MC Frontalot, Brandon Patton 

When: Mon., April 5, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $8-$10

Given the number of dorky white kids in sagging pants during the '90s, it was inevitable that some middle-class honkies would eventually reference pop and geek culture in raps more than cars and guns. MC Frontalot isn't the best Nerdcore rapper—that's MC Lars (bite that, MC Chris)—but his witty, self-effacing flow is everything gangsta isn't: amusing, self-aware, intellectually honest. His beats have an electronic, new wave bent that sometimes recalls Devo, and his subjects include urgent email pleas from deposed Nigerian royalty, "Tongue Clucking Gramarians" and backtalking genius infants. How can you argue with rhyming braggadocio and Ralph Macchio? —Chris Parker
