A nice recording of Sunday night's show will be available soon to VSP type peoples.
A doe-eyed young Superman currently gracing Imaxes inspires Front to revisit the second installment from his youth. It was not quite as rad as remembered (except for Zod, who is perfection). And now other films of the era are not quite as recalled. Perhaps someone's been interfering with Front's brain again.
Newsflash! Front's going to be in New York City on the weekend of July 21st. He'll be attending the HOPE convention and trying as hard as he can to impress the real hax0r types with his pathetic low-res nerdery.
Then Sunday night (7/23) Front does a live set at Club Midway in alphabet city, with the inimitable Jess Klein opening. The show is a mere seven dollars, starts at 9:30, and is open to those eighteen years of age (and older).
Front just saw Robot Chicken for the first time. It is like the perfect array of childhood nostalgia references for 30-year-olds, turned into dirty jokes via action figure stop-motion animation. Front is kind of irritated that he didn't think of it first. I mean, he has all those action figures. They're in mom's basement it Berkeley. In boxes. With silica gel.
Tomorrow night A week from Thursday, you have to watch a major network to see Nerdcore Rising's Pr0n S0ng beatsmith Doctor Popular busting out his primary talent (yo-yo mastery) on a show called Master of Champions. That is a dumb name for a show. But it is awesome that doc pop gets seen by sixty zillion people (estimated viewership).
Also regarding TV things: Front is the "celebrity" programmer for a blog called Make Me Watch TV this thursday. We're all on the edge of our proverbial chairs.
Oh, and Front is more or less sure to be performing in or around New York on the 23rd of July. He'll be at HOPE that Friday night (7/21) and Saturday (7/22), regardless. He's working also on a Boston show before PAX. Yes, yes, you will be able to buy 2006 Tour shirts there. Stop freaking out.
Number one most importantest thing! Front is seeking a new booking agent. He or she must work nationally, be comfortable with clients like Front (medium draw, devoted fans, no label in sight), and carry the hearty recommendation of an experienced touring band (you?). If any of the wonderful folks who read this news post have a solid lead, let Front know ASAP.
Strange happenings afoot at the Circle K! Not like George Carlin descending from the heavens or anything, and also they do not have Circle K's around where Front lives, but still. Strange happenings.
A book about white people and hip-hop is expected from cub reporter Jason Tanz in February. Front to feature prominently? Then why is he so clearly an African American in this flash video of Gonna Be Your Man by a mysterious Canadian?
And other Enigmas haunt us. Why has Front waited so long to share these recordings from Creepy Crawl in Saint Louis last month? [ they are: Yellow Lasers, War songs medley, Floating Bridge ] And why does he require you to join the VSP before you can hear eight more tracks from that set? Why oh why oh why hasn't Front told us about his favorite tracks from the mammoth 4-disc nerdcore compilation Rhyme Torrents? Perhaps he still struggles feverishly to compile said list. Know that Baddd's blisteringly hottt NCHH remixery and Hawk's indefensible rap-rockization of Mountain Kind are potential includees.
