Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

Fabricatorz Foundation announces O.N.G. (ONLY NEXT GENERATION), a one night music and visual media experience. The event opens at 8:30 PM on Friday, April 27, 2018 at the #breakerspace01 at 4240 Duncan Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110.

O.N.G. is the launch party for Fabricatorz Foundation. They’re kicking off a series of art and music events creating collaborations between international acts and local rising artists.

“O.N.G., pronounced O-N-G, is named after famous St. Louis media-theorist, Walter Ong, and the O.N.G. event highlights the long media art history of St. Louis, attracting progressive minds and innovative culture,” says Tyler Mathews, board member and co-founder of Fabricatorz Foundation.

The launch party is headlined by Mexico City’s experimental club music collective NAAFI and St. Louis rapper Eric Dontè.

The goal is to catalyze cross-cultural exchange between St. Louis and global art and music communities, pushing the boundaries of art and music programming, and establishing St. Louis as the epicenter of a next generation of cultural activity.

“NAAFI is redefining experimental media and club culture. Fabricatorz Foundation is bringing NAAFI’s brand of Mexican Futurism to St. Louis for the first time to accelerate and connect St. Louis to Mexico City and to make the artists stronger in both places,”

Attendees can expect to find a concert and gallery experience re-imagined through an accessible club environment. Organizing the entire exhibition is contemporary artist Hayden Molinarolo, who will also be performing as his alter-ego, DETH_BB.

Molinarolo, (pronounced, MOLE-IN-A-ROLO), is already designing and building the space at the Fabricatorz Foundation’s #breakerspace01 residency, at Cortex Innovation District’s 4240 Heritage Building.

“We’re grafting the underworld of the Mayan with Midwest Futurism,” said DETH_BB. “Come to O.N.G. at the #breakerspace01 and be prepared to experience a labyrinth of artwork and special guests, all culminating in a performance by my alter-ego, DETH_BB, and Eric Dontè. NAAFI will finish you off for the night in a hallucinogenic Mexico City-infused alternate reality experience.”
