Cameos CROWN SHY Edition: @jaboukie @calibanthewitch @anafabrega @sycorax_
We don’t want to reveal too much, and honestly this lineup sells itself: meme queen Bianca Perez aka @yung_nihilist is our MC, Kristin Malossi aka DJ Voices and her crew Working Women on turntables, with performances by Jaboukie Young-White, Ana Fabrega, Cammisa Buerhaus, and Jasmine Gibson.
To warm up for Crown Shy, we asked our performers to share their favorite conspiracy theories, biggest fears, and what books they’re reading. Hope to see you this Saturday! 🎉

What advice would you give to your 13 year old self? Fall Out Boy is going to make a comeback when you’re in college and you’ll be super excited but it won’t feel the same as it originally did so cherish every second.
What’s your favorite conspiracy theory? “That’s Michael Jackson.”
What are your handles? My handle is @calibanthewitch on Instagram.
What advice would you give to your 13 year old self? “You were right.”
What’s your favorite conspiracy theory? My favorite conspiracy theory is about chem trails, because it’s turning the frogs gay. And I’m a frog.
How do you spend your days? I spend my days counseling and running around for finals.
Best thing you saw on the internet this week? Fyre Festival aka. Rich Gang Gulag.
What are you reading right now? I’m reading Legend, Myth, and Magic in the Image of the Artist by Ernst Kris and Otto Kurz.
What’s your favorite conspiracy theory? The real reason the United States changed ISIS to ISIL is because the current administration was freaked out by the religious symbolism of the name ISIS and the psychoanalytic import of the beheadings. The decapitations were a stand in for the American political establishment’s castration anxiety. The fact that American patriarchy was threatened with castration at the hands of a faction sharing the same name as an ancient female pagan deity, Isis, was just too much, so the Obama administration changed the name to ISIL. Fun fact: Isis was the omnipotent Egyptian goddess, an all powerful idol that was subsumed into the holy trinity and demoted to Mary by Christianity.
What are you afraid of? I am afraid that I will never find true love.
How are you preparing for the future? I’m preparing for the future by learning how to dom in the kitchen, aka cook really well. I’ll let you chop some onions though.
