Release of 28 Years Later & FILMPOCALYPSE!

One hell of a month. Time to catch up. My comedy special Brock Wilbur: 28 Years Later was released and is available for download through the site, as well as iTunes, Amazon, and Google Music. I got a few requests for the music we used, so here's a free link to download the songs I recorded, including my attempt at jamming all of the Goblin stuff into one track: Soundtrack Folder Download. Followed my release with a bit of support touring, including the Best Fish Taco One Year Blowout and a trip up to San Fran with Sofiya Alexandra and Matt Monroe. Got to open for W. Kamau Bell and here's a photo...
