Coulton at the Birchmere

When I say TONIGHT I mean TONIGHT FRIDAY AUGUST 31, not Saturday, as yesterday’s Express claims. Tsk, Post editors, tsk!

Tonight Jonatan Coulton will be appearing at the Birchmere with Bob Paul & Storm, formerly of DaVinci’s Notebook. I’ve seen all of them perform a few times and it’s always fun. Bob Paul and Storm were recently on Metro Connection, where you can hear a bit of what their banter and music is like. They describe themselves as funny guys who do music, but Coulton as a great musician who happens to be funny.

Coulton was on the front of yesterday’s Express (no, I don’t read it either – he mentioned it on his website) with an interview on page 41. [pdf] The money quote, I think, is “The credit has to go to Sir Mix-a-lot, since not only is [baby got back] wickedly funny, there is an important message in there about body image.”

He’s speaking, of course, about his breakout hit, which you can listen to free here.

At $20 I think it’s a pretty good deal for a show at the Birchmere. I only recently went for the first time, and was quite happy with the experience. Go early so you don’t have to pay Ticketbastard’s silly fees.

UPDATE: Whoopsie! Thanks Gina, I don’t know why I got Bob stuck in my head – the only thing I can imagine is some random neuron in the back of my brain remembering DaVN’s multiple collaborations with The Bobs. Sorry Paul!
