Jonathan Coulton to play PAX ’07?

4 Sep

The very suggestion is no doubt premature, given that the Penny Arcade guys probably haven’t even approached Coulton (who rocked the house with the zombie singalong “Re Your Brains” at the 826 Seattle benefit on Friday.)

But in today’s entry Tycho says,

Brenna and I went to a benefit concert for a charity in our neighborhood called 826 Seattle. Virtually every moment of it was well made entertainment. I mean it, It was nuts – Sarah Vowell, Stephen Merritt, Decemberists Guy, Other Guy, and the insanely talented Smoosh – but there was a musician called Jonathan Coulton that I think you might really enjoy. You can hit up his Myspace thingy if you don’t want to wreck his site, but all the tracks aren’t working there – his version of Baby Got Back and Skullcrusher Mountain (which you might already have heard) seem to work, but you’ll need to go to his site if you want to hear Goddamn awesome songs like Code Monkey and (particularly) Re Your Brains. I need to see what this motherfucker is doing around the end of August, next year.

So, yeah. That’d be awfully cool.

    I ran into Derrick and Selena at Bumbershoot and I sang for them the first half of the chorus. It took exactly that long to convince Derrick that Re Your Brains shall be the official song of Game Night.

    I think Coulton may be reaching the tipping point of…well, maybe not fame, but something like fame.

    This PAX attendee will doubtless enjoy his song about brains next year.
