A GB of gigs!

That title is utter bullshit. What follows is not a GB of gigs. It’s a few kB of gigs at best, but I digress.

Unbeknownst to most, nerdcore season is upon us, and I’ve got the skinny on a bumper crop of live events that you won’t want (Homophones rule!) to miss.

This weekend the East Coast explodes with nerdly music and also righteous indignation, but we do that last part every weekend so let’s just focus on the music. In New York, NY (The city so nice they named it twice. The second name is Manhattan.) Lower East Side Productions presents Shael Riley at Bar 169 on Friday November 17th at 10:00pm. You should totally go.

PThe Shael! You down with EPP?

The following evening, Sacred Grounds in Tampa, Florida welcomes back the Emergency Pizza Party crew. MC Wreckshin, Sir-Up, JeffMK, Betty Rebel, Fanatical, and funky49 will all be there, and Benjamin Bear may even be around as well. That, kids, is one helluva lineup.

After recuperating from your turkey high, you West Coasters will want to make your way to 164 Washington St. in Pioneer Square on December 2nd to a venue called FUEL and listen to Optimus Rhyme, The Goondocks, and Beefy bring the noise. Though not performing, I have it on good authority that a certain Mr. Karl Olson will be in attendance.

Though you already know that the man is currently touring, as they say, like a muthafucker, mc chris’s Hartford, CT gig on December 9th at The Webster is of particular importance due to the inclusion of opener Big Tizzle. Search as you like, you’ll be unable to find a larger tizzle anywhere!

Lastly, due to a scheduling conflict, the MC Lars/MC Frontalot Bowery Ballroom show on December 18th NYC has been relocated to the Mercury Lounge. Unfortunately, this venue is of the 18 and up persuasion. If you are under 18 and have purchased tickets, you can return them from whence they came.

Um, Z? There weren't any. (not that there's anything wrong with that...)

Cool that there's some East Coast love. Pity I'm not going to be able to make any of them.

Karl Olson said...

Yep, I'll definitely be at the Beefy gig, and who knows what friends I might bring ;)

/can't wait to catch that show.

Z. said...

Yeah, CHT, I’m not gonna be able to make it to any of these shows myself. Oh, and where I live “won’t” and “want” are pronounced identically. :)

Teej, I’m sure nerdcore will work its way down the coast. Just give it time.

Karl, you are a sly devil! ;) And speaking of your friends, give those lovely ladies my warmest regards.

SNIFF!! I wanna in the NYNY! Alas, nope can do. I wonder how I could convince them to come down this way? Seriously...if any of you see MC Chris, Beefy, MC Frontalot, or Optimus Rhyme how bout you put in a good word for NC okies? I'll have the club waiting for them!

With the exception of the occasional Optimus foray into Front’s NY territory, they and Beef tend to stay fairly westerly. I’m not sure how much liquor it would take to get Front back down the coast again, but I’d be willing to chip in on the bar tab. mc hit the tri-states at Carrboro, Mount Pleasant, and Atlanta earlier this month, so he may be a fair bet. Of course, I imagine he’s got promoters and booking agents galore by now, so Flying Spaghetti Monster knows if you’d ever be able to set stuff up.

Actually, now that I think about it I’m sure Beefy would be tempted by the offer (especially due to the ridiculous number of scantily clad ladies at said club), but I don’t know if he’d be tempted enough to drive cross-country.

Will you all be rhyming about lax customer service? I keed. I keed. ;)

Apologies to SLI for the unintentional exclusion.
