w00tstock will be returning for its third consecutive year to Comic-Con! It will be taking place on Thursday, July 12th. This geeky variety show is hosted by comedians Paul and Storm, Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage, and everyone’s favorite Evil Wil Wheaton from the Big Bang Theory. There will be other entertainers that will be announced before Comic-Con. The event will be held at the historic Balboa Theatre, which is next to Horton Plaza. Tickets are going on sale February 17th at 10am PT so I’d pick one up if you want to have a geeky, fun night! See you there!
A Night of Geeks & Music
with ADAM SAVAGE,
WIL WHEATON and
PAUL & STORM
July 12, 2012
Variety Show for the Internet Set.
For decades, geeks were ostracized, picked on, laughed at and punished by the sun’s harmful UV rays. But there is only so long that a people can be kept down before they rise up against their oppressors; and, indeed, the dawn of the 21st century has seen the ascendancy of geeks and geek culture.
We now celebrate that rise to power–and let’s face it, nerds pretty much run everything now–with w00tstock 4.0, a special event for geeks of every stripe.
Television host/special-effects artist Adam Savage (MythBusters), actor/author/blogger Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Stand By Me) and music-comedy duo Paul and Storm (The Internet, Da Vinci’s Notebook) present a high-energy night of music acts, readings, comedy, demonstrations, short films, special guests, and other clever widgets born from and dedicated to the enthusiasms, obsessions, trials and joys of geek pride.
This is the dawning of the Age of Geekdom–and its voices will ring true at w00tstock 4.0
