SSION, led by singer Cody Critcheloe, formed in Kansas City in 1996. Critcheloe is known for his exuberant and energetic live performances, which make Freddie Mercury look like a sloth. Just check out their video for "Clown" (below) to get an idea of what to expect!
They recently released a feature film titled Boy, which was "made up of music videos strung together to produce the gay, punk-rock equivalent of Forrest Gump" and are currently touring in support of their latest release, Bent.
SSION plays the Electric Owl Oct 21. Tickets are $10.
