with Jonny Berliner, Bert Miller & the Animal Folk, Chris Dunsford and Oort Kuiper & Phatmattbaker
(Thu 11th March / 7pm / £6/5)
Calling all out and proud geeks. The interweb’s annual celebration of science, music and creativity, Geek Pop, is branching beyond its virtual festival beginnings into the physical world, starting with a launch party right here in Bristol. Supported by Computer Geeks and the British Science Association, the Geek Pop crew have assimilated a scintillating selection of science-inspired stars for this, the first Geek Pop live event. Join your host, nerd comedian Chris Dunsford for an evening so square you could fold it in half and call it an isosceles triangle. Jonny Berliner plays tunes from his recently released science EP. The Animal Folk entertain with whimsical songs about worms. And Oort Kuiper and Phatmattbaker clash in a freestyle rap jam session that has to be seen to be believed.

Dress code: geek chic. Be there *and* be square.
