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. Featured in the New York Times, NPR and slashdot, 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.

    Have a date on this night and being able to make these tickets magically appear would be an added bonus to the night!

    WOW! didn’t know he was coming to town! Thanks PDX PIPELINE for the scoop!
    JoCo’s opening set for TMBG was painfully brief- would love to see the whole show!

    Thursday is my sister’s birthday. I can’t be there to celebrate it with her so I could go to Jonathan’s concert in her honor instead.

    Wow…. I would just love to take my son to this. He is 17 and will be a senior next year… Not too many more opportunities to share with him! Would love to add this to the memory banks!

    My wife has never had an opportunity to see JoCo perform and getting to surprise her with these tickets would be the perfect thing to raise her spirits after the last few weeks that she’s had to endure.

    I’ll end world hunger. I’ll make dolphins speak.

    Not only is Jonathan Coulton amazing, but John Roderick! This would be a blast!

    Man, This would be the bee’s knees…

    Tickets because I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you.

    But I get the feeling that you don’t like it – what’s with all the screaming? – you like monkeys, you like ponies, maybe you don’t like monsters so much. Maybe I used too many monkeys, but isn’t it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

    i want these because reasons.

  18. Sara Kelly June 21, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    MY HUSBAND LOVES JONATHAN COULTON!!! He seriously listens to him all the time AND sings his songs while driving around, which drives me nuts!! Let him sing ‘all we wanna do is eat your brains’ with people who understand him. Please!!

  19. Andrew June 22, 2012 at 11:06 am #

    I’d like to attend because my electrical engineer geek friend would pee his pants with delight at the opportunity to attend. And I’d like to see that.

  20. Scott Lahn June 22, 2012 at 9:57 pm #

    Would totally be up for some geek cultue.Alladin is a spectacular venue, hoping to finally attend a show here!

    I never seem to get a chance to see Coulton when he comes to town but ive been listening to his music for a very long time, and i even purchased most of his collection as opposed to pirating

    I need to smile.
