What’s on the Other Side Lyric Video

I guess it’s been a while. Sorry about that.

What’s new?

We all survived the holidays, as well as the Thomas Fire. It was amazing to see our whole town pull together, and sobering to see how much was lost. We’re a strong community, and, you know, not broken.

Maybe it’s more appropriate to say we went through this, and came out on the other side.

We… leave no friend behind, and that means you?

I’ll try to stop shoehorning lyrics into this post now.

Anyway, check out this amazing Lyric Video that Claire Flores put together! (You already know her design work, but have you seen her motion graphics? Well, get on that!)

Huge thanks to Gaslight Gathering for sponsoring this video during the Kickstarter campaign.

That’s it for now. More announcements soon!

The Whovian People

The Velveteen Band loves cosplay. That should go without saying; just look at us!

Cosplayers inspire us by doing something we’ve always strived for: they envision a world more exciting or colorful than our own, and then physically embody it so the rest of us can see what they’re looking at, and what we’ve been missing.

This became clear to us while filming our 2014 Comic-Con video.  In particular, the Doctor Who cosplayers stood out. This is a group that celebrates intellect over violence, creativity in all things, and the richness and diversity of other cultures. Rock on!

So, when we went back this year, we wanted to do something a little special for them…

The Velveteen Band presents a mashup between Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People” and the Doctor Who theme song (originally by Ron Grainer), with lyrics by us about Doctor Who cosplayers.

Much love to everyone we managed to drag into our crazy world for a few minutes. You’re why we did this.

You may download the song for free from this link on SoundCloud. You will also be able to stream our whole album there. Please do, and tell your friends about us!

(by Aaron Levitz, Jason Amelio, Claire Flores and Dan Flores):

I wanna watch you, I’d love to meet you.
I’ll wait in panel lines just to greet you.
But what to wear at the Comic-Con?
So many cosplay options, you can’t go wrong!

The Whovian People, The Whovian People.
are all dressing up as the good and evil.
Silence, Ood, or Cybermen!
Angels, Doctors, Companions!

Rolling Daleks, so full of hate…
Brandish those plungers! Exterminate!!

Hey! You! Alons-y!!
I’ve got a screwdriver. Follow me!
Hey! You, watching BBC!
If you’re the companion, I know what I’ll be.

Those creepy statues drive me to drink.
Don’t look away. Don’t even blink.

The Whovian People, The Whovian People,
are all dressing up as the good and evil.
Machines and monsters, ready to go.
Call boxes face the void. Geronimo!


Rolling Daleks, so full of hate…
Brandish those plungers! Exterminate!

The Whovian People (aahh) [x4]
