What on earth is "W00tstock"?!?

To put it simply, w00tstock is awesome. Three-ish hours of the very best entertainment that geek culture can provide, courtesy of Mr. Adam Savage, Mr. Wil Wheaton and Messrs. Paul and Storm, and a selection of special guests. Previous shows have included musical interludes from Miss Molly Lewis, Mr. MC Frontalot and Miss Felicia Day, Mr. Sandeep Parikh and Mr. Jeff Lewis from The Guild.

Here's what Mr. Storm of Messrs. Paul and Storm says about w00tstock.

OK, sounds fun. What's it like?

I haven't been lucky enough to go to a show yet. Which is sort of the point of this blog. Anyway, have a look at the w00tstock Flickr photosets, check out some audience videos on YouTube and subscribe to the official YouTube channel. That should give you a feeling for the level of epicness achieved during the three-ish hours. Special attention must be drawn to the w00tstock 2.2 Chicago show, where the 3 minute-or-so "Captain's Wife's Lament" took the cast 35 minutes to perform!

Yes!! I want w00tstock!! What's next?

First, we need an audience to spur on the w00tstock guys. All you need to do is go to w00tstock's Eventful page and add a demand or use the Eventful widget on the right-hand side of the page to demand a London show. After you've added your voice, spread the word far and wide!

First Steps

What's the plan?


New post below: Retweet.

Demand w00tstock. The current UK locations with Eventful Demands are shown in the sidebar. Please let me know if I've missed one!

Please be sensible and choose just one Demand.

Tell your friends about w00tstock.

Show them the videos.

Buy (and listen to) Messrs. Paul and Storm's music.

Buy (and read) Mr. Wil Wheaton's books.

Watch (and enjoy) Mr. Adam Savage's show, MythBusters.

Share all of the above with your friends. Get them hooked!

The first sign-up drive starts Friday 18th June at 6pm BST until Sunday 20th June at 6pm BST. The goal? Increase the Eventful Demand It counts. Choose an existing Demand or make a new one. Get people interested enough to Demand It. Show the guys that the UK wants w00tstock. If they know the demand is there, one day the stars will align. One day.
