Kids Rock @ TOP: MC Frontalot

This event is intended for all ages.

MC Frontalot is a proud nerd who takes the stage in glasses, tie, and pocket protector to rap about webcomics, computer games, blogs, and Star Wars conventions. He coined the phrase “nerdcore hip-hop” to describe his music about the geeky subject matter closest to his heart – and made it a subgenre of its own!

Presented by AADL and the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, this is the second concert in Kids Rock @ TOP, a series of Sunday concerts at Top of the Park.
