Music: Coulton Does Cleveland

Singer-songwriter Jonathan Coulton — who is responsible for songs like “Code Monkey”, “Skullcrusher Mountain”, “First of May” and “Soft Rocked By Me” — will be playing Wilbert’s in Cleveland, Ohio on Thursday, 30 November.

Also playing that night are Paul and Storm, formerly of the excellent a cappella group, Da Vinci’s Notebook (“Title of the Song”, “Another Irish Drinking Song”, “Enormous Penis”Here come the Google hits!).

If you are in the Cleveland vicinity on 30 November, have dollars numbering ten at your disposal, and enjoy music with a humorous twist, you may want to get yourself to Wilbert’s.

  1. I loved Da VInci’s Notebook… Man for once in my Life I can say…Man I wish I lived Near …. Nah I cant really say it… But I do wish I lived close enough to make it….

  2. You forgot the most important1 Da Vinci’s Notebook song, Ballad of the Sneak.

    I may very well have to attend this show, assuming I’m not spending every last minute of Nov. 30 trying to hit 50,000 words.

    I fixx0r3d it for you.

    And you’re right, I completely omitted “The Ballad of the Sneak“, which is an excellent song containing references to (among other things) Tammany Hall, bootleg hootch, “the jazz” and a tiger in the Kaiser’s latrine (Ach du leiber)!

    Oh, please. Folks from Toledo talking trash about Cleveland is like Roy Rogers knocking on Wyatt Earp for not being a “real cowboy”.

  5. JoCo rocks. I only wish he would come to my neighborhood. I’m going to be in Manhattan this coming weekend, and then back in Connecticut for Christmas – I should check if he’s playing in the area.

    Say, what?

    Don’t be knockin’ Cleveland over there!

    It’s going to get knocked. Even Drew Carey knows it.

    You can’t stop it, but you may be able to pick acceptable directions from whence the knocking comes.
