A collaboration between David Baerwalde, Maria McDowell, and Mike Stasny
“The truth is…Mike and Maria and I (David) had just started making some noise together in my new studio when the pandemic shut everything down. We were having a lot of fun and were excited about hosting some events, and we didn’t want to give that up or stop playing, so we were forced to incarnate THE ON N ON, go back in time and embark on a world tour, naturally…and the rest is made up.
Right now THE ON N ON are about a third of the way through a 26 city(A to Z) 2019 World Tour. In each city THE ON N ON visit, they record a new song and generate unique poster art for that show. They’ve been to some really incredible places, starting with the Holiday Inn on 8th Street in Anaheim, CA, to a bizarre show in a community gym in Hamhung, N. Korea. (Where upon departure the “authorities” confiscated the art and audio recording!)”
This video is “Lorenzo”, from the Sept. 14, 2019 show in Granada, Nicaragua.

its in the edges
its in the accidents and synchronizations and the random its in the edit
its in the glitch
its in the feeling of time and the measurement of futility its in the daymeetsnight
its in the letgo
its on the shoreline and of the stars
its in the dust the chemicals the guts the goo
