Front took to the stage at Soundz in Harlem the other night to an appreciative and close-pressed throng. Various web luminaries were in attendance. It was good clean fun with a one drink minimum. Who could ask for more?
Okay, fine; here's lots more: San Francisco on the 29th! Do not miss it under any circumstances. An opening act has yet to be booked... is your band, magic show, or burlesque display a fine fit for Front? Write in with sample tracks if so.
Then! Off to the south and up into the midwest, starting May 12th. Those details will follow as the confirmations roll in, but we can share this much: between Spartanburg and Kalamazoo there are somehow 5308 miles.
Hey nerd. Yeah, you. You slaver for Negadon, Nacho Libre, future eps of House of Cosby. You seek Frontal infos at Voiceworks and CynicCenter. You wonder silently to yourself whether the Rolling Stones ever shilled for the Rice Krispies and whether anyone ever rendered the Simpsons intro without drawings. May you soon know peace in your nerdy heart.
OF NOTE: ambitious film-maker (and all around classy broad) Negin Farsad is putting together a large-scale indie documentary on Frontalot and nerdcore. She needs an intern in NYC! Her specs:
You better get in touch with her right this very instant.
Front has big newses for you!
LIVE SHOW in Manhattan on Sat, March 4. This one is way uptown [see details, left], and Front needs you to come out in full force so that he does not feel lonely. The door is ten bucks (five of which goes to the bar for your drink ticket). Keep in mind that Front's rapping improves immeasurably when you're drunk.
The next hot hot Frontal live-action appearance will be back in his hometown of San Francisco near the end of March. Get excited early; there may not be enough time to get properly excited once the details are set. We are that stingy with info around here.
And then... holy smokes! Front tours the southern states in the second half of May. He will be in the Carolinas, Florida, Texas, Tennessee, you name it. There is so much to do! Front must arrange so-called Street Teams, prepare himself mentally for southern hospitality (it can be kind of shockingly pleasant), buy several pairs of high-impact touring slacks, shop for in-ear cordless vocal monitors, and get his hands on a van. Wait, you have a van that you want to loan/rent/sell to Front starting around May 12th? Perfect! Write in.
The dommah vid for Which MC is here [QT, 22MB]. If you don't love you some quicktime (a quite reasonable non-love) there are low-res versions on youtube and google. Browsing youtube reveals other fan-made goodies.
Is Front missing several published interviews from the info page? His book keeping really is quite miserably bad. Write in with URLs or scans to aid him towards archival integrity.
Frontalot wishes love and happiness upon all his fans, whether they be shopping for relationship-affirming undies or just shopping for a relationship. To those who proudly eschew love and its Hallmark-engineered annual observance, Front offers a song he recorded a long time ago in which Gm7 yells at him for using the word "eschew."
There's a show coming up! It is again a Manhattan gig; its details will slowly emerge on the upper left of this very page. Why so often the NYC visits? Front has been too much busy to put together a Boston band. But this oversight he seeks to undo! Do you know a great and funksome drummer who would be excited to work for Front in the Boston area? For that matter, Front is short one bassist and one keyboardist. Write in with leads.
Impending LA superstar director and all-around fine gentleman Dom Mah delivers a fan video for Which MC Was That. It stems from some footage he caught with his pocket digicam when a sober Gm7 and a Scotch-wielding Front came upon an In The Groove machine in a bowling alley. If you want to laugh at Front for getting a low score on his own song on hell of easy mode, this is your chance: (quicktime file, 22MB).
Speaking of videos! Several teams (and a couple of dangerous loners) are working on vids for their favorite songs from Nerdcore Rising. Front feels mightily thankful for these volunteer efforts. On the other end of things, nerdcore auteur Keith Schofield likes the idea of tackling a video for This Old Man — but won't, since Front cannot muster the seven or eight thousand dollars that would constitute the barest minimum of video budgets. Any wealthy fans with poor impulse control are urged to write Front's video fund a huge check right this very instant. Your name will appear above the title.
