Monday, May 8, 6-7:45 PM

LASER is a trans musician, performer, and author. His music “challenges the patriarchy, champions marginalized voices, and finds emotional resonance in everything from robots to breakfast foods.” He has toured the US, Australia, and Europe as front person of the Doubleclicks, and has racked up over 4 million YouTube views amongst their large and beautiful grassroots audience.

Laser co-wrote the musical Teaching a Robot to Love, a sci-fi story about the trans experience, with E. Aaron Wilson. The musical’s concept album charted on Billboard and its sold-out, award-winning debut run took place at the 2022 Hollywood Fringe Festival!

As a speaker and author, Laser helps independent artists get money and attention for their creative projects. He has raised more than $2 million using Kickstarter and Patreon for comics, games, and music, and is the author of Crowdfunding for Musicians, a how-to book for indie artists who want to achieve their dreams without gatekeepers.

Laser hosts the actual-play twitch show and podcast Gosh Darn Fiasco and co-hosts film podcast The Best Idea of All Time. He hosts variety shows and performs musical improv in Los Angeles from time to time.
