Nerd rock, ahoy!

Jonathan Coulton is coming to town!

He’s the folk rocker you like even though you hate folk rock. All his songs are about super villains, zombies, web coding, and the Kraken. Sound too hipster-y? Well, he doesn’t come off that way. The man’s style is sincere and literate, and he’s recommended by acclaimed humorist, Daily Show regular, and regular collaborator John Hodgman. There’s an endorsement even troubadour-haters can appreciate.

    And he’s the same guy who did that amazing cover of Baby Got Back a year or so ago.

    And the same guy who wrote the song at the end of Portal (videogame in Valve’s Orange Box). The most amazing videogame song EVER.
