NERDS! TIME TO DROP SOME BEATS WITH FATBOY ROBERTS!

ATTEMPTED RAP
Featuring tracks by Fatboy Roberts
Fri, 9/23 at 11:30 pm @ The Highball

You've always known you could throw down with the best of them, and here's your chance to do just that! Fatboy Roberts, your fellow movie-obsessed basement dweller, has been hard at work for years making transcendent, funkified remixes of his favorite movie, TV show, and video game themes -- everything from STAR WARS to BARNEY MILLER, THE PRINCESS BRIDE to SUPER MARIO BROS. His Geek: Remixed albums are just about as rad as it gets, but here's where you come in, would-be gift of gabbers: we want you to throw down and perform a rap to a Fatboy Roberts track in our all-out Battle Royale for nerd lyrical supremacy at Fantastic Fest!

So stop sweating the technique and bring it. But first, some rules:

1. You must perform a rap to a Fatboy Roberts track of your own choosing. Check out the tracks here. We'd prefer it if your lyrics match the track, ie if you're using Fatboy's PRINCESS BRIDE mix, you're rapping about Fezzik and Vizzini. Rhymes abound with those two!

2. Practice it. This is a real competition, yo.

3. Submit a video of your best performance to info@fantasticfest.com.

4. The best rappers will be selected to perform at the mega-epic official Fantastic Fest ATTEMPTED RAP players ball at The Highball on Sept 23. There, the audience will vote on the Nerd Rap Player Of Players. Couldn't hurt to bust some bitchin' moves, while you're at it.
