Patti Rothberg - Max Vernon
Dan Fishback & Max Vernon "Playwright, producer, performance artist, and anti-folk poster boy Dan Fishback has crafted a solo debut that's smart, silly, and serious by turns. Sweet Chastity explores what it means to be a brainy exile in a brawny, beautiful gay guyville. Dan's eclectic arrangements, quirky delivery, communal recording spirit, and wicked way with words make him more Stephin Merritt than mopey Morrissey. And though he takes aim at the empty-headed pretty boy, lyrics like "I'd be a slut if I was hot / I'd be the kind of boy I hate" show Dan also is willing to tell on himself."-The Advocate Performance artist Dan Fishback has been making plays and records in NYC since 2003. With his twee, anti-folk band Cheese On Bread, he has toured Europe and North America, and released albums in the United States and Japan. His third full-length solo album, "Mammal," will drop in late 2010.
