Schaffer the Darklord (or STD) is a New York City-based rapper, drummer and

comedian with material best-suited for nerdy and/or hedonistic audiences. With manic

energy fueling a cartoonishly commanding stage presence, STD skewers such topics

as substance abuse, sexual compulsion, urban anxiety and obsessive cat-enthusiasm.

Imagine a Frankenstein-esque monster assembled from equal parts Bill Hicks, Adam

Yauch, Joey Ramone and Prince, stitched together inside the shell of a maniacal heavy

metal ex-patriot. STD has released nine albums and is a founding member of the

touring nerdcore hip-hop collective known as the Four-Eyed Horsemen, along with MC

Lars, Mega Ran and MC Frontalot. When he’s not on the road, he produces the NYC

burlesque/wrestling hybrid event called “TasselMania.” STD continues to write, record

and perform with great frequency and has no intention of stopping until his rock and

roll lifestyle destroys him.
