We’ll Meet at Metronome for Marian (Barring a Beb)!

Marian Call: Good 'n' Geeky

Marian Call: Good ‘n’ Geeky at Metronome Coffee in Tacoma This Friday 10/18/13!

Carrie is crazy preggers (we’re only about two weeks out from our due date), but that’s not gonna stop us from going down to Metronome Coffee in Tacoma this Friday night to see one of our favorite musicians, Marian Call!

If’n you’re not in the know, Marian is a very lovely-voiced singer/songwriter whose songs dive definitely into the geeky. She has a whole album with songs inspired by Firefly and Battlestar Galactica. She has epic and funny songs about two nerds who fall in love but are afraid to do anything about it (“Dear Mr. Darcy“) and defiant nerd anthems (“I’ll Still be a Geek After Nobody Thinks it’s Chic“). She has appeared on stage with Wil Wheaton, Molly Lewis, The Doubleclicks, and others of major geek cred. She’s the real deal, and really talented:

She’s also from the Gig Harbor/Tacoma area, so even though she now resides in the Alaska, she tries to stop by T-town whenever she’s in the area. And we try (usually successfully) to catch her whenever she does. It’s a good time, and I’d love all my Taco Man peeps to come out and join me. And also my Seattle peeps and Oly peeps. Y’know.

Of course, there is always the chance that a wee beb might arrive and supersede all plans. But we’ll be there barring beb!

The place Marian usually plays in T-town closed down last year, though! So for the first time she’ll be playing at Metronome Coffee on the corner of 6th & Union!

But this is not the first time that we’ve enjoyed some excellent musics at Metronome, nor shall it be the last! On November 8th three of my musician friends are going to be playing there: The Old Salt, Terrapin Productions, and none other than Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount! I’ll keep you posted on that show as it develops. We might just to go that show, too… carrying our days-old wee beb to her first live musics show!
