Buffering the Vampire Slayer: Podcast Spectacular with Music! Trivia! Fangs!
Kristin Russo & Jenny Owen Youngs, hosts of the new, noteworthy, and bloodthirsty podcast Buffering the Vampire Slayer, will be bringing their fangs, music, and Buffy trivia to Union Hall! Performing all twelve original songs from Season One of the podcast (each recapping an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), this will be an evening full of musical vampire-y goodness, 1990s nostalgia, and of course, selected clips from the iconic Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. Featuring special guest performances, prizes, and a blood-sucking contest (JUST KIDDING!), there's really no better way to ring in the holiday season.

Buffering the Vampire Slayer is a weekly podcast in which your hosts Jenny Owen Youngs and Kristin Russo discuss Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one episode at a time. Every installation of the podcast concludes with an original episode recap song, written by Jenny & Kristin.

Buffering the Vampire Slayer debuted its first episode on Sept 14th, was featured in the “New & Noteworthy” section of iTunes, and was also featured on Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List.”
