MC FrontaLot w/ MC Lars & YT Cracker at Garfield Artworks this Saturday 12/13


What is NERDCORE? Nerdcore, also geeksta rap (get it?), is hip hop that deals with important nerd issues such as programming, code, star wars, science, gaming, politics, math, science ficition, and many other geeky pursuits.

Pittsburgh is being graced by none other than MC FrontaLot this Saturday night at Garfield Artworks for a nerdcoreapalooza of sorts. The night will include Building Better Bombs, Seawhores, MC Lars, YT Cracker, and MC Frontalot.

I love MC FrontaLot for rhymes like this – sample from Indier than Thou:

Delving deep into my letterbox when I discovered
fan mail for MC Front. It kind of hovered
before my vision. I made a decision to open it up.
It said, “Yo, Frontalot, you suck!”
Whew! I was worried for a second that I’d started to earn love,
seeing all my indie points burned up.
Next you know, I’m meeting pop stars in stretched cars,
doing the soundtrack for the Wendy’s tie-in with Jar Jar,
paying rent on time, owning things,
suing Napster with my best friend Sting.
It’s like a nightmare (yep), ‘cause that ain’t nerdcore (nope).
Yes, I’m indier than thou within my nerdcore flow.
And if you’re slow on the uptake, I’ll lay it out:
hipsterism is a religion to which you got to be devout.
Must be seen as in between unpopular and hated
or else get excommunicated.

After experiencing Indier than Thou again, I really feel like heading over to Brillobox…

This is going to be a super fun show that is totally up geekstar’s alley! Rap, Rock, and Nerds Galore! I hear Podcamp Pittsburgh will representing too! Podcamp is all things social media and part of geekstar’s crew. How nerdier is that to have an entire audience of geeks at a nerdcore show? Heaven!

I’m also excited to see MC Lars. My good friend, Walt Ribiero, wrote some of the string arrangements on his new album. If you’re looking to learn music theory or play an instrument, you must check out Walt’s site at Walt somehow posts daily instructional videos, but you’ll see…he is kind of full of energy.

Some MC FrontaLot reviews:

Miami New Times
“The beats are tight, the production is crisp, and most of the hooks are catchy pleasures that rattle around like “Loser”-era Beck.”

Time Out Chicago
“Frontalot, the bald and pasty San Franciscan who coined the term nerdcore, is the catchiest and funniest musical comedy act we’ve heard since Tenacious D.”

  3. I have observed that charges for on-line degree professionals tend to be an awesome value. Like a full 4-year college Degree in Communication from The University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online comes with a Bachelors of Business Administration with a whole school feature of 180 units and a price of $30,560. Online degree learning has made taking your education far less difficult because you can certainly earn your own degree from the comfort of your abode and when you finish working. Thanks for all the tips I’ve learned through your blog.
