Hey Geeks!  I am live streaming a concert tonight!  Provided we get the audio sounding good!  Which we hope and think it will!  Yay last-second trips to radio shack.  Make humble sacrifices to the tech spirits; I am.

Here are all the details of how stuff works!!!

  • Watch the live stream at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/marian-call-live-from-thinkgeek-hq starting a little after 7pm EDT.
  • Want an awesome incredible poster from tonight’s show, drawn by John Tyler Christopher?  You can order them tonight only at http://mariancall.com starting at about 7pm EDT!  The first 100 will be signed by me, but everyone who orders will get one — we will print as many as you guys order.  But only tonight!!  Sales close about midnight EDT.  All proceeds go to keep Art of Akira, and the artist behind it, thriving.  Keeping art alive is up to us, and it’s the best.  International friends: you can order too!  If your shipping is lots extra you might have to work out an extra little invoice, but you’ll be contacted individually.  Order just like normal!
  • There are lots of prizes, both for folks here in person and listening/watching online.  The rules are below for folks who want to win stuff from @thinkgeek!!!
  • If you are enjoying the show from a distance, especially the whole show, please tip so Marian can keep making music!  Or buy some lovely songs.  Or come to a show in Arlington, Annapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Cambridge, Portland, or Seattle!  And more cities coming soon.
