Eben Brooks is “The Working Class Superhero of San Diego”: geeky musician par excellence, gamer, comic book reader, science fiction lover, and the man responsible for the squamous, rugose filk song “Hey There Cthulhu”. He performs original and filk songs on a variety of geeky topics, such as superheroes, cyberpunk, magic, minstrelry, literature, gaming, comic books, eldritch horror, science fiction television shows, and the dangers of teleportation. He also performs more “normal” songs about human existence, love, death, and workplace accidents, among other topics.Having started his singing career in the Society for Creative Anachronism, he almost immediately graduated to performing at conventions. His first band, The Wild Oats, performed at San Diego Comic Con for several years in the 1990’s and also at the 1998 WesterCon in San Diego. Eben has performed at (and continues to perform at) both ConDor and ConJecture in San Diego, and for the last three years he has had the honor of sharing the stage with Allison Lonsdale at the Gam3rCon Rooftop Concert! He has also been invited to perform at various conventions around the country, including LunaCon in New York in 2010, MisCon in Missoula, Montana in both 2009 and 2010 (where he was Filk Guest of Honor in 2010), LosCon in Los Angeles in 2010, 2011, and 2012, and RadCon 6A in February 2013 as their Music Guest of Honor!
