Romancing The Nerds: a Valentine’s Day hip-hop concert

Romancing The NerdsWhether you’re single or coupled, if you’re looking for a lively and fun Valentine’s Day plan, PGC member Dangerous Kids has you covered: they’ll be presenting “Romancing The Nerds,” a show featuring artists who are focused on all things comics, video games and science fiction.

From their press release:

Headlining the show will be Adam WarRock, making his first stop on a short west-coast tour. A nationally-recognized comics and pop culture hip-hop artist, WarRock’s press kit is riddled with glowing reviews from outlets like the BBC and Wired, as well as celebrity endorsements including Nathan Fillion (Castle, Firefly), Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim, Sean of the Dead) and Marvel author Matt Fraction.

Also joining WarRock on stage will be a new local duo “Michotomy.” Comprised of Portland emcees, Kiew Nikon (Kinetic Emcees & Analog Brothers) & Pwn Toney (Kielen King/Star Pilot’s Revenge), Michotomy will be joined on stage by their friend and local comic shop manager Sean Wynn (aka Badd Wolfe).

Opening the show will be “Bad Habitat,” the local, fan-voted winners of “Jammin” 107.5 fm’s “Open For Snoop Dogg” Contest. Bad Habitat has also opened for Slick Rick, Rahzel, Bizzy Bone, Digital Underground and many more well known acts. They recently released their first full-length album “Scissor Tree” and are already working to produce their next release.

The team at Dangerous Kids is the geeky glue bringing this show together, and their own DJ Switch will be spinning throughout the evening, as well as DJ SugarPDX. For more information, go to www.dangerouskids.net, or get the latest on Dangerous Kids Facebook.
