LIB'ing Legends

LIB’ING Legends: Kyrian Bobeerian

Like a Saturday morning cartoon come alive, there’s really nobody else quite like Kyrian Bobeerian. His showmanship at the SitCommune has been a beloved staple of the festival over the last few years and his silly subject matter and mostly mouth-made music has brought with it international media attention and respect among his zany, co-starring peers. He beatboxes, raps and rocks a puppet while deejaying in a TV-shaped spaceship. Better known by his on-stage moniker “Paragon”, Kyrian plays the part of a cyber-unicorn-tron from the planet OnceUpona, with the theatric appeal of a young Dr. Seuss on Sesame Street. In addition to masterminding a hysterical show, he actually designs and assembles the living room wonderland that viewers are transported into during his performances. Paragon covers family-fun topics like brushing your teeth and the wonders of tea, but he also delves into ideas like making friends. In immersive wizardry, Kyrian has kept us grooving and giggling in the after hours for the last three years, easily making The Fungineers a fast favorite both for the whole LIB family and for festies far and wide.

Tell us about your first experience contributing at LIB.

It was great! Opening the bamboo stage on Sunday, we were nervous that not many people would show up but it was packed! There was a super-hero brunch birthday party! We had stage diving tea bags and tried out some new stuff for the first time which was exciting!

 

What do you think makes LIB different from other festivals?

The production is so on point! everyone that works at Do LaB and the stages are on it and nice and organized! so many festivals are disorganized or don’t care about treating artists nicely and its always a pleasure to work with Do LaB!

 

What’s a piece of advice you would give to someone coming to LIB for the first time?

Bring some costumes! dressing up is the quickest way to add vibes and excitement to your and everyone’s experience! get crazy! hit the thrift store/ vintage store and step outside of your comfort zone

 

If you could perform with anyone on the LIB’17 Lineup who would it be and why?

So many good options! we have collaborated and met a good amount of people on the lineup since we been in the festival game for over 12 years! but I would say Kaytranada and or Troyboi

 

Describe LIB in three words or less.

Lighting in a Bottle! haha jokes, FUN FUN FUN

 

What are you currently working on?

In a new series by Do LaB, we take a walk down the immersive side of memory lane with the co-creating characters that have returned to Lightning in a Bottle time and again with a full-fledged world in tow. To hold onto those moments that transport us to other realms and deepen our connection to one another, we commemorate the greats who made them possible in a weekly interview series that we like to call LIBing Legends.
