The new single and video have arrived! I'll Form The Head, from the album Solved. The flicker drama occurs at YouTube in full HD, or is available to download and treasure on our video page. Carly Monardo and her team did a bang-up job on it. Make sure to watch it over and over. The audio is ready for your various devices in MP3 or AAC format. The lyric is provided for your convenience.
What else is afoot? There are upcoming concerts in Charlotte and Miami and Melbourne; see the gig calendar. Front complained about another movie over at SBFMC. That nice young fellow wil.i.am tried really hard to make a nerdcore song, which actual nerd rappers will have to find kind of adorable. Front drew a couple of submissions for jerkcity HD.
Springtime encroaches on our Frontalot's corner of Brooklyn! He hides from it fearfully, clutching DJ CPU, hoping against hope that his new album of fairy tales will get done in time for PAX Australia.
Also on the horizon: Florida Supercon on 4th of July weekend! It will be the first visit ever to Miami for Front and bandmates. Won't you join them there?
And before that? Front flies solo in Charlotte NC on June 7th and 8th for Heroes Con and the SouthEast LinuxFest. Comics, okay, sure. But that other thing? Front sure plays a lot of events associated with an OS that he's basically too dumb to use! Be certain to drop by and heckle him about that, about his trousers, about any other deficiencies he brings to the table.
Front's impossibly talented flatmate Meredith Gran is currently up for a Reuben and an Eisner! If you are someone who gets to vote for those things, vote wisely. She has to win everything so that she can spend less time fretting over her career and more time getting drunk and watching terrible car movies with Front in the living room.
We enter year ten of Frontalot's frolicsome stage antics at the Penny Arcade Expo. Front will be on the Saturday program in Boston, with our beloved JoCo, Paul & Storm, and Sam Hart. Also be sure to catch Front at the hip-hop panel Friday morning and at his booth in Bandland all weekend long
And were you aware that your likely inability to score a PAX badge does not entirely hinder your weekend's excitements? Front and the Protomen are onstage in Cambridge at the Middle East on Sunday evening, to destroy any hope you had of peace and rest.
Then? Frontalot (and indomitable nerdcore rapmaster Random) hop a flight to San Francisco to perform at a party for GDC. You'll need a con badge to get in, we think. You can RSVP for free or buy a VIP ticket for about what a Midwesterner spends on rent. We assume the VIP area will include solid platinum ecigs and a free backrub from Gavin Newsom.
Hey, our MC wants to thank some folks who made SXSW such a slam-bang wham-doodle this year: Tim for hosting the whole band, Kat Jones and Minor Birds for letting Front hog the best room in the mansion all week, Rico and Mikey and Ian and crew for being fine concertgoing companions, Schaffer and Int0x80 and kHill and Jesse and the WB and Les and Lars and Ran and Adam and Tribeone for keeping the stage live and the crowd explosive throughout the official nerdcore showcase, Adam A and Plaidlad for showing us yet another great time around town, and Lynda for making the whole thing happen. And are you ready for the full report on Front's music venue traipsery? He managed to see (big breath): Reggie Watts, Chaos Chaos, Seryn, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Kyle Kinane, Hasan Minhaj, Amanda Palmer, DJ Spooky, Protomen, Louis Logic, Open Mike Eagle, Prince Paul, Ultramagnetic MCs, Geto Boys, Earl Sweatshirt, Linkoban, Lucy Love, Tribe Called Red, Heliotropes, Death Grips, Big Freedia, the Pharcyde (well, Imani and Booty Brown), and Mos Def. Sorry about how there's no hyperlinks in that list. Internet probably has enough hyperlinks already. We don't want to mess things up.
Here's Front talking to Rapstation about hip-hop stuff very recently.
