It is a tough row to hoe, this not-quite-famousness that Frontalot enjoys! The tough part is having venues and times changed on him willy-nilly. So:
ALERT: December 18th show at Bowery has been moved to Mercury Lounge. And it is now 18+ instead of 16+. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Bowery tickets will be honored at the door at Mercury. Any 16-year-olds who bought tickets are encouraged to return them to their place of purchase for full refund or else redeem them for a free horsey ride at the congressional page office. That was pretty lame, okay. We're trying to lighten the mood here.
Front has had a nice weekend! He saw the freakiest goddamn thing down at the science museum. It did not inspire him to leave his body to science; apparently that just gets you turned into RotLDesque sculptures by a crazed Hun. Then he went to see Kid Beyond and Imogen Heap at the Avalon; an amazing tour that Front heartily recommends to dorkfolk and hipster scum alike. From there, he proceeded to a BM Decom party, which reminded him so pleasantly of home. Boston begins to seem livable! Soon the arctic flurries begin, obliterating that notion in its infancy. Cheers!
Holy smokes, it actually turned out okay! Somehow, the shadowy coalition of Finnish hax0rs and Diebold necktie-wearers failed to enact Taskmaster Rove's nefarious bidding, and an insufficient percentage of votes got routed to the bit bucket! What's more, the worst of the game-riggers from the last couple rounds lost their bids. We're sure their crew will try harder next time. But for now, it's seeya to the forces of eeble while a (very) slightly less pro-war, (almost) equally oligarchical bunch of rightists takes the reigns. Isn't it cute how ravingly out-of-touch our MC seems? What, did he vote green again? Oh fer crying out loud.
Speaking of seeing things, here's a 3-step process for Shin-Chan: 1) view it; 2) deem it awesome; 3) go mouth off on the adult swim bbs about how awesome it is, so that Dorkin and Dyer get more work scripting hilariously subversive nonsense for the existing characters to say in the new dubs.
buy some Frontalot tickets! Bowery Ballroom is on sale for December 18th at 7PM. That's Front's big-ass super megashow with MC Lars. For the first time in NY, you can be sixteen years old and attend anyway. Plus: if you miss this show, Santa will bring you a lump of camel excrement instead of a pocket calculator that shoots lasers.
Front and The Sturgenius spent an evening at the chillingly awesome Slaughterhouse Studio in western Massachusetts recently, to lay down many a funksome track for the upcoming album. Proprieter Mark (known also as Out Out) engineered. Wait, new album? You can barely stand the anticipation. Afterwards, Jeff fed Front beers.
Are you in NY this Thursday (the 9th)? If so, see Front's key man Gm7 performing in a 2-man show called "Songs That Don't Suck (And Are, In Fact, Delightful)." It is an evening with Joe Iconis and Gaby Alter, 11pm, Thursday November 9th at Mo Pitkins (34 Avenue A, Manhattan), $5 cover, Free Pie. You heard that right. Free pie. Who wants pie?
