Presidential Candidate, Filmaker, Activist, Performance Artist and all around man of mystery VERMIN SUPREME will be making his way to Strange Matter after the DC innauguration to continue his campaign for A Free Pony For Every American, a promise that he hopes to soon deliver! He'll be joined on tour by ROB POTYLO, an acoustic singer-songwriter, comedian, director, writer, and more who you're likely to be familiar with at least one item of his body of work! They'll be joined by local Communist rock act MAXIMUM ZERO. Doors aren't until 8pm, but during Happy Hour, while Vermin is out campaigning around town, we will be screening his new documentary "Who Is Vermin Supreme? An Outsider Odyssey," to help you familiarize yourself with his complete body of work and to turn on the uninitiated to Mr. Supreme's history! Below are full bios for both performers!!


VERMIN SUPREME:
"There were harsh political realities when President for Life VERMIN SUPREME The First took office. At the time of his ascent to the White House there were over 300,000,000 Americans in America's previous borders. At the time there were only 200,000 ponies in the whole country.

It was a recipe for civil unrest. These were not just political realities, these were reality realities. There was a very stark choice to make. On the table, would it be the mass execution of some 299,7000+ Americans in order to achieve proper pony/ human parity ...or something else.

Although there were some drawbacks to consider, mostly they were merely questions of ethics and public relations. The population was demanding their ponies…Ponies that were nowhere in sight. It was a time of heightened international tensions. No one would have blamed Tyrant Supreme if he had ordered the National Dental Guard to carry out a full-scale massacre of the civilian population. It was high time actually. The veneer of civility, that had protected Americans from such real political unrest for quite some time, was wearing thin. The quaint and oft repeated notion that, "It can't happen here", was truly just a lack of imagination. It didn't help at all, that recently installed Dictator Forever Vermin Supreme was completely and utterly insane. How this deranged hobo made it all the way into the White House was still not completely understood" – from his book "I Pony"

ROB POTYLO:
Rob Potylo (Poe-Til- Low) Is truly Alternative music comedy at its Best. A musician playing hilarious songs on an upside down guitar Rob looks like no other comedian out there. Roseanne Barr is quoted as saying "His songs are funny and deep."

With over 10 years of performing at venues all around the Country including The Comedy Store in LA, Caroline's Times Square, The Wilbur Theater in Boston. On top of 1000s of performances on the streets... Including playing to an NYPD Lady Cop to the tune of 3 Million Views during Occupy Wall Street.

Rob also created a heavy metal character named Robby Roadsteamer. In which Rob fronts a comedy metal band and screams at people in full wrestler costume. His song "I Put A Baby In You;" received millions of views and was featured on VH1's Best Week Ever.

Rob has also created a reality series "Quiet Desperation" in which he showcases over 300 artists in a Mockumentary style show that has spanned six years. Some of the alumni have gone on to Conan, Letterman, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, IFC, and more! It doesn't get anymore American or Alternative than is does with Rob Potylo!
