THE BREWERYIf you’re planning to see the sure-to-be-surreal Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, which opens April 13, be sure to catch this aperitif. “Nerdcore” rapper MC Chris, who stars in the film as MC Pee Pants (his alter ego from Aqua Teen‘s TV incarnation), will open for Piebald with his fast-paced, pop-culture-reference heavy raps. His songs are hilarious and catchy, and his show at Cat’s Cradle a few months back was a killer performance. Piebald headlines and House of Fools opens. Tickets are $10 for the 8 p.m. show.
