Computer Geeks confirmed as sponsors

If you’ve been keeping up, you’ll know that we’re planning a series of live events across the UK for Geek Pop launch week in 2010. One of these will take place in Bristol – home of Geek Pop HQ, hooray!

We can now confirm the sponsors of this event as Computer Geeks, who basically perform miracles with machines (they understand computers so you don’t have to), and the Bristol & Bath branch of the British Science Association. Thanks also to Bob Foster of Science Cafe for helping to organise the event.

The venue for the Bristol launch is now confirmed and the line-up is rapidly evolving – more details on this soon or sign up for our newsletter for fortnightly updates from October/November. For now though, something to whet your appetite: there will, quite possibly, be tea and cakes, and most certainly a geek chic dress code. You’ll also get special privileges for turning up in a Geek Pop Square t-shirt. We’re not saying what they are though (mainly because we haven’t thought of them yet, but we will).

If you belong to an organisation interested in sponsoring one of the other geektastic launch week events in Cambridge or London, you can email crew@geekpop.co.uk for more information.


Official call for artists

Geek Pop '10Just a quick post, folks. We’re announcing our official call for artists for Geek Pop ’10 today. You can download a press release here or read more about how to apply here. So. If you know anyone who is in a band, knows how to play a penny whistle or just enjoys dancing like a big geek, click on the “email it” button below. Or RT (retweet) us on Twitter. (One way or another it should, hopefully, get to those with genuine musical talents.)

Awesome. Thanks.

P.S. We’re going to be at the Green Man Festival on the weekend running a science/comedy event in Einstein’s Garden (Saturday at about 5pm). So if you’re going to be there, come along and say hello.
