Penny Arcade Expo East! Fast is how it approaches. Front and bandmates take the stage Saturday night with beloved compatriots Jonathan Coulton, Paul & Storm, and the Video Game Orchestra. Please note that Front's set occurs at one in the morning, and that if you cannot navigate the lines at the early part of the evening's proceedings, you are sure to have an easy time wandering right in around the beginning of the rapping portion.
If you can't make PAX (or can't ever get enough geek muzex), stop by the Middle East in Cambridge the Monday following for a double dose: MC Frontalot and the Protomen rock the downstairs on the 9th. Tickets! Get one.
Our ill-rested MC is recently returned from South By Southwest in sun-dappled Austin, TX. There he performed with Jess Klein, Jesse Dangerously, Schaffer the Darklord, the ThoughtCriminals, Teenburger, Thesis Sahib, Adam WarRock, More Or Les, Brandon Patton, Random, ytcracker, MC Lars, Math The Band, Peelander-Z, and seemingly countless others (actually 14 others). Whew! In between shows he managed to attend performances by the Shins, Busdriver, El-P, the Magnetic Fields, Fiona Apple, EPMD, Bad Rabbit, Das Racist, War On Drugs, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Bear In Heaven, Reggie Watts, Sleigh Bells, the Black Belles, and Jean Grae. Oh, and comedy from Hodgman, Mirman, Schaal, Kyle Kinane, Kurt Braunohler, and a dozen more. SXSW: it is like a whole thing. You should check it out some time. Front and the band extend their thanks to Barcamp Austin, Lynda, Plaidlad, and the Andersons for making the whole thing possible.
It is time again for South By Southwest in sunny Austin, TX! Front's got three shows in store for you: first is barcamp on the 10th with the whole band, and a set by the untameable Jess Klein. Next comes front's headline slot at the official nerdcore showcase on the 13th, at the Flamingo Cantina with a bevy of geeky rappers and plenty of Canadians. And finally, a short (sweet!) solo set in the midst of the impossibly awesome Peelander-Fest on the 17th.
Next, it's off to PAX East! Front plays Saturday night (Apr 7th) with Paul & Storm, the VGO, and Jonathan Coulton), and then rocks the Middle East in Cambridge on Monday night (Apr 9th) with the glorious Protomen.
And it arrives! Stoop Sale is the latest video from Solved, which is the latest album. You may have the single for download on the mp3 page, the video for download on the videos page, the youtube version in glorious 1080p for sharing everywhere, the lyric on its lyric page, the CD (and its other singles) on the CD page, the MP3/AAC/FLAC album in our electric music store, or the refrain in your shower, as you chant it aloud whilst scrubbing.
