The Octopus Project


Visually, they take cues from Sonic Youth—one woman among guys dressed like office temps. Musically, they’re closer to the electronica madness of Holy Fuck, even though O’s been around longer—they’re now celebrating their tenth anniversary. These Austinites caught a lucky break three years ago when they got a Coachella spot, and they’re still trying to capitalize on it. They do deserve the recognition—like HF, their frantic live show is definitely worth seeing. With Exit Clob and TRTL Soup.
