Woah, wait, what — you’re writing an entire news post about ONE SINGLE Oneohtrix Point Never concert now? What, putting his latest album R Plus Seven at the tippy top of your 2013 faves list and even writing some really steamy fan fiction about the mild-mannered Daniel Lopatin wasn’t enough? Now you gotta go ahead and become his personal show-fer? Okay sorry, that was a bad pun — on either “gopher” or “chauffeur,” I’m not sure which — but seriously, Oneohtrix Point Whatever! That’s what I say!
So you’re saying that this show was just announced, that it’s happening tonight in London at the Ace Hotel, and that it’s presented by Warp along with Cave Empt (who will also provide visuals) and SHOWStudio? And that patten, felicita (editor’s note: <3), Brood Ma, Ana Caprix, and J-Cush (of Lit City Trax) will also be there? And that it’s free but you gotta RSVP? I know I said it once, and that each time I repeat it, the returns are going to diminish, but… Oneohtrix Point Whatever: That shit just sounds like a regular show to me.
“But wait there’s more!” you say. Dolphins? Why yes, of course; I love dolphins! Is OPN going to perform in a dolphin suit, because that’d be funny but… Oh! You’re saying he’s going to be performing as “Ecco the Dolphin”? And that he’s going to be playing music in the style of the rarely-heard-live eccojams from Chuck Person’s Eccojams Vol. 1, a.k.a. the album that more or less maybe kind of sort of spawned vaporwave if you ask certain people on certain days of the week when the angle of the sun is just right? Oh man, you seem pretty excited about that one. Why are your teeth chattering? Is that… is that foam at the corners of your mouth? I’m sorry! I take it all back! Oneohtrix Point Always! Oneohtrix Point Always!
