Geek Culture Bards Coming to Jean Cocteau Saturday

The comical music duo called Paul & Storm, whose best-known song, "Write Like the Wind" is about Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin will be playing on Martin's home turf, the Jean Cocteau Cinema, this Saturday night.

Paul Sabourin and Greg “Storm” DiCostanzo have been playing music together for about 20 years. Much of it lampoons or celebrates the world of Geekdom.

"A lot of our music is kinda nerdy, much like we are kinda nerdy, which led us to found a variety show called w00tstock along with Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage," their website says. (It was at a w00tstock show in San Diego where Paul & Storm met George R.R. Martin. The results weren't pretty.)

The concert is Saturday, November 9, at 7 pm and tickets are $15, available in advance at the Jean Cocteau website or at the theater. Tickets also will be sold at the door.

Here is Storm & Paul's ode to the owner of the Jean Cocteau.
