MC Frontalot - 4Earlier this week, I heard on Penny-Arcade that MC Frontalot was coming to Minneapolis for his third show on 11-15-2007 at the Triple Rock Social Club. Last time I heard he was coming to town, it was the same day as the show and I already had something going that night. So this time I was damned if I was going to miss it.

I had never heard of his opener on the tour Shäffer the Darklord (STD), but he was great even if he does have an unfortunate stage acronym (his joke, not mine) and his interactions with the crowd and with his partner The Black Box were brilliant.

MC Frontalot - 1I've liked MC Fontalot's music on my iPod, but I've got to say that it's much better in person, even my wife liked it once she could watch the band interacting and playing to the crowd. They really made this an interactive show too. The first thing he said when he came out was "We're throwing out the set-list tonight and making this an all-request show. Who's got an MC Frontalot song they want to hear?". The request was made and then "Okay, but you've got to roll at least a three.". She rolled a six and the show started. The one person who rolled a natural 20 was invited to dance on stage but, being nerdcore, elected to choose a second song.

The final song was Nerdcore Rising and was prefaced by the crowd yelling "The time we are having is acceptable!" in unison and the keyboardist prompting us to sing the chorus "Nerdcore could rise up" to start the song.
