JoCo Cannot Be Stopped

By JoCo March 27, 2009

So I guess I lied when I said that was the last of the Spring shows – INADVERTENTLY. Check it: a FREE concert at University of Arkansas next week, then Dallas, LA, and Solana Beach (the one near San Diego) in May.

Plus a special benefit show at the Birchmere on May 21 to benefit the Lung Transplant Foundation – a cause near and dear to my heart because my booking agent recently had both lungs replaced (you can go back and read that again if you want) and is doing really well. I don’t know what my booking agent would have done without these new lungs, and I don’t know what I would have done without my booking agent.

But enough about lungs, here are the details:

Friday March 27 at 8PM
Symphony Space (New York, NY) with Paul and Storm

Tuesday March 31 at 7PM
Arkansas Union Theater (Fayetteville, AR)
FREE and open to the public!
(sorry for the late notice on this one, I thought it was students only)

Thursday April 23 at 8 PM
Lula Lounge (Toronto, ON) with Paul and Storm

Friday April 24 at 7:30 PM
Lula Lounge (Toronto, ON) with Paul and Storm

Wednesday May 13 at 8PM
Granada Theater (Dallas, TX) with Paul and Storm

Thursday May 14 at 8PM
Belly Up Tavern (Solana Beach, CA) with Paul and Storm

Sunday May 17 at 8:30PM
Largo (Los Angeles, CA) with Paul and Storm
For tix call (310) 855-0350
This one will sell out I think, so don’t wait too long.

Thursday May 21 at 7:30PM
The Birchmere (Alexandria, VA) with Chelsea Lee
Lung Transplant Foundation Benefit


Russell says

Damn. Hey, you visit any major city in TN and I'll be there, but so far been bad luck for the last... oh... Two years.

James says

Yo JoCo when is Utah gonna see the love!!

compwalla says

w00t! Got my tickets for Dallas. I really wish that was a weekend show since I have to drive 3 hours to get there but I don't care. It will be the first time I've been close enough to see a show and I wouldn't miss it for the world. My sister lives in Seattle and has seen three or four shows but I live in Podunk and must make a pilgrimage.

AJS says

...not to mention...I feel fantastic, and I'm still alive!

BenTheTipsyBear says

SoCal, SoCal, SoCal - Did I miss the SF Bay Area shows?

Scott says

Yay @ more JoCo tour dates!
Saw you at London last time you were over this side of the lake. Any chance of an appearance over here sometime this year?

JoCo says

@BenTheTipsyBear: Yep. January. But I'll be back.

I can't say it enough people: Mailing List, Mailing List, Mailing List

Cullen says

Thank you soooooo much JoCo for coming to Dallas, great venue by the way, like 5 blocks from my home! I cannot wait!

rob says

Yay! Glad to see you took my suggestion on the Granada in Dallas. I LOVE that venue.

TomR says

So glad you're coming to UofA next week, looking forward to seeing you and singing along with Blue Sunny Day!

WiredMonkey says

JoCo - thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!! You're finally coming back to Dallas!!! I found out about your music *literally* the night of your last concert in Dallas, and was too late to do anything about it! I've been waiting eagerly ever since, for you to announce another Dallas date. I was so sad when you were in Austin last week and I couldn't make it...and then I find out this today! YAY! I bought my tickets this morning and I'm SOOO thrilled! So, thank you!

Cambiata says

Yes, thousands of thanks for at last coming back to Dallas! And so near where I live, too. Too, too awesome. I already bought 2 tickets for the front row, and I'm telling everyone I know to attend.

Plaid Phantom says


Arkansas finally gets some love. XD I will totally be there.

And if I have my way, I shall be bringing people with me.

Now we just need on No More Kings.

Dan_ad_nauseam says

Nothing, I see, scheduled for May 1. :-)

tshaddox says

Hmm, a mere 2.5 hours from me in Springfield, MO.

bb4lake says

Noooooo! You are coming to Fayetteville the week of my finals in Little Rock. You must come back, or I must sacrifice my gpa to see you!

Ogenbite says

Sonuva-! It figures I read that you were in NY today rather than yesterday. Bet it was a good show. Urg.

Nathan Wind as Cochese says

I completely agree with Rob. The Granada is hands down my favorite venue in Dallas. It's not too big, it's not too small, it's JUST right. And that doesn't even mention that it's in a great part of town that has a lot of local restaurants nearby. Too bad the Cafe Brazil in Lower Greenville closes at 3:00PM on Wednesdays. The 24 hour one on US-75 just north of Mockingbird Ln. is a bit farther away.

whall says

That's so great for you to do a benefit concert. If you set up a link or online donation thing / drive for that I bet the response would take your breath away.

tshaddox says

Anyone know anything about the University of Arkansas show? It's free, which is nice, but I'm 2.5 hours away and need to know if it's going to be a long enough show (not just like 2 quick songs) to make the drive worth it ;0

Cambiata says

Jonathan Coulton they are SINGING YOUR SONG ON BRAVO. Millionaire Matchmaker. A nerdy millionaire is singing it. Srsly.

Ann says

I guess my "hurry back to DC" actually worked this time. I will definitely try to make the Birchmere show: my dad had COPD in his lungs and while he didn't need a transplant, it was pretty damn scary. Glad your friend is doing better.

JoCo says

tshaddox: it's a full show in Arkansas.

ScottyMo says

Okay, I owe the US government 400 bucks, a $300 car payment, and
I have $50 to my I buy a ticket to the Solana Beach show!?

Jenna says

Floooorrrridaaaaa!!!! It's calling you, JoCo... again and again... please please please please?

Trisha Lynn says

@Cambiata: I thought I was the only one who saw that! I find it a bit ballsy and awesome that he'd use that as a video interview bit for a weirdo matchmaking thing, but hey... whatever works.

Whomever he is, he should totally come forth and identify himself.

Jeff says

Jeff wants a JoCo DVD. I want to stimulate the economy by spending money on your DVD.

amber says

I am so excited to see you are going to be in Fayetteville, I will be there!

Nick says

Hmm, third concert in three months? Sounds like a deal to me! ^.^

And yes, I second Jeff's statement. Don't deny us our constitutional rights to DvDs!

Or your recipe for Mac & Cheese Muffins. Awesome idea indeed! Though if Hodgman lied to me again (I went around telling people that there was an old version of lobsters that were killed off and extinct now, totally thinking it was true. No wonder they looked at me as if I were scientifically justifying unicorns) I might just have to kill 'em.

N0QLT says

Too bad I'm not going to make the U of A show. I'm on the mailing list now!
Please consider MSSU (or anyplace else in Joplin, MO) or Springfield, MO. There are lots of us fans "in the woodwork!"

Stu says

Just saw you in Fayetteville, it was a blast :) Had to sneak out of a banquet to make it but it was totally worth it! Hope to see you in the area again! (more of my favorite Internet-based artists need to come through here :()

amber says

Thanks for coming to U of A! I bet if you come again we can get a much larger crowd, I wouldn't have known about it if I hadn't happened to pop over here.

Ryan says

A three hour drive was well worth that show at U of A!

gurdonark says

I am glad to see you are coming to the Granada Theater in Dallas. I hope to see that show. I hope you enjoyed your time at my alma mater--I wonder if any of my professors from the physics department came to see your show!
