Frontalot is in Austin, Texas, for some kind of film, internet, and music festival thing! Nice. The nerdcore performances are Mar 20th and 22nd. Here's a flyer for you to email to your most Texan friends.
If you take a peek at Song Fight, you might be lucky to catch sight of a secret fight that Fightmaster John used to propose to his lady friend. (She said "sure, why not!"). It's called The Proposal. Gm7 and Baddd Spellah might have helped with one of the tracks! There's no rapping involved, so it will be complicated to figure out which one.
SxSW updates will be coming fast/furious for the next 9 days or so. But they will be on Front's Twitter feed, which is abbreviated these days on the front page (over there ==>) or in its full glory at herezzz.
MC Frontalot, Bl4k Lotus, and several dear old comics-reading friends were seated at midnight for Watchmen. Here's Front's reactions, in BBS post form.
Noo Yawkaz! Do you like Williamsburg? Not especially? Well, you might want to go there anyway. There's a free screening of Nerdcore Rising on Monday night!
South! By! Southwest! See previous news, below.
2nd Austin show added! It's showdown time, pardners. South by Southwest begins on the 13th, and Front will be there all week to backup his Interactive associates, watch movies while eating tex-mex, and then rock two badass concerts. First one is an official showcase at Prague on Fri the 20th, with Jesse Dangerously, MC Lars, Terp2It, and a lone-star-sized roster of other rap acts. But if you're not going to have a festival pass or wristband, fear not! The Sunday night show at Spider House will have normal human-priced tickets (and all the Nerdcore of Friday night). Details on that one coming extra soon.
Speaking of MC Lars, do you know what just came out? His brand new album! It is his best so far, and not just because it features a full-fledged duet with MC Frontalot ("Original Gamer," another track in which Front expresses his inner curmudgeon). Here's what you do. Purchase it. Don't dilly dally.
Okay, whippersnappers! It's not the eighties any more, but you're still excited about the next issue of Watchmen. If you happen to be on Court St in Brooklyn for the midnight show on Mar 5th, give Front a high five. Or let him cry on your shoulder in the event that Mr. Snyder has ruined everything.
Speaking of people named Zack, one of Front's old SF buddies wrote the Sunday Times crossword for the 8th. So maybe there will be some kind of secret joke in there about nerdcore rappers. We aren't counting on it, but we'll be purchasing some print media that day anyway. Y'all can put your Kindle Twos right in your bottoms.
