I love Christmas. I love the whole holiday season. There is magic in the air. Lights are hanging from trees. Holiday movies speak of the importance of friends and family. There are gifts!
This season has inspired historic entertainment moments like the Star Wars Christmas Special and A Colbert Christmas.
Thinking about this season got me thinking, maybe I should put together a great geeky holiday show! And I am! I’ve invited my friends to help out. On December 1st in Seattle, at the Triple Door, there will be holiday nerdery! This is going to be one crazy and awesome night. Hope you guys can come and celebrate the season with me, geek style.
Special guests! Molly Lewis, The Doubleclicks, Stepto, Kyle Stevens….and more?
Young songwriter Molly Lewis, according to Wikipedia, writes “comedic songs on pop culture topics that trend toward the nerdy.” Her original songs and covers, accompanied by her masterful ukulele playing, have earned her over 4.4 million views on YouTube. Her cover of the Jonathan Coulton song “Tom Cruise Crazy” won her the “Ukulele Video of the Year” award from UkuleleHunt.com, and earned her the attention of Coulton himself. Lewis soon became a staple at Coulton concerts, and on the Internet-culture-based touring variety show w00tstock. Her first album, “I Made You A CD, But I Eated It,” was released by DFTBA Records and received local and national press. Lewis recently blew the Internet’s mind when she was invited to sing her song about wanting to have Stephen Fry’s babies to Stephen himself at Harvard University. http://sweetafton23.com
The Doubleclicks are a self-proclaimed “nerd-folk” duo, based in Portland, Oregon. The band is made of the Webber sisters: Berklee College of Music graduate and cellist Aubrey, and songwriter and ukulele player Angela. In 2011, the band started a “song a week” project, in which they posted new songs on their YouTube channel every week for a year – ranging in topics from superpowers to grammar. Their music, particularly a music video for their “Dungeons and Dragons” song created by Brooklyn-based artist Brad Jonas, boosted the Doubleclicks into position as a songwriting voice of the geek and gamer community. The band has toured to gaming and comic conventions and has shared the stage with Wil Wheaton, Amanda Palmer, and Paul and Storm. Though the tracks on The Doubleclicks’ first studio album “Chainmail and Cello” come from “a geeky place,” reviewers note that the Doubleclicks’ music has a broad appeal that can reach beyond the walls of the local game store. http://thedoubleclicks.com
We are excited to have Card Kingdom as the KSSK official sponsor! They are great people and we are happy to have them on board. And apparently so are they:
“Card Kingdom couldn’t be happier to be a part of Kris and Scott’s Scott and Kris Show! We think these guys are awesome, and we are excited to be the sponsor of their show at The Triple Door. After all the support they’ve given to our store, it was an easy call to support them.” – The Team at Card Kingdom
I can’t tell you how excited I am for this show. This is the first show listed as “a Dammit Liz Production”. Seriously, my name is on the poster and everything. I’m getting an extra copy for parents to put on their fridge.
This show has been such a pleasure to work on. Not only do I get to work on the logistic type things and coordination, but I also get to be involved with the creative aspects. We were able to put together a great show with talented people and fun bits of entertainment. I mean, just look at this group:
