Oct. 20, 2016: EBASS and Nico Rivers/Ignition Comics/Garbage Point/Horror Writers of Maine

[L-r] Emily Graham-Handley, Nico Rivers, and Hailey Magee
Hailey Magee is back for our monthly EBASS segment. We talk about some of the "old school" promoting methods like hitting shows, posting fliers, and general word of mouth, and if these still have a place where some people measure the attendance based on the Facebook event pages.
Later, Nico Rivers and Emily Graham-Handley play some great tunes for us, and we learn about Nico's Live From Nowhere music series and his many, many shows.

Corey Sawyer of Ignition Comics has a brand new series out, "Rapture," a story about a world where everyone has the potential to develop powers based on a flight-or-fight response to situations. He debuted this at Granite-State Comic-Con and it's gotten some rave reviews since then. Hear about the creative process that brought this title into being and the many minds behind it.

The band Garbage Point is next, and you can expect a great show from them on Halloween at the Haunted Ballroom at Once in Somerville. This horror-themed band talks about their favorite slashers, and an upcoming CD release.

BONUS: The last installment in the Blackout Bootleg series, Max talks to the folks at Horror Writers of Maine, who were at the recent Granite-State Comic-Con.
