Lemon Demon Wiki

The band at Lemonic Demonade 2006.

The band rehearsing.

In live performances, Lemon Demon currently consists of Neil Cicierega on vocals and keyboard, Alora Lanzillotta on bass guitar, Neil's brother-in-law Chooch (the titular Charles of Charles & Leah Forever) on guitar, Greg Lanzillotta on drums, and sometimes Dave Kitsberg on guitar. Drums were originally prerecorded tracks played by Professor iPod before the band obtained a human drummer, Tony Wry. In November 2008, Tony moved to Detroit, temporarily leaving Lemon Demon without a drummer. Alora's brother, Greg Lanzillotta would later replace Tony. A secondary guitarist by the name of Dave Kitsberg would also be added to the line-up.

Lemon Demon's live performances have mostly been at open mics and have also included a performance at Neil's sister's wedding and performances on Neil's sporadic internet radio show, Hooray Radio. The trio version of Lemon Demon made their live debut at Awesomefest 2006 (see below). They've also peformed at the anime convention in Detroit called Youmacon annually from 2007 to 2012. Ever since their latest peformance at Youmacon in November 2, 2012, the live band hasn't peformed anymore gigs since.

Some songs, like Elvis Porn and Charles and Leah Forever, were available as live recordings long before studio versions were produced.
