Karl Olson and the Heartbreakers

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and, as a result of grand design rather than mere coincidence, nerdcore’s foremost otaku has chosen this hallowed occasion to unleash upon a lovelorn world his newest collection of geek-tastic tunes, Romance Language. Moreover, said release shall be marked with a bona fide event – a launch party, if you will – to commemorate this revered nativity.

The album itself features, in Ultraklystron’s own words, “an 11 song arc about romance, attraction and various other things in that vein.” Karl also promises a myriad of musical facets will be explored: “everything from classic hiphop to crunk to grimecore to ambient/hip-hop fusion is in play, likely much to [the] dismay of perspective listeners.” Of course, the CD itself will be available on-site for early adopters.

As for the show, well, suffice it to say that it’ll put Ringling Bros to shame! Ultraklystron will be joined onstage at Seattle’s Columbia City Theatre by MC Tanuki (of Northwest Nerdcore), Rai (Karl’s long-time partner in crime), and the delightful Nursehella (that enchantress from the land of Rush and Greztky).

How much would you expect to pay for admittance to such an auspicious event, such an ass-rockin’ show? One hundred dollars? Five hundred dollars? A solid fuck-tillion dollars? Not even close, buddy. Keep that fuck-tillion dollar bill to yourself, ‘cause pre-sale tickets are available now at a mere seven bones! Sure, you can get tickets at the door for a slightly inflated price, but why risk it? Pick up your tix now via this unassuming link.

Did I forget to mention that the show is of the all ages variety? Oh, it’s true. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the nerdy goodness.

If you’re near the Seattle area, I’d highly recommend that you attend. Despite what he might tell you, Ultraklystron is a consummate performer, and this show promises to be a great time… even for those of you without a special sweety for St. Valentine’s.

Event: Ultraklystron's Romance Language Release Party. Acts include MC Tanuki, Rai, Nursehella, and, of course, Ultraklystron. Hear songs from Ultraklystron's new album, Romance Language, and buy a copy before anybody else! Pre-show ticket cost is $7.00, more at the door.
Location: Columbia City Theater(4918 Rainier Ave S Seattle, WA 98118)
Time: February 14, 2007 from 7:00 PM to 2:00 AM

Go out to a killer nerdcore gig and meet some people, or stay at home eating bonbons and crying into your sleeve while you watch reruns of Gimme a Break. The choice is yours.
