Out of the multi-instrumental experimental pop experience of Man Man rises Honus Honus, aka front man Ryan Kattner, on the road as a solo artist with his latest project, USE YOUR DELUSION. Self described as ‘dystopian pop’, Honus’ summery avant-synth-rock is upbeat and carefree even when the lyrics may run against the grain into darker territory. Inspired collaborators on the album range from comedian Jon Daly, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, drummer Joe Plummer (Cold War Kids, Modest Mouse) and Oakland’s own Shannon and the Clams and the process of Honus’ early forays on tour are documented in the film Use Your Delusion, also screening at MVFF41. When Honus is in the house, he says: “ultimately I just want to have the most engaging and fun live show possible. That’s not much to ask, right?” Not too much to ask at all.
