VARIOUS ARTISTS

SONGS FOR “CRAP KINGDOM”

Fifty People’s Favorite Thing

You may know DC Pierson from the sketch comedy group DERRICK, their movie “Mystery Team,” his first novel The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To, or the Allstate commercial in which he rear-ends an older gentleman and then speaks in the voice of 24′s Dennis Haysbert.

His new novel Crap Kingdom came out Thursday, March 7th. It’s a young adult novel about a high school kid who finds out he’s the Chosen One in a magical fantasy realm, then discovers the magical fantasy realm in which he’s the Chosen One is really, really crappy.

He released Songs For Crap Kingdom, a collection of songs inspired by the novel, by some of indie rock and hip hop’s favorite artists to celebrate the book coming out.

Includes tracks by: Ted Leo, Free Energy, Jean Grae, The Rosebuds, Advance Base (formerly Casiotone for the Painfully Alone), The Ettes, Sean Nelson (of Harvey Danger)

(related to projects from 2010 and then also 2011)

SONGS FOR “THE BOY WHO COULDN’T SLEEP AND NEVER HAD TO”

Fifty People’s Favorite Thing

DC Pierson is the author of “The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To”, his first novel, which is being published by Vintage / Anchor on 1/26/10.  He’s also a member of the popular Internet comedy group DERRICK Comedy, whose sketch videos have been viewed over 100 million times online.  Their first feature film “Mystery Team”premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, is currently touring the country, and will be released on DVD by Lionsgate in May of 2010.  He curated these original songs by his friends (including Jason Anderson, and Donald Glover as “MCDJ” of DERRICK/NBC’s Community – on which DC has also had several cameo parts) because, as we all know, the best part of doing anything is making a mixtape to go along with it.

Includes tracks by: Jason Anderson, Hi Ho Silver Oh, mc DJ (Donald Glover), Matt Berger & Melissa Lusk, Emilyn Brodsky & Anthony Da Costa
