W00tstock 3.0 Tickets Are Still On Sale

This year’s W00tstock is taking place on Thursday, July 21st. 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. Tickets are still on sale so I’d pick one up if you want to have a geeky, fun night! See you there!

w00tstock 3.0

A NIGHT OF GEEKS & MUSIC
with ADAM SAVAGE,
WIL WHEATON and
PAUL & STORM

July 21, 2011

WELCOME TO w00tstock!

Geek Vaudeville.  Nerd Church.
The 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 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, 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.
