When you think of a nerd duo who’ve got their shit together, one pair stands above the rest…..Andrew Young and Mr. Green. But not too far behind them are 2 young minstrels that rage against the dying of the light with nothing but guitars and a dream.
Over the past year, I have had the pleasure (Sean would say the unfortunate happenstance) of getting to know the nerd-folk rock combo that is Nerds with Guitars. I have delighted in the witty yarns set to music which they have unleashed on nerd crowds throughout the GTA. Their songs not only entertain, but also reach out to that strange and wonderful plane of thought where some of life’s great questions are pondered. Whether it’s looking at the lighter side of villainy or gaining revenge on would-be rapists, The Nerds with Guitars have always approached their craft with the pride of representing the nerd nation.
It is because of this that both Mr. Green and myself agreed that we couldn’t think of anyone better to celebrate our 2nd Annual Christmas Episode with. Joining us on Friday, December 9th, at 7pm (Eastern Standard Time) on www.realityradio101.com, will be Alex “Big Al” James and “Guitar” Sean May, aka Nerds With Guitars, for a special 90 minute Christmas Extravaganza. Not only will they be with us for the whole show, but they’ll also be performing this year’s Geek Hard Christmas Song.
Now we know that it’s still a couple of weeks away, but to give you a taste of the awesomeness that is in store for you on that night, here is a short video presentation of Nerds With Guitars doing what they do – playing guitars.
That was just a taste. Get ready for the full course meal that awaits you on Friday, December 9th – The Same night where we will announce the winner of the Geek Hard Christmas Stocking! (There’s still time to enter – All it takes is one email and 3 answers to questions you can find here!) Be sure to join us for Geeks of Christmas Past.
If you like what you saw, or even if you didn’t but want to help out, please visit the Nerds With Guitars Kickstarter page at http://projectlunchmoney.com/ – These boys are trying to make an album so they can bring their nerd prophecies to all of you out there across this giant land of nerd. But they can’t do it alone. Go to the site and throw ’em a bit of coin. It’ll only take a minute and it will fill you with the Christmas Spirit as you help those less fortunate than you (come on, their musicians – they’re obviously less fortunate than you).
And be sure to check out Geek Hard, every Friday night in December at 7pm Eastern on www.realityradio101.com, where we will bring some laughs and explore the true meaning of Geekmas!
And if you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
