Jonathan Coulton

Booked my tickets recently for Jonathan Coulton at The Bongo Club on 8th Nov. Can't wait.

I saw Jonathan last year in Birmingham and he was fantastic. If you don't know who he is, he is a former software engineer who quit to pursue a music career and survives through word of mouth and the internet spreading the word.

He produced a podcast called "Thing A Week" where he released a new song every week for a year, resulting in 52 mostly fantastic songs, available for free under a creative commons licence.

Do yourself a favour and check him out. There are some videos that some people have done on YouTube using World of Warcraft.

There is of course the office zombie apocalypse of Re Your Brains ,the unrequited lovelorn mad scientist of Skullcrusher Mountain and of course the wonderful ode for nerdy computer geeks everywhere - Code Monkey.
