Glitterus and Fiction Clemens present an evening of Drinking, Dancing,

DJs, a collection of Artists, and a Hillbilly Duet. Showcasing some of

the West's finest talent…

Musicians: In The Grotto

Squirrel Butter: Funky old-time duet performs hillbilly tunes with

banjo, guitar, and boisterous buckdancin'! Don't miss these guys,

they'll knock your socks off, and maybe yur underpants too!

Crispy [hype] Voted "Most Likely to DJ at the Fiction Clemens Party" in High

School, Crispy's destiny has nearly been fulfilled. Witness the moment

when one man meets his future and boldly proceeds into the


Jesiah, (pants) has been charming the northwest with a wicked boyish

charisma for years. And now he is going to seduce your pants off (to

add to his collection) with some wild western shenanigans.

Thee Bad Pioneer 2000, aka Matty2K, hails from the wild west of the future

where the chickens have run the foxes out of town, where the piggies get

the first course AND the sloppy seconds. This is the land of the Hed, a

strange place to be but one where friends and strangers alike are always

welcome. He'll be bringin' his own sci-fi hoe-down (bros up) to the

downtown to help the fuzzy animals get down. The bounty of his musical

harvest is as is plentiful as the bounty for his head is high....and we do

mean "high".

Artists: In the Velvet Lounge

Josh Wagner will be presenting artwork from his 3-part graphic novel,

"FictionClemens", upstairs in the velvet lounge. Wagner is a

vagabond, novelist, filmmaker, and comic creator who couldn't draw a

stick-man to save his grandma's life. Lucky for his grandma, Josh has

found brilliant artists in Argentina to do his drawing for him. Since

they can't make it, Josh will be showcasing their work, a disturbing

display of the disproportionate and the cartoony... vivid

hallucinogenic landscapes, and characters who wear their souls on

their faces.

Tatiana Gill is an artistic force to be reckoned with, as the

accomplished illustrator of Strange Day fame. Tats is sought out as

an artist due to her masterful yet irreverent abilities to capture

life as hilarity. A skillful-clever artist with a well rounded

portfolio and the best sense of humor this side of the Mississippi.

Freedom Drudge, comic creator, sketch-artist, and tattoo-master, will

be showcasing his work upstairs in the velvet lounge. Freedom's

creation combines a nightmarish love for the monstrous and bizarre

with a uniquely urban flair. From little ditties like "The Sock that

was Mean" to his post-apocalyptic epic "the Spoils", Freedom's mind is

an uncontainable inkwell of creativity and artistic innovation.

Siya Oum will bring her gorgeous pencils and colors to the Velvet

Lounge. Up-and-coming illustrator, designer, and comic artist living

in Seattle, Siya is known for her sophisticated take on anime

stylings. Her current project, "Executive Assistant", a story inspired

by real events between the late 70's and 80's, where senior

executives in Asia began to groom their female executive assistants to

be trained killers – taking the term "corporate warfare" to a new


And finally, Taki Soma, artist of the hit webcomic "You'll Never Die",

will be showcasing her amazing artwork and taking requests for
