En serio, dudes, there is a musical genre known as nerdcore hip-hop. It was started by a rapper and web developer known as MC Frontalot, but that was like almost 20 years ago. These days, the nerdcore banner is being illustriously, riotously and musically waved by a fellow named Christopher Brendan Ward, who is known as MC Chris in the parlance of the field. He’ll be performing at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW) on Sunday, Dec. 8. Note to self: This guy went to art school just like Thom Yorke so it’s okay to take him seriously even if MC Chris did voice the character MC Pee Pants on “Aqua Teen Hunger Force.” The rapper and comedian left teevee behind to concentrate on his career as a performing artist in 2004. His best album, Eating’s Not Cheating, dropped that year. Shubzilla x Bill Beats and Rusta Rhymes open this can of nerdy, body-moving worms. 8pm • $20 • 21+.
