MC Lars

#sxsw #MCLars


Listen to Art of Darkness (featuring Sage Francis)

MC Lars makes intellectual indie hip-hop music backed by live instruments and video projection screens. He has been touring non-stop since 2003 and has built a loyal fan-base by opening for acts like Snoop Dogg, Nas, Gym Class Heroes and more. He has created a genre called "lit-hop", where he writes songs about classic Edgar Allan Poe and William Shakespeare works. He just played the entire Vans Warped Tour followed by an eight week club run. His new album is called "Lars Attacks!" and just came out on Lars's own label Horris Records. His music sounds like a mixture between the Beastie Boys and Daniel Johnston.
