Heads Up: Nerdcore Alert

If you don’t have a genre that fits your style of music, just make one up. That’s what MC Lars did. He calls his style “Post-punk Laptop Rap,” others call it nerdcore, but I just call it fun. His sound is similar to the recently popular Flobots, just slightly funnier and with a tad less ego thrown in.

Check him out next Tuesday night at Jammin Java for crowd-pleasing songs like “Download This Song,” which makes fun of out-of-touch record companies, and “Internet Relationships (Are Not Real Relationships).”
