Seattle Night of Stars

By JoCo November 5, 2008

No rest for the weary: I’m on my way to Seattle to do a few west coast dates with the John Hodgman book tour. Please note that tomorrow night, Thursday November 6, John and I will be performing at Town Hall in Seattle. Joining us, local treasures and actual famous people John Roderick and Sean Nelson. IT IS GOING TO BE VERY BIG AND FUN (all caps courtesy of John Hodgman).

I can’t figure out how to put a proper link in this iPhone WordPress app, so I’m afraid you’ll have to cut and paste (which I also cannot do from here, ha ha). Regardless, buy your tickets here:

Also: yes we can.


NotMe says

Woot! Short notice but totally there!

Lex says

Huzzah for auto-parsing URLs. And for using the wordpress app for iPhone.

Tony Fabris says

Damn. Let's see... Coulton/Hodgman show, or pre-scheduled massage appointment?

Sorry, JC. I love you like the air I breathe, but you're not going to rub my naked body for an hour.

And I've seen you a bunch of times already (and will again in January-- The MOORE! Wohoo!) so it's not like we never get to see each other.

Ann says

Yes We Can and Yes We DID. :-)

weemanjoe says

quoted from tony fabris"but you’re not going to rub my naked body for an hour."

really depends on how good the concert is and if you sing along... the concert i went to was good... i sang along... *shudders*.... goes for a shower

MitchO says

Oh like it's hard to find someone else to rub a naked body for an hour a different time~

Sora says

Isn't this the wrong Washington for post-election partying? Still, you're welcome here anytime!

Yes, We Can -- 'Cuz, Yes, We Did!!!

Deuce says

Short notice, small venue.. potential for chatting with your fans perhaps?
Either way, I'll be sure to hit it!

(Oh, BPT..)

Andrea says

How come you and John Hodgman are not coming to Chicago? Have we displeased you?

Also: We certainly are able to!

I was at the Grant Park rally. It was incredible. Photos:

Terisa says

Yes we can.

case says

Who is this Johnathan Coulter I've been hearing so much about?

JOHN HODGMAN & JONATHAN COULTER Thursday, November 6 at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall Seattle.

Gordon says

Doesn't list the 11th in Corte Madera on your calendar, so am I to assume you're not going to be there?

Jonathan Drain says

Are you going be playing along side Jonathan CoulteRRRRRRRR or is this an unfortunate typo.

Jon Dittert says

How are those 2 people "actually famous" and you guys aren't? I know who you and Hodgeman are. I have no clue about the other two people you mentioned.

Austin says

No, JoCo's a demi!

Herbalamanda says

No I can't afford to run across the state after work today to go on a 5 hour car trip to see your concert in Seattle. But I will anyway! See you there!

Eric Fell says

Comin' down from Vancouver, BC for this one!

Kayla says

Yes we did. :D

I think you might need to update Washy Ad Jeffy and The Presidents. :P

Leslie says

Awesome show tonight! Thanks for the music, thanks for the fun, and thanks for being so nice to my kid.

Sean says

Great show tonight, easily in my top 10 favorite public events! See you in January!

Sean says

Also it's cool. Memorizing Presidents is hard!

Sora says

Fantastic show last night! Seriously -- that was an awesome experience, and I don't mind being exhausted for work today. ;)

Are you going to put up a recording of that new version of The Presidents??? I would LOVE a copy of that. ;)

Mack says

I sat off to stage right for the entire show and so when John was doing his reading all I could see was the side of your head. That isn't to say anything bad about the side of your head, it's a perfectly good side of the head.

Great show guys! Come back on your separate tours after the inevitable public tabloid fallout.

SevinPackage says

Yes we can, and yes we will.

Eddy says

Thank you for this.

Will the Battlestar Galactica theme make its way onto the internets anytime soon? I was hoping to share that with someone who could not make it.

Cassie says

Awesome show. Thank you. Would also like to join the chorus of requests for that sweet presidents song.

Cassie says

Nevermind! Found it! :-)

Aaron says

Oh man... I wish I'd heard about this BEFORE *today*, the day *after* the show. Sean Nelson (of Harvey Danger, best known nationally for "Flagpole Sitta" (i.e., "I'm not sick but I'm not well" for the musically retarded) in the 90s, but much more popular in the local and indie scene) and JoCo together? Couldn't really care less about the Johns...

*kick self*

Sora says


That's the old version -- the version he sang in Seattle last week had a fantastically updated last verse.

Andrea says

The version in Seattle is on YouTube.

Jmonkee says

There's a better version on Vimeo, with the updated lyrics nice and clearly audible:

Andrea says

Thanks, Jmonkee! That version is indeed far superior.

Quick-Loss AcaiBurn says

Thanks Jmonkee, that's a great version of the video. Much better.

Daniele says

Saw it and love it! But what about your San Diegans fans, I heard they want you there... What do you say...
