Hear ye, hear ye! It's time for a super-sweet ticket giveaway from Geek Girl Chicago! Two lucky readers will be going to the Ladies of Ragnarok Tour, October 3rd at 8PM at Evanston SPACE. It's going to be a paradise for fans of Internet music and geek-flavored comedy. Check out these acts...
1. Molly Lewis - Initially discovered on YouTube, Lewis is an award-winning... ukulelist? Ukulelier? Ukulele player. She performs both originals and covers, and has appeared alongside geek icons Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm, and Wil Wheaton. I've seen her live, performing a song from Portal, but she isn't all fandom-based. Recent subjects include beards, Mr. T, and Peep jousting!
2. The Doubleclicks - Thanks to the poster, I'm imagining The Doubleclicks wielding a cello and violin in an epic, LOTR-style battle. Their album has me hooked; Spock Impersonator is basically my biography, and I'll be singing The Nerdy Birthday Song at every party from now on. The music of these talented sisters speaks to the cosplaying introvert in all of us... as well as the Velociraptor.
3. Bill Corbett - If you've seen even a single episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, you know this man. He was a writer for the cult hit and the voice of Crow. Corbett is still roasting movies. From The Film Crew to Rifftrax, his comedy and commentary are ever-sharp.
4. Joseph Scrimshaw - Scrimshaw's website is a collection of essays and podcasts. Star Wars seems to be his first love, but his heart has room for Batman, The Avengers, Doctor Who, gaming, girls, and more.
Now, the best part- the GIVEAWAY! For a shot at 2 tickets to The Ladies of Ragnarok, please respond to this article with:
