06/01 @ Tim's Tavern: GRAZ / Crunk Witch / Lex Lingo /D*S

We've been asked to be on this bill with our old buddy Lex Lingo, the inimitable GRAZ (who we've played with before as part of Gonken), and Crunk Witch, a touring act from Maine who are just goddamn awesome.

So go to this one. It should be awesome.

Words are Wind

A few of you were odd enough ducks to pick up a copy of our Norwescon-exclusive EP, "Words are Wind", which contains our tributes to George R.R. Martin's epic series, A Song of Ice and Fire. We're huge fans (except Bill Beats, who can't read due to not caring at all about words), and we had a great time creating these tracks. Eventually they'll each find their way onto a themed EP for the setting, but for now they exist in the hands of a very slim few.

That said, those few lack a track list for the EP. Sorry about that.

01. Blackwater
02. Dragons, Wargs, and Three-Eyed Crows
03. Playing the Role [Skit] 
04. VoD: aSoIaF [featuring Press B]
05. Oak and Iron, Guard Me Well 
06. Envy, Lust, and Low Cunning [Skit] 
07. Though All Men Do Despise Us 
08. The North Remembers
09. Bill Beats is a Huge Fan [Skit]

Lyrics are forthcoming; I don't have time to post them at the moment, but I will within the week. EDIT: Lyrics are present, so I'm as good as my word. - 3PO

May your genitals swell and embiggen the way you'd hoped,

3PO

The Big Sleep

It seems like every year after Norwescon we drag our torpid, crapulous husks home from SeaTac and muddle through Easter like mental patients on furlough. I myself managed to avoid the Noid on Hangover Day and be a good dad; I'm told Bill Beats only just woke up, and C0splay vomited up some sort of eldritch horror and then went to work. I don't know if any of this is true because -- as you all know -- I don't care enough about my bandmates to make sure they've survived.

And now we're on to the part of the year that has traditionally become our hibernation period, with no one hearing from us until some time in June. I'd love to say we're hard at work on some sort of album or project, but the truth is that without a bender to pursue like a holy crusade or a deadline looming like an angry colonoscopy appointment, it's more likely that we're gonna spend the next two months in various states of shabby undress, watching whatever's available on Netflix in a haze of hookah smoke and Chex Mix. It is entirely possible that during this period of time a stillborn attempt at an EP will gasp a shocked breath from the digital wastebasket of Bill Beats' ProTools dungeon and we'll halfheartedly present it to the world like the baby we claim we always wanted, but I doubt it. I think you've got a better shot convincing me to finish that Rook the Rhymer album I didn't start.

Does this all sound bitter, jaded, and ungrateful? That's cool; it's mostly bullshit. I mean, we have no shows planned or anything, but never fear, Death*Starmy; we've got stuff to keep us busy. If we're good little rappertures, you may even get to hear some of it before summertime. Forget what I said before; we're trying to bake a souffle here.

Love and Other Fairytales,

3PO

Norwescon 38

Once again, Death*Star sallies forth to shock and offend audiences at Norwescon. Will we meet George R. R. Martin this time? Attend the Philip K. Dick awards? Get sloppy drunk and sweat all over people? I really don't know, guys; I really don't.

Our set is  on Thursday at 9:00 in Evergreen 1 & 2 (right after 9K1, who you should ALSO see), and we'll be playing the DethCon room party on Saturday night. If you're going to the con, you need to see us, hear us, smell us, and quite likely feel and taste us, too, because those rooms are small and stuffy and we perspire a lot and you will probably breathe us in and make us a part of your respiratory system.

Kirby Krackle, Random/Mega-Ran, Sci-Fried, and... Us

We will be performing a special guest set on Friday 3/27 at the Hard Rock Cafe along with our musical besties Kirby Krackle, the indomitable Random d.b.a. MegaRan, and those southern geek rockers Sci-Fried. You can pick up tickets here, and I suggest you do.

Absentee Landlords

World, it's 3PO. I slept through my alarm.

We're just awful about updating this page, and you all know it. We've failed to announce an entire album. We put out a free EP, and then we put out a different free EP. We recorded theme songs for two different podcasts. We did a song for an upcoming video game. Bill Beats and I competed (separately) in a music tournament C0splay judged. We ate a lot of food.

We didn't tell you about any of that stuff here, because there were other options available and I'm better at remembering to update them. However, I've added this site to my to-do list, so I'm gonna start doing it.

I'm gonna do it so hard.

I'm not making any promises or anything, but it may actually be worth looking at this bitch every now and again. We cool? Cool.
