Tonight: Get your geek on with singer Jonathan Coulton

Tickets still remain for tonight’s (Feb. 27) show by Jonathan Coulton — geek music singer-songwriter — at the History Theatre in St. Paul.   

He sings about science fiction, technology, bacteria, even computer programmers. Listen to him on his MySpace page
or check out these lyrics for “Code Monkey”:

Code Monkey go to job
have boring meeting with boring manager Rob
Rob say Code Monkey very diligent
but his output stink
his code not functional or elegant
what do Code Monkey think
Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write goddamn login page himself

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you

This job fulfilling in creative way
such a load of crap
Code Monkey think someday he have everything even pretty girl like you

How can you not like that?Tickets are $20 and $22. Show starts at 8 p.m. tonight (Feb. 27) at the History Theatre in St. Paul.
