The Mystic Krewe is excited to present another of our amazing Live From the PinChurch shows, this time…
It’s a NERD ROCK TAKEOVER!
The Consortium of Genius are an industrial-strength powerhouse featuring four cerebral miscreants and a wise-cracking robot who jolt their audience into staggering submission. The resulting evil brainchild is part musical showcase, part sketch comedy, and all hi-tech magic!
C.O.G. debuted at a science fiction con (N.O.S.F.F.F.’96) and have gone on to perform at many large and small fannish events through the years: Dragon*Con (1998 and 2006), CoastCon (2001 and 2011), BabelCon (2008 2009), New Orleans Worst Film Festival (1998), Exoticon (2000), The House of Shock (2001-today), Fear Fest (2007), Ancient City Con (2010), Wizard World Comic Con (2011, 2012), Nerdapalooza (2011), Marscon (2012), Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus (2011, 2012, 2015), World Steam Expo (2012), Contraflow (2012, 2013), Pensacon (2014), and NOLA Time Fest (2013, 2015, 2016), a convention co-launched by the Consortium of Genius itself!
The group regularly tops the nerd-rock charts, with eight songs to date aired by ‘Dr. Demento’ on his national radio show and a #1 single for 20 straight weeks on the Mad Music Archive with ‘They Said I Was Mad’.
The Consortium of Genius have released four CD’s to date: “Free Brains and Dead Bodies” (2000), “In C.O.G. We Trust” (2004) ‘Music For Supervillains’ (2010), featuring a tie-in comic book as well as such guest stars as bassist Sean Yseult of White Zombie and Matt Bruson of Kingom of Sorrow/Crowbar, and Strange Transmissions From Uranus” (2015), an entire album of favorite covers performed by the group. C.O.G.’s first DVD, “History of Future Civilization” (2003), is a compilation of the group’s video output from 1997-2003, including concert footage, music videos, commercials, and their award winning short film ‘C.O.G. vs. the Phantom.’ The C.O.G. are currently working on their next DVD, as well as production of their self-titled TV show, while they pursue a network contract to produce the show professionally. Meanwhile, the C.O.G. are also the subject of a self-titled online webcomic, readable at www.cogcomics.thecomicseries.com
“The music is raucous and irreverent, and fun to listen to as the video and light show dazzles your eyez. Sexy lab assistants in short white lab coats. Science. Technology. World domination. Everything you could ever expect from the term ‘rock show.’ Best show ever performed in the universe.” – The Charming Prince blog
