutual interests in music, visual & conceptual art. During their first couple of years ONONOS focused on paying homage to, reinterpreting, and vandalizing songs by artists and groups that they admired, idolized, or even loathed. The list of subjects included seminal punks The Germs, The Misfits, The Screamers, DC hardcore legends Bad Brains, as well as industrial pioneers Throbbing Gristle, early-nineties techno obscurity La Tour, psych-goth legends Tones On Tail, and Yoko Ono. Never a straight-forward cover/tribute band,ONONOS versions of these artists’ songs vary wildly from their original versions, often to the point of being unrecognizable. Masks, elaborate costumes and startling visual projections; along with props/set pieces, have also been a key component of ONONOS performances and overall aesthetic. The group’s collective interest in Dadaism/Absurdism is also a major influence on their overall style. Currently the group’s sets tend to consist of a mixture of original compositions and covers/reinterpretations. Their sound encompasses elements of industrial/noise, post-punk, acid-house, New Age, and IDM.


Dust Moth are a product of the same prolific nexus of Seattle musicians as Minus the Bear, These Arms Are Snakes, Undertow, and so forth — both TAAS guitarist Ryan Frederiksen and ex-MTB keyboardist/Northwestern heavy music engineer of record Matt Bayles contribute their talents, while vocalist Irene Barber handles mic duty.


Hot Fruit is an all Diva 3 piece electronic band with two keyboards, a drum machine and vocals. We are also a performance group, and incorporate costumes and performance elements.


Death Metals is a four-piece band from Seattle Washington. Jordan Morris plays bass, Chris Byrne drums, Ryan Weadon plays synth, and Zack Marley sings. Their first album, Have Faith, will be out in May. It’s the sun-baked psychedelia of desert rock filtered through ashen skies and thick, grinding electronics. When it gets loud, it gets very loud; when it gets quiet, it gets very quiet; when it gets dark, it gets very, very dark.
