I went to the El Corazón with klicrai and woflieboy this evening to watch a bunch of nerdcore artists. I've always hated hip-hop. I've considered it stupid, senseless, angry, unimaginative, homophobic and misogynistic. Nerdcore is hip-hop that's fun. :-)

My favorite two artists there were MC Frontalot and Beefy. I wish that MC Hawking had been there too. But the lineup that was there was plenty enough for an enjoyable evening.

Something about clubs always makes the lyrics to things much, much harder for me to understand though. And for hip-hop, especially nerdcore, that's a big deal.

Rock! That's so cool. I'm a nerdcore fan by default (ever since I heard of MC++), but still don't like hip-hop. -_-;

We need more nerd-othergenre-core music!

Isn't MC Frontalot going to be at PAX, too? You and your nerd-world-hopping Seattle.

I've been a fan ever since I heard of MC Hawking, which I believe was before MC Frontalot came up with a name for the genre. :-)

I agree. I think one problem is that geekdom in general is pretty verbal. Hip-hop lends itself well to expressing ideas like that.

PAX? Where's that? I'm really bad about knowing stuff like this. I normally rely on friends to tell me. Which is really sad because if Delerium ever goes on tour again I'll be really unhappy if it turns out I missed them.

It's in Seattle, end of august. :P

MC Frontalot, Optimus Rhyme, The 1ups(didn't know about them before), NESKimos... A folk rocker with songs like 'code monkey'...jeez, lots of cool stuff.

Wish I could go, especially since e3 dissolved.

You're a fan of Delerium? (+1!) But seriously, I would kill to see that tour happen.

I have a spare futon if you're think you'd want to come up here for it. :-)

And Delerium did tour in 2003, one of the very few concerts I've been to, and one of the only ones I took the initiative to attend myself. I went to see them in Minneapolis. It was really great, except for the brief period of time someone was smoking a crack pipe near me. That stuff smells incredibly nasty, and I wasn't so happy to have that powerful a mood altering substance being used as an aerosol or vapor anywhere near me either.
