Devo Spice Update - 1/17/2012: Friday the 13th, Doctor Who

Devo Spice Update - 1/17/2012: Friday the 13th, Doctor Who, and MarsCon

Hey everyone!

I just came up with the dumbest idea ever!  All you people who call yourselves Devo Spice fans... you can be known as Devotees!  Get it?  Devotees!  Because, you know... ah forget it.  I told you it was dumb.

Anyway, here are some things:

--== MARSCON INFO ==--

Speaking of dumb ideas, a little while ago I decided I wanted to parody Rebecca Black’s infamous song “Friday” and make it about the classic Friday the 13th movies.  So I did just that and released it on the FuMP this past Friday, which was in fact, the 13th.

“Friday (the 13th)” features Vivian Ramone of ShiSho on vocals taking the part of Rebecca Black on the song.  I just appear on that godawful rap bridge in the middle of the song.  And several fans... er, Devotees... make cameos on the song in the background doing various screams and other horror-like sound effects.

People seem to be liking it so far.  Go listen to it and/or download it for free here:

Last month I released a new song about Doctor Who called “I Am The Doctor.”  Well since then a guy by the name of Doctor Don (who is not a Time Lord, unfortunately) made a rather amazing video for the song using clips from the show.  If you’re a Doctor Who fan you owe it to yourself to watch this video.  Go check it out.  Go now.  I’ll wait.

--== MARSCON INFO ==--
The great and powerful Luke Ski has finally released information about the biggest comedy-music event of the year.  MARSCON!

MarsCon is taking place March 9-11 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Bloomington, MN.  Check out this line-up:

Consorium of Genius
The Boobles
Spaff (not performing, just proving he exists)
TV’s Kyle
the great Luke Ski
Devo Spice
Worm Quartet
Power Salad
Cirque du So What?
The Gothsicles
Possible Oscar

If you pre-register now your admission will only run you $45.  After January 31st admission is $60 at the door, so get your tickets now.

To help offset the cost of bringing all these awesome acts to the con Luke has put together a 3 CD fund-raiser album.  Nearly FOUR HOURS OF MUSIC that was recorded at MarsCon last year, both from the main stage and from the Party Bus.

The compilation is available for $20 as an MP3 download, or $30 on 3 CDs (which also includes an instant download).  Go to to order your copy.

The New York Comedy Club is doing a show on the 25th with a college booker who will be there screening new talent.  I want to get in to the college market so I want to perform at this show.  However, I need to bring 4 audience members with me in order to get stage time.  (I hate doing these and normally I wouldn’t, but this is a chance to get on the college circuit.)

I have 1 confirmed and 3 maybes so far.  If you think you can make it to the show please email me.  The more people I bring the more stage time I will get.

Thanks guys!
