Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

I’ve been a fan of Jonathan Coulton ever since my own Jonathan put “Skullcrusher Mountain” on a mix CD for me. And, Hooray! He's coming to The Showbox June 22!!!

Moving between fun, poppy tunes and folkier ballards, Coulton's lyrics inject a sense of (nerdy) humor into every song. His live shows are full of adorable stage presence punctuated by witty commentary, making him beloved by legions of fans. (I’m not kidding about the legions, you guys. He’s like the official singer/songwriter for everybody who goes to Comic Con.) Check out "Skullcrusher Mountain" above, and listen to more of his songs for free here, plus get some downloads for only $1 a pop! Further proof that he is super awesome. Ticket buying is recommend NOW, because this will be sold out soon.

“I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you
But I get the feeling that you don't like it
What's with all the screaming?
You like monkeys, you like ponies
Maybe you don't like monsters so much
Maybe I used too many monkeys
Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?”
