PAX! What glorious fun it seemed. The rapper and his bandmates extend their thanks to every enforcer, every attendee, the HD troll and goblin team who construct the thing in question, and Khoo who tirelessly churns the crank. See Front onstage via one of the many crowd-captured video snippets, watch him chat with Fuse or XBLA, or just ponder him in puppet form like you've been doing.
In Brooklyn? Don't miss Frontalot's May 4th show with Wheatus, Math The Band, Schaffer The Darklord, and Jetblack Bullseye. Tickets abound, but perhaps won't for long, so purchase posthaste.
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.
