Her Space Holiday remains one of the most interesting musicians around. The alias for San Francisco Bay Area musician Marc Blanchi, his career began by playing in hardcore bands including Indian Summer, Mohinder and Calm. After giving the rock & roll thing a shot, he decided that he was more interested in making music in a home studio environment. He released a handful of EPs, toured with Bright Eyes, Bob Mould and Pinback, and remixed tracks for REM, The Faint, Elastica and many more. Yeah, he has been one busy dude!
