The Gigantics

Thursday, January 22

As if the presence of Onry Ozzborn and his five alter-egos—who form like Voltron to become The Gigantics—weren’t enough to permit this word-poor writer to label tonight’s show “eclectic,” there’s the matter of the other folks on the bill. Included is the growling post-punk of Chk Minus, the ambient electro of Minneapolis’ Lookbook, and local MC Sonny Bonoho, whose Dr. Zhivago hat portends tongue-in-cheek on-stage antics of the Ol’ Dirty Bastard variety to come. It’s a well-rounded show—with an edge. Back to Ozzborn: His role as ring-leader of The Gigantics required that he wrangle 5320 MCs (!) to spit over his simple yet seductive production for the Die Already disc. It placed local spitters alongside the likes of Aesop Rock and other underground champs. So after you leave the show, cop that. Photo courtesy Upheaval Design.
