Birthday Bash

Posted On: 2014-01-12 09:42:44

So we have a little something special going on this year seeing as how it's the tenth year of ShmooCon and all (you did know that, right?)...  

Saturday night, for the first time ever, we'll be hosting the Saturday night fun on site at the hotel.  Beginning at 8:30 PM Paul and Storm will on the main stage to entertain us with their geek/nerd humor.

Paul and Storm (Paul Sabourin and Greg “Storm” DiCostanzo) are known internationally and across the Internet for their original comedy music (often with a “nerd-ish” bent). In addition to their own live performances, they are co-founders of the geek-oriented variety show w00tstock, along with Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage, and co-produce JoCo Cruise Crazy. The duo’s original webseries musical, “LearningTown“, debuted on YouTube’s Geek & Sundry channel in January 2013. Also in 2013, their song “Another Irish Drinking Song” was featured in the hit movie Despicable Me 2, and in July had their guitar smashed on stage by George R. R. Martin (and deserved it).

This will be followed up with DJs Keith Meyers, Zack Fasel and Erin Jacobs - who will help us continue to rock the night away.  We can't wait!

We'll fill you in on the rest of the details at opening ceremonies, but now you know.  :)
