Picó Picante is back at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Boston this summer on July 31st, teaming up for their Wavelengths outdoor programming!
We’ve had so much fun in past years, playing on the waterfront with folks like Jubilee, Que Bajo?!, and Mexican Institute of Sound. This year we’ve bringing Otto Von Schirach up from Miami for a live performance, bringing his mutant Miami bass, live and direct from the “King of the Bermuda Triangle.” Picó residents will be opening for Otto– tickets are still available here.
“Otto Von Schirach grew up in Little Havana, Miami, surrounded by Miami bass,
Cuban tropic music, Afro-Cuban noise, gangsta rap—and a White Magic–practicing grandmother. These musical and supernatural influences come through in unhinged and chaotic songs that merge dubstep, 80s dance music, grind, noise, psychobilly, garage rock, and tropical calypso: Pitchfork called one track “a fevered hallucination,” another “just the right mix of mutilated party anthem and breakneck cut/paste lunacy.”
