It’s been a while since Tampa’s New Granada Records organized a bigger show, and it's returning with a banger of a Crowbar gig.

You may know him for his work on the popular Cartoon Network shows “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” or “Sealab 2021” or maybe from his geeky hits like “Nrrrd Grrrl”—but voice actor, animator and nerdcore rapper MC Chris (stylized, "mc chris") returns to Ybor City’s Crowbar this summer.

Tickets to see mc chris at Crowbar in Tampa, Florida on Friday, July 1 will run you $15 if you purchase them in advance, or $18 if you wait until the day of. Tickets for this all-ages gig can be found on

mc chris raps about a wide variety of nerdy subject matter—from "Dungeons and Dragons" to "Star Wars"—as one of his most streamed songs is still 2001's “Fett’s Vette.”

Support for this summer show comes from Crunk Witch and Swell Rell—two high-energy musicians that give this gig an electric edge. Crunk Witch is a husband and wife electro-pop duo, while Swell Rell is a nerdcore rapper who just dropped his latest single “All Star Wiggins” earlier this year.

This is mc chris’ first tour since 2020, as his most recent headlining set at Crowbar happened in 2019. His 19th release titled King in Black will hit streaming platforms later this year, in conjunction with his upcoming "The Last Tour."
