More Spectacular Information:
The geeky goodness kicks off with Bri Pruett! She is a stand-up comic of all disciplines, performing wherever anyone will listen -- usually in and around the Pacific Northwest in theaters, bars, casinos, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the All Jane No Dick Comedy Festival. Pruett is the sidekick/director of original talk/variety show Late Night Action with Alex Falcone, and has opened for comedians like NBC's Ron Funches, MTV's Sarah Schaeffer, SNL's Fred Armisen, and Kids in the Hall's Kevin McDonald. You can see her performing with her improvised musical ensemble Pipes and hosting a stand-up showcase every other Saturday at Curious Comedy Theater in Portland, Oregon.
Next up is the inimitable Unwoman, a San Francisco-based solo cellist-singer-songwriter. With classic covers and timeless songs about love gone wrong, Unwoman has been a featured favorite at major steampunk, goth, and sci-fi-related events all over North America. She received the 2013 Steampunk Chronicle Reader's Choice Award for best solo musician. In addition to solo work, Unwoman has performed with Amanda Palmer, Voltaire, Abney Park, Rasputina, and Stripmall Architecture. With talent of epic proportions, she has released seven albums and is still going strong.
Our final act of the night is the merrymaking Marian Call! A performer at the very first GeekGirlCONcert, Marian is a nerdy singer-songwriter based in Juneau, Alaska. She has made a name for herself by touring endlessly and connecting directly with fans on Twitter. With songs about spaceships, dragons, and Jane Austen, she's gained an international online following and the enthusiastic endorsement of a number of web celebrities such as Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day, Peter Sagal, and Adam Savage of the Mythbusters. She has played on the Jonathan Coulton Cruise and toured with w00tstock and the Ladies of Ragnarok (The Doubleclicks and Molly Lewis), warming the hearts of comic shop denizens across the country. Learn more and listen to her tunes today to prepare for the party!
This GeekGirlCONcert Spectacular is likely to sell out, so don't delay! Pick up your GeekGirlCon pass today (and stop by our Info Booth on Saturday) or buy a ticket and join us for nerdy laughter, geeky songs, and beautiful music!
