Got more on Nerdapalooza.
Announced as a headlining band, Math the Band, a duo from Providence, RI doing electro music with combination of old video game systems, analog synthesizers and other instruments. A high energy show to catch.
Also is returning is local rock band Beebs and Her Money Makers. They have a new album coming out and their own comic book. Nerdcord rapper YTCracker,who Nerdapallooza refers to as “the undisputed nerd rap king.” Now why I do like his work, I just do not see him as the king. Go check him out and decide for yourself though. Most interesting is a band by the name of No More Kings. They got some attention in 2007 with their song Sweep the Leg that was inspired by the Karate Kid movie and its video which featured a large number of the movie’s cast.
And if you are looking for something the day after Nerdapalooza, check out The Day After sponsored by Mammoth Sound. It is a entire extra day of Nerdcore hip-hop. The event will be at a bar called “The Haven” on Monday August 6th. The Haven is a large venue with a full size stage for the show, a full suply of liquor, non-stop bear on tap, and a top of the line sound system.
The Headliners for the show are MC Lars, YTCracker, and Random aka. MegaRan. So that will be awesome.
Joining them is mixed bag of other artists. Soup or Villainz, King Pheenix, Former Fat Boys, Epic-1, ProjektZero, Magitek, HD Ninja, Klopfenpop and NES-T, Emergency Pizza Party, Rappy McRapperson, JPHONIC, Shinobi MC, Shammers, StarF, Sample the Martian, and Bro-bot (Feat. 8bit Duane). Personally other than the Former Fat Boys and Shammers, I do not know a lot or care about any of the others. Would be a good chance to check them all out though.
The guys handling the after party dance, and doing some spinning some on turntables during the show, are DJ RoboRob, Ben Briggs (from OCRemix), and tanner4105 (aka. “T-Byte”).
Tickets are $15 pre-reg or $20 at the door. You can also pick up tickets at Nerdapalooza.
