Boston! Check out the NR:TM site's current post for info on how to get in free to the Frontalot / Prince Paul concert Sunday night. Requires immediate action, also small amount of luckiness. Hop on it.
You anywhere near Atlanta? Still one chance to see Nerdcore Rising: The Movie down there. It's at 2:40 PM on Tuesday at the Landmark, 931 Monroe Dr NE. If you are in IT, you will take off of work for "technology training (ongoing)." If you are a student, just play hookie. Tix here.
Front caught the Gnarls Barkley show in Manhattan the other night. He was kind of expecting Dangermouse on the cuts and Cee-Lo with a microphone. Instead it was a glorious 8-piece band done up in high sixties soul splendor. See them if you can. Not to be outdone, Paul Simon showed up at BAM last night with a 12-piece and about twenty singers, to do most of Graceland (the first CD Front ever had, right around when Discmans got invented, sometime in the Paleolithic, when he was young). The rapper in question caught that show too. Old folks danced in the balcony.
IFF Boston is next! Showings are the 23rd and 25th, with a Frontalot show at the swanky party afterwards. Party tickets are available! They're pricey, but there may be a special lottery over at NR:TM to get you a free one. Stay tuned.
The folks at AFI and ReelFX sure did treat the Frontalot band and NR:TM crews to a fine time in Dallas. The movie went over well! The concert also went over well, though it was entirely weird to perform for various glamorous movie peoples in an upscale boutique. Did one of Front's devoted nerdfans wipe his or her fancy-hors-d'œuvre-coated fingers on a rack-hanging $9,000 casual contemporary? Or was that Blak Lotus? So hard to keep track of fingers when the free booze pours so liberally.
New best pickup line Front's ever heard: "If you were a Magic card, I'd tap you."
