Marian Call marked her place in the geek pantheon when she released the Firefly and Battlestar Galactica themed CD, Got to Fly, for geek purveyors Quantum Mechanix. Marian will also be at GeekGirlCon on October 8th and 9th. Stay tuned to geekgirlcon.com for details.
Molly Lewis plays the ukulele and sings, and then she posts videos of herself playing the ukulele and singing to YouTube. Her songs about Stephen Fry and Abe Lincoln are instant classics.
The Doubleclicks are two sisters, Aubrey and Angela, who sing and beatbox their way to nerd fame. Their new EP Blatant Pandering has songs about D&D, superpowers, Jurassic Park, Cthulu, and cosplay–all things Geek Girls love.
Don’t rely on mp3s and the youtubes, here’s your opportunity to see these performers live and in-person at the GeekGirlCONcert!

To quote the wonderful Dina Kay, “Think geeks, Pac Man, and fun. It’s practically like a scene from Scott Pilgrim, amirite?”
GeekGirlCon is picking up major steam and if you happen to be lucky enough to live in Seattle you should definitely join them for this event. I mean, who doesn’t love fun, nerdy holiday ornaments? And you can learn how to do it on your own so that next year you’re all set to do DIY ornaments for friends and coworkers.
In case you missed my previous posts about this event, you can click over to their awesomesauce website to find out more information.
“GeekGirlCon is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting awareness of and celebrating the contribution and involvement of women in all aspects of sci-fi, comics, gaming and related Geek culture through conventions and events that emphasize both historic and ongoing contribution and influence of women in this culture.” The best part about this organization, however, is that it is not exclusive to women participants. The idea is to celebrate an aspect of geekdom that does not get nearly enough attention, namely to show that women have an important role in this culture also. In other words, dudes are more than welcome to volunteer/help out also!
Summary: Sunday, December 5th at 2:30 p.m. at the Summit at Madison, 1730 22nd Ave E, Seattle, WA 98122 and to RSVP BY DECEMBER 3RD by emailing email@example.com.
If you don’t live in the Seattle area, there are other ways to support the convention. Check out the website and, if nothing else, donate a few dollars to the cause!
Yup, this is pretty much the most amazing thing ever. I just wish I could be in Seattle!
