Tell your grandchildren you were there…

Jonathan Coulton is playing his first ever UK gig at Dingwalls in Camden this coming Thursday.

If you don’t know JoCo, he’s behind some classic tunes including Re: Your Brains, a rather fine cover of Sir Mix-a-lot’s Baby Got Back and the, frankly, heartbreaking love song Code Monkey.

Not to mention the fact that he did the magnificent closing song for Portal.

A lot of people on the Internet right now are talking about the 1,000 true fans that, when you have them, enable you to give up the day job and make a living from your art. Well, JoCo is living proof.

More info about him.

If you hurry, there are still a few tickets left.

  1. Just finished what will probably be the first of many Portal play throughs this weekend. You’re right, that is a magnificent song.
