Bios:

**Boog City
http://www.welcometoboogcity.com

Boog City is a New York City-based small press now in its 17th year and East Village community newspaper of the same name. It has also published 35 volumes of poetry and various magazines, featuring work by Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti among others, and theme issues on baseball, women’s writing, and Louisville, Ky. It hosts and curates two regular performance series—d.a. levy lives: celebrating the renegade press, where each month a non-NYC small press and its writers and a musical act of their choosing is hosted at Chelsea’s ACA Galleries; and Classic Albums Live, where up to 13 local musical acts perform a classic album live at venues including The Bowery Poetry Club, Cake Shop, CBGB’s, and The Knitting Factory. Past albums have included Elvis Costello, My Aim is True; Nirvana, Nevermind; and Liz Phair, Exile in Guyville.

**Liv Carrow
http://www.myspace.com/livcarrow

Navel gazing, highly biographical, cathartic lyricism, obnoxious punning, moot metaphor, unabashed self-consciousness, and run-on sentences of self-promotion are qualities nary as compelling as in the case of NYC’s Liv Carrow. Her songs are like the little animals that your 4-year-old nieces and nephews make out of play-doh; lumpy yet distinguishable in form, rudimentary to the point of psychedelic complexity, dry and crumbly on the outside but all kinds of squishy on the inside.

The mysterious and oddly lovable bassist from ecstatically weird acts Huggabroomstik and Griffin and the True Believers takes the scenic back road to your heart with her porch-swing guitar folk songs and clever-ish observations on life, death, love, health food, human reproduction, the unseen world of cosmic currents, awkward crushes, metaphysics, and, everyone’s favorite, despair.

Her influences run the gauntlet from Patsy Cline to Kate Bush to Michael Gira. Her debut album, It’s About Time, recorded and produced by Huggabroomstik co-frontman Dashan Coram, is available through Olive Juice Music.

**CAConrad

**Casey Holford + Daoud Tyler-Ameen
http://www.caseyholford.com/
http://www.myspace.com/artsororityforgirls

Casey Holford was raised on a diet of folk music and comic books in Massachusetts. He started playing piano at 12, picked up his mother’s guitar for coffeehouse and DIY shows at 14, and was performing regularly in the Boston-Providence songwriter circuit by 18. Now, living in Brooklyn at age 27, he has recorded three self-released solo albums, two EPs, and a 7-inch on RiYL records. He moonlights in the bands Outlines, Urban Barnyard, Dream Bitches, and Art Sorority for Girls, playing bass, electric, 12 string, and baritone guitars. Casey is also a prolific producer, helping to document his community by working on projects with fellow bands and songwriters, most recently pop riot Cheese on Bread, visionary Dave Deporis, and upstart Creaky Boards.

Daoud Tyler-Ameen grew up on the lower east side of Manhattan. His songwriting career began in high school with a string of extra-credit projects about literary characters and the life cycles of plants. After graduation he started a new project called the Art Sorority for Girls, a collection of story-songs about the awful messes kids can get themselves into. Daoud’s versatility as a drummer and multi-instrumentalist is the creative glue that has helped to hold Urban Barnyard, Outlines, and Cheese on Bread together. Daoud is working on Art Sorority’s debut long player with Casey, Major Matt Mason USA, and Andrew Hoepfner.

**Eliot Katz
http://www.poetspath.com/exhibits/eliotkatz/

Poet and activist Eliot Katz is the author of five books of poetry, including Unlocking the Exits and When the Skyline Crumbles: Poems for the Bush Years. His forthcoming book, Love, War, Fire, Wind: Looking Out (North America’s Skull), is a collaboration with the artist, William T. Ayton.

**Ben Kreiger
http://www.benkrieger.com/

Ben often claims to be a Brooklyn songwriter. Anyone who meets him, however, can immediately tell that he probably grew up in Cleveland. There was a short-lived campaign in the mid-’80s when everyone in Northeast Ohio had a bumper sticker that said, “New York May Be the Big Apple, But Cleveland’s a Plum!” Ben has been a plum among the apples for 10 years.

In the summer of 2008 Ben took over from Lach as “Jay Leno of the Sidewalk.” He books the club and runs the Open Stage on Monday nights.

His latest CD, Class Dismissed, is a concept record about community and the public school system. It is available through Fortified Records. He records himself and others at his home studio, The Rock Closet. He likes to record rock operas.

**Phoebe Kreutz
http://www.myspace.com/phoebekreutz

Phoebe Kreutz is a boozy floozy with a heart of gold. She sings silly songs about the things she likes best: boys and bars and vikings and tacos.

Growing up in New York’s East Village, Phoebe learned a lot about all these things. She also learned a lot about rhyming from Dr. Seuss and the joys of thinly veiled social commentary from “He-Man” and “The Smurfs.”

Now she’s all grown up and still loving life in the big city. She gets to sing in all kinds of fun places like The Knitting Factory, Fez, Birdland, and The Sidewalk Café. It was there that she found the jolly antifolk scene, which has nurtured and indulged her like a benevolent uncle these past few years. It was also there that she met the boys who would later join with her to become the world’s greatest art-indie-rock band that only sings about animals in the city, Urban Barnyard.

**Frank Sherlock
http://www.writing.upenn.edu/pennsound/x/Sherlock.html

Frank Sherlock is the co-author (with Brett Evans) of Ready-To-Eat Individual, an unofficial State-of-the-City of New Orleans in the Year 1 A.K. (After Katrina). His newest book, entitled Over Here is forthcoming from Factory School in January.

**Nathaniel Siegel

Nathaniel Siegel is a poet, artist, and activist. On Nov. 19, he will be a featured artist at the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation in SoHo. His first chapbook is forthcoming from Portable Press at Yo-Yo Labs.
