Devo Spice Update - 5/7/2012
Woah! Somebody’s putting on a comedy music festival in New York City! I hope they have better luck than I did with The Oddfest...
--== NY FUNNY SONGS FEST ==--
Comedy musician Jessica Delfino has put together the first annual New York Funny Songs Festival! The festival is taking place June 7-10 at various venues around Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
I will be performing at a comedy music showcase on Friday, June 8th along with Rob Paravonian, Carla Rhodes, and more. This is happening at Casa Mezcal at 86 Orchard St. I will also be doing one song on Saturday night as part of an event called 50 Funny Songs which is taking place at Tammany Hall at 152 Orchard St.

--== AWARDS I QUALIFY FOR ==--
I know, I know, it’s blatant and shameless and grammatically crappy but I refuse to nominate myself for these things, so that’s something, right?
The Logan Awards are now accepting nominations for the 2012 awards. These are the only comedy music awards in existence (that I know of). The 2012 ceremony will take place at DeepSouthCon (http://dsc50huntsville.com) and will be hosted by Dr. Demento. Any comedy song or video released in 2011 qualifies, and many of my qualifying songs have already been suggested, so I think I’m good here. But there’s also The Parsec Awards.
The Parsec Awards are also now accepting nominations. The FuMP won the Parsec in 2009 which was the first year they included a music category. There’s also a comedy category. So feel free to head over to http://www.parsecawards.com and nominate either The FuMP, The Funny Music Podcast, and/or Manic Mondays. I would really appreciate it.
--== BALTICON ==--
BaltiCon is a few weeks away now and I finally got some information about my concert that I can pass on to you good folks. I’ll be performing Sunday evening at 5:00 pm. I’ll be sharing a table with Rob Balder which I think is downstairs in Artist’s Alley this time, which is dangerously close to the con suite.
BaltiCon is taking place May 25-28 in Baltimore, MD. http://balticon.org
That’s all, folks.
