Jonathan Coulton rocks. Period. This is a fact, not an exclamatory statement. No exclamation point needed. Coulton did the closing credits song for Portal, which might be the best video game song ever. He did some guest bits on the show with zefrank. You should check him out at his site. I won’t even seriously try to describe his stuff, just think of a singer/ songwriter/ guitar player who has some serious geek/nerd cred. You can download a bunch of his music for free if you want to listen before you buy. You must listen to Re: Your Brains.
Anyway, the point of this post is while bumping around on his site today, I noticed he uses Eventful to track interest in cities he might play. So you should totally click the above widget and demand that Mr. Coulton travel to Lawrence (or Kansas City) to play a gig. I want to see him live, and so do you. Even if you don’t know it yet.
