The Butterfly Club presents

PickUp Nerds are Sexy

A rock concert for people who like comedy. Roll for initiative!

As self-confessed nerds, PickUp look at why caring about things makes you hot. Live rock music comedy with scorching harmonies and intelligence. This new show is a sex-positive romp that is inclusive and fun for all.  

Nerds are Sexy is a celebration of nerd culture, of the things that make nerds special, as well as an empowering anthem for going out and having sex (consensually) as much, or as little, as you want to, and to hell with what anyone else tells you.

The feeling of insecurity that comes from sharing your passion and desire is true of those about to engage in sex, and those about to explain why Dungeons & Dragons is less practical for their adventure than Pathfinder. So, here’s the concert to let it all hang out. We share and laugh at parts of our own lives, including things about weird sex stories, polyamory, body and confidence issues and everything else that we can, in an effort to have you laugh, nod your heads and say 'Yeah, me too'.

PickUp are Alia Vryens and Colin Craig – Melbourne’s cutest smut merchants. They have been singing their personal brand of music comedy around Australia for the last two years and have received rave reviews and sell-out crowds. You can listen to their music on Spotify and Bandcamp.
