[UPDATE] Due to circumstances outside Kilted Farmer Koncerts’ control, this show has been canceled. All tickets purchased online from Ticketfly have been refunded. If you purchased tickets from Amsterdam or one of Amsterdam’s ticket outlets, please return to point of purchase for a refund.
The Hocico show originally scheduled for May 22, 2018 has been postponed due to delays with the band’s visa process. We are currently working with Hocico’s team and the venue to re-schedule. As soon as we have a new date set, we’ll let everyone know here and on our social sites.
Because we do not yet have a new date set, all pre-sale tickets for the 5/22 Minnesota date will be refunded and those tickets will not be valid for the re-scheduled date.
How do I get a refund?
If you purchased online through TicketFly, you’ll be automatically refunded by the end of this week.
If you purchased paper tickets in person at Amsterdam or a ticket outlet, stop by Amsterdam with your ticket to receive a refund at the main bar.
Will I need to buy a new ticket for the new date? Yes. Once tickets go on sale for the new date, you’ll need to purchase a new ticket for the re-scheduled date.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but we felt it was the best course of action to issue refunds right away and start fresh when we have a new date.
Here’s the official statement from Hocico. Note that because we’re issuing refunds to everyone now, tickets originally purchased for 5/22 will not be valid for the new Minnesota date, and this differs from the band’s statement.
Dear Hocicones in the USA, We are sorry to inform you that our visa process has been delayed therefore we can’t play the shows planned for May 2018.
Our work permits/Visas to enter the US have been put on hold, they keep asking for extra documents and we are not sure if they will be ready on time for the tour dates in May.
The process for obtaining the permits have become tougher for all musicians and unfortunately we have to postpone and re-schedule such dates.
We are already in contact with all the promoters and we are working to re-schedule the dates for a later point this year, no worries, if you already have tickets for a show they will be valid for the next date in your city! We deeply apologize for the inconveniences this might have caused any of you and we hope you all understand the situation. We will have more news soon and we look forward to seeing you very soon!!
Sincerely Pure Underground, Erk and Racso
Thanks everyone for understanding, and for your continued support of independent music.
Ego Likeness was created in 1999 by artist Steven Archer, a DC native, and writer Donna Lynch in Baltimore, Maryland. Taking their name from Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel Dune, the band began as an experimental/ dark trip hop project. Throughout the course of four full length albums and several EPs, Ego Likeness have explored numerous styles from darkwave to trip-hop to rock.
Ego Likeness signed with Metropolis Records in 2010 to release their fourth album, Breedless. The album showcases their dark electronic trip hop sensibilities overlaid with Donna’s passionately emotive vocals. While many may compare them to Curve and Collide, Ego Likeness continues to take their music to darker corners of the human psyche.
In addition to touring extensively with The Cruxshadows, Voltaire, Ayria, Angelspit, The Ludovico Technique, Ego Likeness has had the honor of sharing the stage with The Damned, Peter Murphy, Chris Connelly, Collide, Razed in Black, Bella Morte, Das Ich, Rasputina, Iris, Decoded Feedback, The Azoic, More Machine Than Man, In Strict Confidence, Combichrist, Stromkern, New Model Army, And One, Seabound, Attrition, Assemblage 23, Nitzer Ebb, Aesthetic Perfection, Terrorfakt, The Gothsicles, and many others.
Ego Likeness has performed at festivals throughout the US and in Europe, including Dragon*Con (Atlanta GA), Convergence 11 (San Diego CA), Dracula’s Ball (Philadelphia PA), Ring Con (Fulda, Germany), Balticon (Baltimore MD), Black Sun Festival I (New Haven CT), Freaks United (DC), Eccentrik Festival (Raleigh NC), Reverence (Madison WI), Wicked Faire (Somerset NJ), WTII Mini-Fest (Chicago IL), several Electronic Saviors Benefit shows, and others.
Stoneburner is the solo project from Steven Archer that combines tribal fusion electronic dance music with experimental sounds. Steven Archer is a multifaceted musician, artist, and writer. He is best known for his work with the electronic rock band Ego Likeness (Metropolis Records) as well has is abstract electronica project ::Hopeful Machines::. His music has been used in several feature sound tracks including the recent award winning documentary Small Small Thing. He has also been commissioned to score a video for NASA on the upcoming OSIRIS-REx mission.
Stoneburner is his vision of the music and philosophy of Frank Herbert’s “Dune” book series. It fuses traditional organic instruments and vocals from all over the world with modern electronic dance music in an attempt to tap into the books technological-tribal aesthetic. His hope is that the project will do justice to the novel’s vision of Arrakis and it’s warrior inhabitants.
Live shows are intense and fluid, consisting of multimedia video projections and often incorporate tribal fusion belly dance troupes.
He has written and illustrated several books available on Amazon.com as well as freelance art for several publishers including Weird Tales magazine. His artwork and jewelry can be purchased from the Ego Likeness etsy store.
