Skinny Puppy Svengali Nivek Ogre’s side project ohGr plays SF’s Bottom of the Hill

You might still be reeling from Thanksgiving overindulgence next week, but we have the perfect spine-stiffening, sit-bolt-upright cure — drop by San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill on Thursday, Dec. 1, to catch an unusually intimate performance from Skinny Puppy Svengali Nivek Ogre’s spooky side project with Mark Walk, ohGr.

Billed as the Western Fallout Tour, it’s the duo’s first juggernaut in three years, backing their recent “undeveloped” album. And given their penchant for audio/visual theatrics, you’re guaranteed one hellishly entertaining evening.

And ohGr even has an appropriately mysterious new website, replacing www.ohgr.org with www.wdihtf.com, an acronym for “Who Do I Have To F—?” that bids you “Welcome to Collidoskope.”

It includes a Mr. Brownstone’s section with a typewriter whose keys reproduce various voice messages, and a store that apparently signals Ogre striking out on his DIY own, with a new ohGr single “Tragek” for sale and other music, like the track “Welcome To Collidoskope,” available for free downloading.

“Finally ohGr has become unchained from the legal ties that bound our ability to self-release the music you have been wondering about,” the site proclaims, promising further expansion in 2012.

Let the mad-scientist experiment commence!
