MC Chalkskin is a San Diego based nerdcore hip hop artist that has been rocking stages up and down the west coast for years. He's got two albums, a handful of EPs, three music videos, and has gotten praise from top artists in the genre.
But despite his stage persona's back story, few people know that the artist MC Lars called a "talented breath of fresh air" is actually from Ohio! True story, bro. Dude went to Big Walnut High School and Kent State University! He worked at Camp Lazarus!
Now the celebrated rapper will be coming home to perform for the first time in the heart of it all! He's going to take flight in the birthplace of aviation! He's going to tackle the Buckeye State! And he's doing it all just for you!
Columbus based rockers Slopapotamus will be storming the stage as well, proving that Cleveland isn't the only town in Ohio that rocks!
Get ready to groove, because Slop playsthe best dance music from the 70's to today.You won't be able to get enough of the strong, cutting vocals and harmonies of Megan and Anthony. Or the rocking riffs of Dan, the funky bass of Matt, or the funky beats of Patrick. Add to the mix a killer pop synth from Jeff, and you've truly got a recipe for a great time.
It's going to be an ambitious and furiously rocking show, and you simply have to be there. It will be the kind of night you will want to tell your grandkids about.
Some packages are web exclusives, so get your tickets now!
This is an 18 and up event.
PRESS RELEASE: With uncertainty always looming and a desire to further extend our fanbase, Chalkskin is pleased to announce that on Monday (May 13th), our entire catalog of music will be available to download for free. The reality is that music belongs to everyone, and great music should be shared! Chalkskin's "Party Singles," "Fresh Donuts," "PayDay," and unreleased material truly qualifies as great music, and we feel it would be a shame if it was never heard by those out there who would truly love and appreciate it.
Of course, Chalkskin will be seeking alternate methods of sustaining ourselves and amassing new funds in order to continue the luxury of creating more content. The album will still be available on paysites, and merchandise and live shows - as well as a paypal widget for donations on chalkskin.com - will always be an appreciable way to support us as we strive to create music that gets your head nodding, your face smiling, your feet moving, and your heart beating. We truly appreciate each opportunity we have had to tell our stories in the past, and we hope to be in a position to do so sometime in the future.
Chalkskin is about community. All those who listen to and love our music are a part of that, and we want to encourage everyone to get out there and share the love! Be a Chalkskin Warrior!
