1. Tuneful geeks
We are who we are. Yet The Nerds are the only ones to accept this.
The New Jersey rockers play a blend of TV themes, soul and classic rock. Their stage show and banter was largely influenced by “Monty Python,” David Letterman’s love of the absurd and Howard Stern’s disregard for tact.
More often than not, pointless arguments onstage about trivial matters became a regular part of the band’s act.
You can start geeking out over The Nerds’ concert at 10 p.m., Saturday.
