Adam WarRock in Concert presented by Zeus Comics & The Variants

Adam WarRock presented by Zeus Comics & The Variants - Alexandre’s Bar - Dallas, TX 02.27.11

Zeus Comics and the hit web series The Variants bring nerdcore rap artist Adam WarRock for his Dallas debut this Sunday, February 27th, at Alexandre’s Bar. Come see Adam’s deft lyricism and hip hop beats for this one-night-only performance. The Blot can’t even begin to tell you how bummed I am to be missing this show! I’ve been looking forward to Adam WarRock’s show in Dallas ever since Zeus Comics owner Richard Neal first teased the show almost 6 months ago. Sadly, due to some prior commitments here in Houston I won’t be able to travel to Dallas for the show (and The Variants Season 2 taping). But just because I can’t attend the show doesn’t mean you shouldn’t!

Adam WarRock is widely known as the Internet’s foremost comic book nerdcore rapper. He has gained a following through his tireless song production, biting sense of humor, and sharp eye for geek and pop cultural topics to skewer in hip hop form. First gaining widespread attention after filmmaker Edgar Wright discovered his “Scott Pilgrim” recap rap, WarRock went on to gain further notoriety with the single “Ira Glass,” which turned the name of This American Life’s host into a verb for living life boldly. Mr. Glass personally gave the song his blessing.

Zeus Comics & The Variants present Adam WarRock in Concert in Dallas, TX on Sunday, February 27, 2011

WarRock went on to release his debut album, The War For Infinity, in the Fall of 2010. This album, along with WarRock’s West Coast Avengers Mixtape, has been playing on The Blot’s iPod constantly since its release. I highly recommend downloading both albums ASAP! WarRock’s upcoming Dallas concert marks one more stop on his nationwide tour of theaters and comic book shops.

For those of you unfamiliar with Zeus Comics, it’s a nationally recognized comic book store known for its innovation in the field of comic book retail. The WarRock concert is also partly sponsored by the web series The Variants, which will be on hand for the performance to film footage for a future episode.

Alexandre’s Bar is located at 4026 Cedar Springs Road in Dallas, Texas. Admission is free, but you must be 21 and up to attend. If any readers of from the DFW attend this show please hit me up and let me know what you think! All is not lost though, rumor has Adam WarRock will be making his Houston debut in May for Comicpalooza! More details to come…
