Our favorite purveyors of traditional American and Celtic music are back again at DemiCon. Their web site describes them as “a traditional old-time band, play a lively mix of American mountain tunes and Celtic instrumentals. If you like music of the 1800s as it was played in 1975, you’ll love this band!” They will have special guests Knotty Dog playing with them as well.
Beth Kinderman is a geek-folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her literate, clever songs about topics including Star Wars, cannibals, Farscape, Firefly, religion, and zombies have earned her comparisons to Jonathan Coulton and Leslie Fish. Frequently accompanied by her band, the Player Characters, she can be found performing at bars, coffee shops, pagan festivals, and sci-fi conventions across the Midwest. Her first CD, "All Of My Heroes Are Villains," was released in March. She makes her solo Iowa debut this weekend at Demicon.
Orckes And Trolles
“A vocal and instrumental group specializing in Medieval, Renaissance, and Celtic songs,” Orckes and Trolles also describe themselves as “alternative madrigal”. They’re silly, they’re fun, you can even sing along.
Adam Stemple & Lojo Russo
Adam Stemple has been playing music since the age of 6, first cello, then piano, then guitar. He plays most weekends with his Irish group, The Tim Malloys, and spends his days writing novels (has 3 out right now) and playing & teaching poker. Lojo is an old friend of Demicon, and we are just DAMN happy to have her joining us.
Bryan Baker (Kaklick Martin) makes some music that can be best described as the honkey tonk meets the metaverse, in the album "Roadhouse Ranch and Saloon" he sprinkles ideas like cybersex, furries and pose balls right along with the sawdust, traditional and futuristic at the same time. He also offers straight ahead rock along with social and political commentary in his album “Big Bad World”. Kaklick took the stage in Second Life for the first time back in late 2005, so he is among SL’s veteran performers and an early evangelist for the live music scene.
Possible Oscar is a Minneapolis, MN based comedy music act that specializes in original and parody songs in rock and hip hop styles. The band formed in 2005 with former members of the atomic rock band The Nick Atoms with the intention of exploring a creative direction that began in The Nick Atoms' waning days. Their musical topics range from video games to nerd love, with stops at comic books and notable Hollywood movie sound effects. They also enjoy wearing T-shirts with their band name on them.
Filk gone horribly right. This is what happens when you take 4 musicians from completely different gene pools and make them play instruments that they aren't usually seen playing. Take some classic filk, some classic rock, some punk rock and some 80s hard rock and what do you get? Say it three times (as) fast and you've got Toyboat!
And rocking the main stage Saturday night,
... and note the late addition to the 3pm show
