Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Good news, nerds. Another night of booze and brain-teasing is about to hit the Valley, this time led by a Space 55 regular and a mobile karaoke bike operator at FilmBar in Phoenix.

From 7 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, February 20, Nerd Nite 18 will cover everything from eccentric self-appointed emperors to everything you don't hear in sing-a-long bar songs.

Kicking off the night will be local poet, playwright, and performer Ashley Naftule telling the true tale of San Francisco's late Joshua Abraham Norton who, in 1859, declared himself Emperor of the United States.

Next up will be Sean Whitcomb presenting his talk, "The Dark Side of the Mic: Karaoke, Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuits, and Murder Karaoke," followed by an hour of actual karaoke. So get ready to think, sing, and sling back a few beers as downtown's nerd community gets together for another free night of thought-provoking mischief.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
