The Non

#sxsw #TheNon


The Non is a high-energy experimental quartet that shares musical touchstones with bands like Battles, Grizzly Bear, and The Octopus Project. The Non has been around for 6 years, and in the last three they have been playing sold-out shows in Oklahoma City, Norman, and Stillwater, routinely playing for crowds of 300 people, and John Estus of arts magazine LOOK@OKC calls us "one of the top creative entities in Oklahoma of any kind." The Non has played music festivals such as DFest (Tulsa), South by Southwest, and Norman Music Festival where they were accompanied by a 25-piece orchestra that performed for over 800 people. LOOK@OKC's Nathan Poppe called us "Oklahoma's Most Important Band." The Non has just recently toured with Umphrey’s McGee where they played at The House of Blues in both Dallas and Houston.

"…Elastic song structures, shimmering textures, angular crescendos and hopped-up rhythmic adventures. If Chicago forbearer Tortoise is the tortoise, this band is the hare."
-The Gambit, New Orleans, LA
