Spoken Nerd and Listener CD Release Show at Humankind 

Breaking It Into a Holy Huddle

Breaking It Into a Holy Huddle
Nashville's favorite dread-headed Christian hip-hop absurdist Spoken Nerd is back once again with his umpteenth record in as many months, Apocalypse Awareness Day. This record finds him further pursuing his Pedro the Lion-meets-Kool Keith combination of indie-rock influence and off-the-wall rhymes — raps about vintage video games and parables about farming collide head-on with “Christmastime in the Club,” often with hilarious results. Nerd's brother from another mother, Listener, who happens to be the freshest MC to ever walk out of the Ozarks, is also supporting a new release. Return to Struggleville harkens back to the heady ’90s spoken word before MTV drove the entire concept into the ground, mixing emotional stories of everyday disasters with sparse, atmospheric tunes.
