Jonathan Coulton
Jonathan Coulton
Jonathan Coulton is from the Internet. While a struggling music industry fell to pieces over file sharing and shifting business models, he quietly and independently amassed a small army of techies, nerds, and dedicated superfans. His songs cover an eclectic range of subjects, from zombies and mad scientists to marriage and parenthood. In concert he moves fluidly between pathos and ridiculous fun. Seeing your first Coulton show is like walking into an insider club meeting, but one that gleefully welcomes and indoctrinates you in short order.

After leaving a perfectly good software career to pursue music full time, Jonathan embarked on a bold experiment in forced-march creativity called Thing a Week, in which he recorded and published a new song every Friday for a year. Much to his surprise, this plan worked, and he has since released many albums and toured all over the world. You may know him from many things, including the songs from Portal and Portal 2, his cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot‘s “Baby Got Back” (infamously hijacked by Glee), his theme songs for Rifftrax and the TV show “Going Deep with David Rees,” or his work with longtime pal John Hodgman.

He owns and runs his own fan cruise called the JoCo Cruise, as profiled in Wired magazine. Through Kickstarter he funded a graphic novel based on his songs, and written by Greg Pak, called Code Monkey Save World. He is currently the One Man House Band for the NPR quiz show “Ask Me Another.”

IS THERE ANYTHING HE CANNOT DO?
Paul and Storm
Paul and Storm
Paul and Storm (Paul Sabourin and Greg “Storm” DiCostanzo) are known internationally and across the Internet for their original comedy music (often with a “nerd-ish” bent). In addition to their own live performances, they are co-founders of the geek-oriented variety show w00tstock, along with Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage, and co-produceJoCo Cruise. The duo’s original webseries musical, “LearningTown“, debuted on YouTube’s Geek & Sundry channel in January 2013. Also in 2013, their song “Another Irish Drinking Song” was featured in the hit movie Despicable Me 2, and in July had their guitar smashed on stage by George R. R. Martin (and deserved it). Their fifth full-length CD,Ball Pit, came out in 2014, and was the central item of the duo’s wildly successful Kickstarter campaign
