I hope everybody is currently having a wonderful holiday season! There’s been a metric buttload of things happening in my life all in a ridiculously short amount of time and I want to share the news with you!
I can keep it a secret no longer! Starting on January 9th I will be touring the West Coast with Adam WarRock and Schaffer the Darklord. It’s pretty rare that any of us get to make it out to the West Coast, but all three of us on the same bill? And with all-star quality local support from folks like Dual Core, Mega Ran, Death*Star, Doctor Awkward, Beefy and more?!?!?! Yeah. You’re gonna want to be there when we come to your city. Here’s the schedule:

I’m also super excited to announce that I’ll be officially performing this March at South By Southwest this year as part of the Nerdcore Showcase! I was lucky enough to attend last year as hype-man to my good friend Mikal kHill (who just put out a new record, btw!) and it turned out to be one of my favorite events I’ve ever been to. Side note: last year at SXSW I ended up on stage to do songs with something like half of the showcasing artists, which got me noticed by MC Frontalot who then recommended me to mc chris for his tour. So, SXSW is literally responsible for one of the biggest opportunities of my life, which means I’ve got a lot of feelings about the event. And you all know how I feel about feelings.
Ok, so now let’s talk about some amazing things that just recently transpired. About a week ago I got home from touring the Midwest with Adam WarRock. We had an incredible time playing shows in comic shops and doing more laid back, storyteller sets. We met some super amazing people (including Marvel’s Jason Aaron, who I told about my undying love of Knuckles O’Shaugnessy from his Ghost Rider run) and played Magic the Gathering every night. It was AWESOME.
When the tour ended I promptly came home to my girlfriend of 7 and a half years and got married. We had a super tiny elopement ceremony two days before Christmas in front of our parents and siblings and then ate a baller lunch at the Horseradish Grill in Atlanta. SWAG.
I must say, I look good in a tux. Happy new year, y’all!
