No venue in Colorado is spookier than the Stanley Hotel, the inspiration for the haunted Overlook Hotel in Stephen King's The Shining. Since a recent revamp, the concert hall in the Estes Park landmark has proved the perfect setting for all kinds of acts, from DeVotchKa to Murder by Death.
But what could be more appropriate than Itchy-O performing a music rite there?

Itchy-O, which started as an experimental film/noise project, morphed into a marching band and now describes itself as a "57-member multisensory musical-art cult." It will perform Birth of the Silver River: A Disambiguation Ceremony at the Stanley on two nights — Friday, March 29, and Saturday, March 30 — with support from Amigo the Devil.
The troupe promises "an unforgettable weekend of cosmological ritual and musical ceremony," and if there's one guarantee about an Itchy-O performance, it's that the show will be unforgettable.
The first 200 tickets are $35 a pop; after that, they go up to $40. Get yours at Itchy-O's website.
