John Roderick & Friends: "Like Sammy, Frank, and Dean at the Sands in '63, Except With More Classy Dames, Hotter Tunes, and Better Suits""/>
John Roderick and Friends take on The Showbox at the Market on Monday, October 29.
If you ever wanted to know if your favorite tweeters are as witty, funny, and self-deprecating in person as they are inside 140 characters, October 29 is your night to find out. SW columnist John Roderick has corralled some of his music- and comedy-inclined friends--industry-slaying songwriter Jonathan Coulton, Comedy Central contributor John Hodgman, plus Merlin Mann and Scott Simpson--for a night of cultural debauchery. "It's going to be like Sammy, Frank, and Dean at the Sands in '63," Roderick says, "except with more classy dames, more roulette, more Lincoln Continentals, hotter tunes, funnier jokes, and better suits." If you can't make the show, follow @johnroderick, sure to include myriad updates.
Editor's Note: Roderick and Hodgman are collaborating on a piece for Reverb Monthly's Election Special, which you can find tucked inside Seattle Weekly -- and online -- on October 31.
