US tour is announced. And it's soon. Expect Front and his merry band (and Dr Awkward! and Corn Mo!) to roll through in August and September. You'll see them if you can make it to Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne, Chicago, St Louis, Omaha(?), Denver, Salt Lake City, Boise, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Fullerton, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas, Austin, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, Baltimore, Philadelphia, or New York!
Details and ticket links are filling up the gig calendar as they become available.
San Diego Comic-Con approaches! You must (must) join Front, Lars, Awk, Schaffer, and the burlesque stylings of Devil's Playground. Tickets remain available. Your MC will also appear on the floor of the con, though mercurially. Mark your schedules: Front vends and signs at the Dumbrella booth (#1337, really) from 1:30-3PM on Saturday and Sunday. And that's it!
Do we know when Front's new album, Question Bedtime, becomes available? We do! It is August 26th.
A tour accompanies this release! Or should we say tours? Front covers the USA (Aug 19-Sept 19), UK (Sept 24-Oct 27), and Australia (directly following). What a robustly scheduled autumn. Details are so soon to come.
Front is very close to finishing his sixth album. Are you excited? You should be excited.
Express that excitement by purchasing some tickets for this summer's freshly-announced concerts in San Diego (Comic-Con), Vegas (DEF CON), and Orlando (Nerd Fest). Details, as usual, adorn the gig calendar.
Here's another exciting thing: Front was invited to do a li'l cameo on the upcoming Mike Doughty album, Stellar Motel. You have a month left to get in on the fancy-style crowdfunding of that project.
Oh! And David Malki is hiring animators to work on a secret(?) MC Frontalot video that he's making. You should bug him about that if you do animations and you like work.
Front and the whole band and some robots grace the stage at PAX East pretty soon! They are lined up for the Saturday Night concert. But! You should cancel all your Boston-leaving plans afterward, because the gang teams up with Random and The World Is Square for an After-PAX blowout at Great Scott on Monday the 14th. Tickets? Tickets!
This week our salty old MC lounges in Berkeley with Ma Front and Doggy Fresh, nursing his fallen arches and reminiscing on the lovely week he so recently had in Austin for SXSW. Can we believe that he has made that journey seven times now? Good lord. This year he caught performances by his Nerdcore Showcase compatriots Random, Schaffer the Darklord, Jesse Dangerously, MC Lars, Dr Awkward, More or Les, Tribe One, Adam Warrock, and Teenburger, as well as all these fine folks: Doug Funnie, The Returners, Tonight The Moon Tomorrow The Sun, Big Freedia, IQ, Flosstradomus, Mother Falcon, Hieroglyphics, Souls of Mischief, Dams, Wheelchair Sports Camp, Sage Francis, M. kHill, Timbuktu, Milo, Open Mike Eagle, Nocando, Busdriver, Rittz, Tech N9ne, and the Stapletones. As Front left town, there was also one singer/songwriter clinging to the fuselage (like in the Twilight Zone movie) but nobody caught his bandname.
Front is working extra hard on his next album, Question Bedtime. It is a collection of fairy tales and folk stories from all over the place! You will use it to menace children, amuse adults, and keep beverages from blemishing wooden table surfaces. More on all this nonsense soon, probably.
For now, content yourself with the new Nocando LP, the third episode of Life With Jeannie, the fresh new mc chris double album, the KS/IGG campaigns for Lars's impending album and Sole's newest project, the Patreon campaigns of Frontal Allied Forces Octopus Pie and Scenes From A Multiverse, Ran's latest video, and whatever foolishness Front posts on Vine.
