Norm Sherman recently returned from python hunting in the Everglades. He caught some sweet tropical fish that have teeth. A Peabody graduate, Norm has a repertoire that includes country, hip-hop, pop ballads and bluegrass, most of which have something to do with cryptozoological creatures and/or woodland animals’ production of illicit substances. He also curates the multi-award winning Sci-Fi/Fantasy ‘zine The Drabblecast.

The Neo-Fascist Nursery Troupe Players, a New York City-based off-shoot of the much-exalted Aztec Economy, have been singing the praises of all your favorite dictators, from Napoleon to Amin to Pinochet, for a good 6-10 months now.

Dave K. is everyone’s favorite writer who happens to look like a Hell’s Angel involved in a crystal meth ring. He’s up for a Baker Artist Award this year!

The AcaHolics are a local 20+-member a capella singing group. All recent graduates of UMBC, they have performed throughout the Baltimore/D.C. Area, most recently at It’s Finally Happening with Nolan and Ken. With A Vengeance.

Community Center is quite simply the greatest band in Baltimore. You’re bound to have your heartstrings plucked and your feet picked up as they tap along to the driving beat and soaring melodies of this eclectic gaggle of gypsies.
