Current Events

November 29, 2011 - GIG: Mon, Dec 5th, 8pm
We'll be the opener for another awesome show at the North Star Bar in Philly, this time with The Alex Skolnick Trio and this local badass, Trevor Gordon Hall.

We'll be trotting out our "rock set" this time to be the loud assholes on acoustic/jazz night, and tickets are half-off right now (maybe they aren't, but that doesn't stop marketing departments around the world from saying as much).

What more can we say to get you to come? Free beer? (again, possibly not true)

August 13, 2011 - GIG: Tues, Sep 27, 8pm
We'll be ragin' at the North Star Bar in Philly on the 27th of September, opening for The Aristocrats, which is made up of uber-players Bryan Beller, Guthrie Govan, and Marco Minnemann.

This is a must-see show for anyone in the area that knows us or hates the guy in Amadeus that said, "Too many notes."
The Aristocrats

June 10, 2011 - Pimpin' the Kronos.
Big thanks to Korg USA for letting me say a few words about the Kronos on their Facebook page.

June 6, 2011 - Everybody loves new shit.
Tim's got his Korg Kronos 61.
Shawn's now checking out the Fractal Axe-FX.

If this next album sucks, well, we suck.

January 13, 2011 - Shawn at NAMM, Tim on Korg.
If you're at the NAMM show, be sure to say hi to Shawn. He should be around the Vigier or Bogner booths, for the most part.

Oh, and Tim's got a Korg Kronos on order.

December 14, 2010 - Multipick Technique on iTunes
Well, this only took forever: Multipick Technique on iTunes.
Be sure to rate it as 5-stars within iTunes. Or the beer-iest. Or something cool like that.

September 17, 2010 - ING Run
Wake up and come watch us at the Philly ING Run, where we'll be playing sans-Tim (sooooo much tighter that way).

What, you don't run?

July 30, 2010 - Red Bear picks
Shawn is now playing and endorsing hand-crafted Red Bear picks.

According to Shawn, he can now lay waste to more Johnny Pop-Punks per minute than ever before.

Special thanks to Dave and Monica Skowron at Red Bear Trading Co.

May 13, 2010 - Shawn's B-Day
Dr. Shawn M. Christie (he is not a doctor) turns 21 today (he is also not 21).

We'll be partying it up in Philly tonight. Text him. He loves that stuff.

Brunette, Shawn, Blonde

August 22, 2009 - YouTube, Twitter
Want to be entertained? Watch us play live on our Youtube channel.
There are very good reasons for cutting Tim out of some of the shots.
You'll have to see us in person to find out why.

You can also now keep up with our happenings via Twitter.

July 13, 2009 - Facebook, ING Run LIVE!
Yes, we're on Facebook.
Get on over there and make fun of us on our wall or view some new pics. This is as interactive as the web gets (without a credit card, anyway).

Also, come out and watch us play for way too long at the Annual ING Run. We'll play around 9:00 AM somewhere on the course...location TBA. We had such a great time last year wathcing the runners rock-out with us as they ran, jogged or walked by.
Live, baby!

June 22, 2009 - Zeroesque live at the Northstar
Philadelphia's Northstar Bar is the place to be tonight (Monday, June 22nd) as Zeroesque will be rocking it w/ Tim "Tito" Lloyd on drums!

We're slated to play at 8:20, though "The Art of Prog VII" show supposedly begins (doors?) at 7:00.

We look forward to seeing you there!
Dodge the shards of stick debris!

Live gig.
Come drink.

April 16, 2009 - New gig at the Troc, Bogner rocks!
Zeroesque will be playing live at the Trocadero Theatre main stage on Sunday, June 14th (doors at 6:00, show at 6:30). This will be with a few other bands, and advance tickets are discounted to just $15.

Please come out and don't hesitate to contact us for tickets!

artist! Special thanks to Jim Robbins at Bogner.
Live, baby!

April 8, 2009 - News, Pics
Shawn "Partmaster" and Tim have been working on riffs, licks and ideas for the next stay tuned for more Zeroesque instrumental absurdity.

We've also received a few pics from an old gig, which is always fun.

And there's always a review that makes us smile:
"Impressive and multi-finger soloing by Christie, delivering many notes per second by the way." - MENNO VON BRUCKEN FOCK

November 10, 2008 - FREE CD, Gig at Cherrywood
We will be playing the Cherrywood in Blackwood, NJ on Sunday, November 30th @ 7:00 PM. Everyone in attendance will receive a FREE CD w/ their $15 cover charge (see, we'll make it worth your while). This is a must-see show w/ an opening act and plenty of swag to be had!
Shawn may stick his tongue out at you, too.

September 7, 2008 - Reviews
Aside from the nice review in 20th Century Guitar mag, a couple of reviews have popped-up on the new album: We love this kind of stuff: "My main problem with this album is that it sounds too jazz fusion."
This is also just whacky:

July 17, 2008 - New Gig and MySpace Song
The band will be playing the ING Philadelphia Distance Run on Sunday, September 21st. We'll have a playing time up shortly, so mark your calendar and come out to support a good cause...and Zeroesque!
In addition to the songs on the sounds page, we have also put "Slippery Slope" up on MySpace. This is the tune that Vinnie Moore smokes a guitar solo on.

March 19, 2008 - New Disc: Done!
After a long writing and recording period for the band, Tim has spent several months mixing and mastering the second album to his satisfaction (nearly). "Multipick Technique" is 10 tunes in 56 minutes and we should be getting them back from DiscMakers any day now. Feel free to drop us a line if you want it direct from us, or just wait for it to be in the online shops. We're sorry to have been away for so long! Gigs and more to follow!

July 15, 2007 - The Vinman Cometh.
Tim has begun recording on Vinnie Moore's upcoming solo release, and hopes to contribute favorably to a long line of Vinnie's influential and truly excellent instrumental rock albums. Keep up on the progress at!

June 13, 2007 - Welcome America!
Whoa...another Zeroesque gig! We'll be playing directly after vocal supergroup Take 6 on July 1st in Philadelphia. Come on out to the Independence Center if you can!
It's also Tim's B-day today. Buy him a cold drink.
Welcome America

March 20, 2007 - Multipick Technique
The new album we've been working on is in it's final stages - about 90% complete. Funny name, huh?
We're very proud of the compositions on this one. Although the chops-heavy stuff is right in there, the melodies and harmonies have taken center stage...and it's a good thing. Even the pre-pro tracks are getting heavy rotation in our own CD players.
Guests soloists this time around include guitar bad-asses Marco Sfogli and Derryl Gabel.
We might even have some horns, too...hmm...

January 31, 2007 - Giggin' It Up.
We'll be rockin' out at The Muzic Wizard in Malton, NJ over the next two nights (Fri/Sat). This is a double bill w/ Scott McGill's FreakZoid.
Hope to see you there!

Scott says you stink
