You may recognize Publicist as Sebastian Thomson from the hugely influential band Trans Am, as well as the seminal acts Weird War, and Dead Kids. He loves making music with his friends but he also loves to make music on his own. As he once said “I love making music with my friends but I also love making music on my own.” Publicist exists somewhere between DC, NYC, and London, after Sebastian decided it’s better to spend money on plane tickets than on rent. Publicist has played gigs in LA, San Francisco, Baltimore, DC, Glasgow, Dublin, Leeds, Bristol etc. This is super electro dance joy – can you smell the glamour?
