SSION will be in Athens/Bios during their first headline European tour, for a live set and after party that will last till dawn. SSION (is pronounced shun), is Critcheloe’s project alone and is ever evolving but through his music, art and performance he emphasizes that the world of SSION is an inclusionary one. Critcheloe, the frontman-child, considers SSION to be more of a brand for his idea(L)s than anything else, while it doesn’t belong to any scene. The band is always active but never consistent; as they release records whenever they want to, over he last 10 years.
SSION’s live shows are legendary, they’ve previously toured with The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Gossip are heading to Europefor their first headline tour. 2012’s release “Bent” garnered huge amounts of attention from the likes of the New York Times, Dazed & Confused, V magazine, Huffington Post, The Fader and VICE and was accompanied by critically acclaimed music videos for “My Love Grows In The Dark”, “Earthquake”, “Luvvbazaar” and “High” – all produced and directed by Critcheloe. He’s also directed videos for other artists including The Gossip, Peaches and Santigold.
So, don’t miss out on this gig @BIOS on Saturday the 15th of June. It all starts at 23:00 with a GRRRLZ (GR) DJ set featuring innovative and stoned hip hop artists, teen beatmakers, nigga bitches alongside massive club anthems from the 90s and at least one Destiny’s Child remix per set. SSION (US) will get on stage for a live performance right after that and AMATEURBOYZ will drive the night to a climax with their dynamic DJ set. The Spatial design & decorations is made by FLOWER BOYS. Just be there @ BIOS – 84 Peiraios st.
