Generally we describe Nerd Nite thusly: “It’s like the Discovery Channel – with beer!” We can best describe Nerd Nite 13 as “The Joe Franklin Show with beer.” Don’t remember him? It’s not a problem. It used to be a New York late night talk show where the host Joe F. would invite musical guests on and you could watch them squirm uncomfortably as Joe played their records on his crappy turntable. It’ll be something like that. But a whole lot more.
Tonight we’re going to speak to a panel of knowledgeable and nerdy musicians like:
Becky Grace, a marching band leader at a local high school, to an indie artist from Tucson!
Mariella Morton who unearthed a carousel of 1964 World’s Fair slides and set them to music!
and we’ll speak to every local musician who participated in this years RPM Challenge and recorded an entire album from start to finish in the month of February. Who finished and who folded and why will be the topic of discussion with the Challengers and hosts Ty Fishkind and Serene Dominic.
Nerd Nite: a sound solution to your drab Thursday night! At Filmbar! It’s fun, it’s free and we won’t test you afterwards.
