What do you do when your friend More Or Les calls you out of nowhere to request your presencer as part of his set for the most famous and beloved nerd musicoriented concert series in town? You RIP THAT SHIT TO SHREDS, of course! I was thrilled to rock “Whaddup Witcha” and “Get Back” for a wildly enthusiastic nerd crowd at the Horseshoe Tavern on the night of Sunday the 31st, adding some A1 B12 energy and inimitable Rhino pizzazz as an extra boost to Les’ already brilliant set. Shouts as well to Nerds With Guitars, the amazing Detroit dance act Johnny Headband, and the Cybertronic Spree, who dress up in costume and exclusively perform the instrumental music from the animated ‘80s Transformers movie (I shit you not! I’m talkin’ a dude in bigass devil horns absolutely SHREDDING on the geetar! Amazing!)Share
The Amazing Chokeules dropped his new album Stay Up! tonight (coincidence?) at Rancho.

Always a fun night at Rancho and $5 rap. And UltraMagnus was amazing as usual! As was fellow HHK SciFi holding it down in the opening slot! Big Ups!
