Lookee lookee: we’ve got some new shows scheduled on the Left Coast next month; and if we do say so ourselves, they’re going to be awesomesauce…
PART 1: NERDS & MUSIC
First off: two shows, in Seattle and Portland, that we are labeling “Nerds & Music” (get it?), which will be an evening of music performances both by and for nerds. (“Normals” are welcome, too) You can think of them as sort of mini-w00tstocks—except without Adam and Wil, and with fewer performers, and with all music acts, and not 4-5 hours long, and not called “w00tstock”. But otherwise, exactly the same.
Who will be performing in them, you ask? Good question, we answer; these shows will feature our good friends Hank Green (he of the vlogbrothers and the Nerdfighters and the 83,762 other awesome projects) and Mike Phirman (he of the Mike Phirman and Hard ‘n Phirm). I know, right? Will there be other surprise guests? Maybe! It’s not for us to say. (Well, yeah, it is; but we’re just not sure yet)
UPDATE: just added to Portland show: comedy/nerd/sister duo The Doubleclicks!
Wednesday, March 23 – Nerds & Music (with Hank Green & Mike Phirman)
The Triple Door, Seattle, WA – 7:30 pm
Friday, March 25 – Nerds & Music (with Hank Green, Mike Phirman & The Doubleclicks)
Aladdin Theater, Portland, OR – 8 pm
PART 2: WIL WHEATON VS. PAUL AND STORM
As you might possibly guess (if you are incredibly perceptive), we are doing a show with our old w00tstock fellow-traveler Wil Wheaton. This time, we’ll meet on the battlefields of Los Angeles at one of our favorite venues everwhereplace: Largo at the Coronet. There will be music from us, stories from Wil, more special surprise guests, and pirates everywhere. This will be one for the ages, folks. (All ages, that is) (Get it?)
Tuesday, March 29 – Wil Wheaton vs. Paul and Storm
Largo at the Coronet, Los Angeles, CA – 7:30 pm
I am really happy you are coming to Portland. Just a question – how, um… family friendly are your shows? My ten year old is a huge nerdfighter. How awesome would it be if her first concert was Hank Green?
Wait – I just read the name of Mike’s band and I think that answers my question. Have a great evening in Portland! If you come back in another 5 – 10 years, I’ll bring my girl out. 🙂
McMinnville’s #1 supporter of Nerdfigheria will be in attendance! Hank ROCKS!
Of course you’ll be in Seattle on a Wednesday night. Switch Portland and Seattle dates!
Why? Whyyyyyyyy? Of *course* you skip right past the Bay Area. Rarrrrrg.
