DO YOU HATE NEOLOLIBERAL BULLSHIT?????

****join Lodia******

Lodia is an interactive rock-opera/party/witch-hunt comprised of 12 original songs, half electronic and half live. Lodia is seeking
singers, actors, dancers, rappers, artists, cowbell players, equilibrists, and trolling little fuckers to help us throw a wild party.

PLOT:
Confused? LODIA is an absurd-gory-feminist-witchy-radical-satirical rock-funk-folk-punk-opera. Throughout the long, strange, ceremonial course of this conversion party, the religious/political forces and local rebels fight over the audience’s attention through their opposing electronic and live music expressions. When the head rebel, Nadia, is revealed to be a witch, the audience and citizens of Lodia run into the woods behind the party to witch-hunt. As the alt-broian little Jewish boy audience member Oliver Rubenstein attempts to earn Nadia’s love, the forces of good and evil slowly blur. In the end, somebody’s gonna die and everybody’s gonna dance.
