Jonathan Coulton Concerts

Popular geek singer-songwriter Jonathan Coulton, known for his songs about such topics as zombies (“Re: Your Brains”), mad scientists (“Skullcrusher Mountain”), and computer programmers (“Code Monkey”), will be performing two concerts in the area:

I can tell you from personal experience that the Somerville Theatre has already sold out of its allotment of tickets; they advised me to order from Ticketmonster Ticketmaster or to try the box office at the Orpheum Theater in Boston (near the Park Street T station). I was able to buy a ticket from the Orpheum today for only $1 over the ticket price of $25; they said the show had been selling well. If you order online from Ticketmoron Ticketmaster, you will be charged $11.25 in additional fees. I can’t tell you anything about the availability of tickets for the Northampton show other than that the theater’s online purchase fees seem quite reasonable (they don’t use Ticketmugger Ticketmaster).

Yes, it’s a terrible pun. I don’t care. Happy Star Wars Day!

ADMIN: Hey, It’s Been a Year Already!

Actually, it’s been slightly more than a year — the first post for this blog went up on September 16th, 2008. Thanks for reading! 😀

ADMIN: Off to WorldCon!

I’m headed to Montreal for WorldCon starting tomorrow! I’ll be checking email, but I may not post to the blog for a few days. Bye!

My Birthday Wish List!

It’s my birthday! 😀 Oh, you want to give me something? How sweet! May I suggest:

  • Tell a friend about this blog! More readers would be very welcome.
  • Tell me about a good source of event information! I tend to get my information by watching other blogs, signing up for the mailing lists of various bookstores and theatres, etc. I especially need to make sure I’m finding out about events outside of Massachusetts — I don’t want to miss anything. What do you suggest?

Thanks, loyal readers! We will now return to this blog’s irregularly scheduled programming.
