Who the eff is MC Frontalot?

November 24th, 2007

Last night the Front rocked the Hawthorne Theater.

Advice, Hawthorne Theater people. When it’s 30 degrees outside, and you’ve got a show that bills itself as appropriate to nerds, turn on the fucking heat. A crowd full of teenyboppers or moshers may generate surplus thermal activity, the nerds? Not so much. Also, you really need more than two toilets, especially when you’ve got such spacious restrooms.

I fully expected Frontalot to kick ass, and of course he did. It was only an hour and a half or so, and he (seriously) rolls a D20 to decide what songs to play so we didn’t get to hear everything. I was disappointed to not hear Mountain Kind, but he played Front the Most, Indier Than Thou and Braggadocio, and I just realized that I’d have loved to hear Speed Queen and I Heart Fags.

His opening acts, neither of which I’d heard of, were surprisingly good. Schaeffer the Darklord (dig the resulting acronym) was funny enough to thoroughly amuse the bar staff. And the local opening act Sexypants was the surprise hit. Furthermore, in their t-shirts and short shorts they had to have been freezing but they soldiered on.

I picked up Front’s new CD, purchased from the Nerd his own self (okay, he couldn’t afford to hire people to work the merch table). I wish I’d had more money to gets some STD and Sexy Pants. But that’s what CD Baby is for, right?

And can someone explain to me encores? Is there anyone too dim to know that until the house lights come on, the show isn’t over?
