Last night's wild little show in Houston's hidden punk-rock grocery The White Swan ended beautifully with a honky-tonk sing-along. Tonight's New Orleans shindig at Howlin' Wolf should be a little less intimate, yet equally awesome.
You already know all about Front's Jacksonville show on the 2nd, but have you heard about the last-minute birthday blowout in Orlando? It is December 3rd (that is when Front's age notches up again) and the party starts at A Comic Shop at 5pm, then proceeds to Black Box Collective for the rapping portion from 8PM onwards.
Texas! It is big, it is wide. In Austin, the conglomerated forces of Nerdcore soaked up a turkey feast, wrecked shop onstage, saw their pals Jess Klein and The Brother Machine, and ate hells of breakfast tacos. Now they race towards Dallas for tonight's tomfoolery, and tomorrow it's on to Houston. Join them there. Or in NOLA the next night? Jacksonville, unbelievably, the night after that? What about Orlando, recently added for December 3rd? You might as well consult the calendar for details on all of these things.
Front is actually, amazingly, charting a little bit on college radio. Please use telephone technology to keep the pressure on. By this we mean: make requests. The album is called Final Boss.
A special note on Friday's Austin show: you must go see the movie first! It's at the Alamo Draft House Ritz downtown. It's at 7, which is just completely perfect for enjoying the movie, pestering Front at Q&A, then marching down the street to see the concert at the Flamingo. Nothing could be more serendipitous.
