w00tstock Founders' Night with Adam Savage, Paul and Storm and Wil Wheaton and special guest John Roderick, Jason Finn and Rebecca Watson

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For decades, geeks were ostracized, picked on, laughed at and punished by the sun’s harmful UV rays. But there is only so long that a people can be kept down before they rise up against their oppressors; and, indeed, the dawn of the 21st century has seen the ascendancy of geeks and geek culture.

We now celebrate that rise to power–and let’s face it, nerds pretty much run everything now–with w00tstock, a special event for geeks of every stripe. Television host/special-effects artist Adam Savage (MythBusters), music-comedy duo Paul and Storm (The Internet, Da Vinci’s Notebook) and author, actor and host of "TableTop" Wil Wheaton present a night of songs, readings, comedy, demonstrations, short films, and other clever widgets born from and dedicated to the enthusiasms, obsessions, trials and joys of geek pride.

Joining the hosts are special guests John Roderick of The Long Winters, Jason Finn from The Presidents of the United States of America and Rebecca Watson, founder of the Skepchick Blog!

This is the dawning of the Age of Geekdom–and its voices will ring true at w00tstock Founders! $35 All Ages
