"Hip-Hop music will get a nerdy makeover when indie rapper
Adam WarRock performs at Geeksboro Coffeehouse Cinema at 8:30 p.m. on
Wednesday, April 23.
ACME Comics and Geeksboro will present the special live performance as a pre-show
for Free Comic Book Day on May 3. The show will feature opening performances by
Greensboro comedian Leo Hodson and nerdcore raper Alter ID (aka Bob Beshere).
Based out of Memphis, WarRock built his career on making music about the things he
loves – comic books superheroes, Doctor Who, Ira Glass, Game of Thrones, Buffy the
Vampire Slayer and other icons of the geek pantheon.
A former full-time lawyer, WarRock (real name Eugene Ahn) launched his music career
via a series of songs and music videos he released on his website. Shortly after the release
of his debut album “The War for Infinity,” WarRock gained a following and was soon
hailed as the Internet’s foremost comic book nerdcore rapper.
Fueled in part by his rapping skills as well as his tireless songwriting abilities, WarRock
currently has four albums released on iTunes and no less than 16 downloadable mixtapes
since 2010. His work has garnered the acclaim from such celebrity fans like actors
Nathan Fillion (“Firefly,” “Serenity” and “Castle”) and Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”)
and director Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”).
WarRock is currently touring to promote his latest album “The Middle of Nowhere.”
Tickets for WarRock’s Greensboro performance are $10 each and may be purchased
online at www.geeksboro.com or at Geeksboro’s café located at 2134 Lawndale Drive in
