coverDYR FASER – DYR Faser Volume 1 (VULP-0069)

DYR FASER’s initial release for Vulpiano Records is a compilation of tracks from October 2015 through January 2016. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, DYR FASER is Eric Bøømhower, joined by Thalia Zedek on guitar in “Kōsō Biru” and in live performances playing guitar and singing vocal harmonies.

DYR FASER Volume 1 is a wonderful swirl of synth and guitar, each song a dark, dangerous world of texture to get lost inside of. This is really one of the releases that I’ve been most proud of for Vulpiano. Listen for yourself.

Zedek has fronted bands Live Skull, Uzi, and Come and currently fronts The Thalia Zedek Band and E. Bøømhower’s influences range from krautrock to the dark psychedelia of Suicide and Spacemen 3.

Co-Presenting Competitive Erotic Fanfiction at SF Sketchfest, January 15th 2016

Next week on Friday, January 15th I will be co-presenting SF Sketchfest’s Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction event at Brava Theater on behalf of Good Vibrations! Given that, for better or worse, I received my initial sex education from anime slash and British rock band fan fics, it is clear that everything has truly come full circle. Get your tickets here:

Bryan Cook hosts the live show and podcast that holds the esteemed honor of being the internet’s #1 most trusted source for Muppet boners and horny loners. Comedians compete writing and performing Erotic Fan Fiction pieces, based upon their whims or audience suggestion.

Rolling Stone listed the show as one of its “Best Comedy Podcasts Right Now,” calling it “foul, outrageous… and compelling” with jokes that “transcend porn mechanics to become a titillating delight.”

Come see why Laughspin.Com said CEFF “might be one of my favorite comedy shows I’ve ever taken in. Period.” $25, 18+
