Well this is one way to celebrate one whole year of skepticism in Dublin:
Yes, it is true – Dublin is one of the stops on George’s fabulous Golden Ticket Tour.
8pm 12th February 2011 in Exchange Dublin. The Exchange is a non-alcohol space but everyone is welcome to bring snacks and any non-alcoholic drinks along!
There is no charge on the door, as George is very kindly doing this gig for free and we are using this space for free. However any donations you wish to give towards the costs of this venture – we will not be too polite to refuse you. This money is going towards funding just this gig and no money will be kept as profit.
For those of you who do not know anything about George Hrab here is his bio:
“Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, composer, and heliocentrist George Hrab has written and produced six independent CDs; published one book; recorded hundreds of episodes of an award winning podcast; and even performed for President Clinton— all the while making it a personal quest to improve his audience’s cognitive thinking skills by reaching them through their funny bones and dance shoes.
George has gained international notoriety by producing a weekly, award winning show called The Geologic Podcast which features humor, sketches, and skeptical / free-thinking commentary through various weekly segments.
Exposure through his show has led to George traveling around the world performing his songs in a solo acoustic setting. Along with his superlative musicianship and clever songwriting, these intimate shows are known to showcase his quick wit and incendiary social commentary. He’s been asked multiple times to be a featured performer at James Randi’s The Amaz!ng Meeting in Las Vegas, London, and Australia; and was a special guest/performer in the Galapagos on the JREF’s Amaz!ng Adventure.
George toured both Australia and New Zealand as part of a fan organized “Styrofoam Tour,” where he played to standing room crowds in Brisbane, Melbourne, Christchurch, Auckland, Adelaide and Canberra.
He was asked to write the theme song to the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast and premiered the song FAR at the 213th American Astronomical Society Meeting in Long Beach California. His Occasional Songs for the Periodic Table, a 118 part song cycle featuring a song for each element of the periodic table has been described as the first “true geek symphony.”
George’s range of skills include being the drummer and music director for the nationally recognized 70’s soul tribute band The Philadelphia Funk Authority; publishing a collection of essays called Non-Coloring Book; and even lecturing on diverse topics from jazz history to science— including a science track discussion about the non-radiometric evidence for the earth’s age at Atlanta’s Dragon*Con convention.
George is considered one of the preeminent skeptic/science/atheist/geek-culture music icons currently living in his apartment.”
