ZEUS COMICS TO HOST NERDCORE RAP ARTIST ADAM WARROCK SHOW
DALLAS—Zeus Comics and the hit Web series The Variants brings nerdcore rap artist Adam WarRock for his Dallas debut Sunday, February 27th at Alexandre’s Bar. Come see Adam’s deft lyricism and hip hop beats for this one-night-only performance.
Adam WarRock (http://adamwarrock.com) 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.
WarRock went on to release his debut album, The War For Infinity, in the Fall of 2010. The Dallas concert marks one more stop on his nationwide tour of theaters and comic book shops.
Zeus Comics (http://zeuscomics.com) is a multiple national and local award-winning comic book store known for innovating in the field of comic book retail. The WarRock concert is partly sponsored by the Web series the Variants, which will be on hand for the performance to film footage for a future episode.
Zeus Comics has copies of Adam WarRock’s album The War For Infinity for sale in advance of the concert and at the show.
Admission is free. The show is 21 and up. Alexandre’s Bar is located at 4026 Cedar Springs Road in Dallas.
