In this Dream Tour segment, the alternative rock band, oh!no?ok., reveals who they would want on their ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
There are a plethora of bands that have influenced each of us as musicians and our collective works. These influences range from the undeniable classics like Led Zeppelin, 70’s rockers like The Clash, Dead Kennedys, 90’s legends like Nirvana, Weezer, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Presidents of the United States, and all the way to modern rock acts like FIDLAR, Car Seat Headrest, and Sego. To have the opportunity to tour with any collection of these artists would be the height of our musical careers, but we’ve been able to narrow it down into the ideal, prank pulling, slacker rocking, cheap beer drinking power tour trio: oh!no?ok. opening for FIDLAR, with Nirvana as the headliner.
First on the list is FIDLAR. We’ve all been fans of FIDLAR ever since we discovered them in high school. They are the fathers of modern slacker rock and we’ve tried our best to follow the trail they blazed. Their angsty and unsatisfied attitude is perfect for rousing rabble and teaching people not to take life too seriously, and we want to help spread that message. Plus they’d be the ideal tour pranksters and we’ve been saving up some solid pranks for if we ever get the chance to share a van with them.
The headliner of our tour would be the all-time 90’s grunge kings, Nirvana. We’ve taken some serious inspiration both aesthetically and musically from these guys. In our songwriting, we have tried to in-cooperate their hard and brash, as well as their soft and strained sounds, and it would be an absolute honor to open for them. Plus having access to pick their brains as some of the most successful musicians of the modern era would hurt either.
Our touring weapon of choice would be a decked out passenger van, complete with bus doors, bunks, and gear storage. We’d be cruising through the west coast for a month, hitting the major centers like San Diego, LA, San Fransisco, Portland, and finishing off in the birthplace of grunge and slacker rock: Seattle. After our pilgrimage, we’d share one last beer with the boys and head on our merry way.
