Those who know me well know that I am geekily delighted by palindromes. I tend to have usernames like “Dr. Awkward” and “Lonelytylenol,” tag lines that read, “Draw, o coward!” and when I first moved to the NYC area, my zip code was 10801. Coincidentally. I’m not that crazy about palindromes to plan that sort of thing.
So when skeptic singer/songwriter/drummer/podcaster/impresario George Hrab was going to have a concert on February 18th, 2012—fully aware of what he was doing—I was pumped. When he asked if I could draw up a poster, I was all over it, and I already had ideas.
The final product was more minimalist than I would have liked and I’d definitely want to play around with far more elaborate card decorations in the future, but Geo and Ms. Information were thrilled, and I think the simple, classy, look works in this case. Which is great, because I’m really excited for this concert. It will be my first time seeing the Geologic Orchestra, my first time in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and hey, Phil Plait and a plethora of other amazing skeptics will be in attendance. So consider coming on down for what is guaranteed to be a fun show.
If you haven’t heard of George before, I highly highly recommend checking out his podcast. It’s a very well produced, fun variety hour, and I can’t say enough good things about George himself. Check it out. In the meantime, info below:

Oh, and I promise there will be real comics next week. In fact, I just finished a doozy that relates to yesterday’s post. Stay tuned!
Europe: The reason we use 2/18/12 is because of how we speak it, “February 18th, 2012″
