MC Lars

MC Lars

MC Lars is the creator of post-punk laptop rap and lit-hop, which he has extended and powered into a fusion of rap, punk, rock, ska, pop and other genres. He is post-modern -- combining his music with powerful and present lyrics, and packing concert venues with raps about everything from the iGeneration to Guitar Hero to Edgar Allen Poe to Game of Thrones, the Simpsons and cyberbullying. He speaks to and for people of all ages, lifestyles, and perspectives, and is a story-teller, covering love, life, loss, confusion, and hope. He does so with energy and wit, joined with a strong sense of humor and perspective. He tours in the US, the UK and the rest of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.


In addition to touring, he has performed at Carnegie Hall in New York, at South by Southwest, San Diego Comic-Con, Slam Dunk Festival, Truck Festival, Orlando Nerd Fest, and as part of Vans Warped Tour. He has performed on stage with numerous artists, including Bowling for Soup, MC Frontalot, Wheatus, Say Anything, Gym Class Heroes, Simple Plan, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, Nas, and Koo Koo Kanga Roo.


He is a DIY Indie artist and a number of his albums have been funded by his fans through Kickstarter, at record-breaking levels. His work (albums, EPs, and music videos) includes collabs with a wide range of musicians - among them, "Weird Al" Yankovic, KRS-One, Sage Francis, Watsky, Mega Ran, Jaret Reddick of Bowling for Soup, Wheatus, the Matches, Ash Wednesday of Hand Job Academy, Kool Keith, Spose, MC Chris, MC Frontalot, YT Cracker, E 40, Schäffer the Dark Lord, Beefy, and K.Flay.


He is an active and successful player in the music industry's new media digital world; and has a strong presence with his fans through Patreon, Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, SoundCloud, and his own label, Horris Records. He is wired and connected, worldwide, through his active social media presence, his website, and his online store at Hello Merch.
His MC Lars: The Video Game and its sequel the Brotherhood are accessible through Steam, showcasing his songs in an engaging and fun-to-play beat-driven story about the compelling triumph of indie music.


Lars teaches and lectures, too, and his songs are used by fellow teachers in classrooms throughout the US. He has presented on TEDx and at numerous colleges and high schools. He has worked on a public-service basis with the American Heart Association, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the Nantucket Historical Association, the Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum, the New York City public school system, and the Los Angeles public school system through the USC Annenberg School for Communication. He is one of the artists featured in the Cambridge University Press Companion to Hip-Hop, and has continued to foster close relationships with faculty members at Stanford and USC.


His website is at mclars.com. He can also be reached through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

About Lola's Room

An oasis below the Crystal

The little sister of the historic Crystal Ballroom, Lola's Room is located on the second floor, directly below the Crystal. If you're a fan of DJ'd dance events, raging local rock showcases or intimate seated performances, then take a moment and bookmark this page.

The navigation menu at left is your roadmap to Lola's Room and the other offerings at the corner of 14th & Burnside. Check out what's coming up on the Events Calendar, let us host your next party or simply investigate our brewery, artwork and history.

A night at Lola's Room should always include a stop by Ringlers Pub or Ringlers Annex, where the vibe will fit your mood -- great pub fare, handcrafted beverages, engaging conversation, a good pool game, a rowdy party or a groovy DJ in a dimmed setting.

Never stop exploring! This website is a continual work in progress, and will develop over time. Watch for photo tours, sound samples from upcoming acts and much more. Meanwhile, be our guest, wander and enjoy!

Looking for your Crystal Ballroom and/or Lola's Room Passport Stamps?

A Crystal Ballroom, Lola’s Room & Crystal Brewery Tour occurs daily at 2 p.m. - meet at Ringlers Pub (street level below the Crystal Ballroom.) The tour takes about half an hour to complete. Any questions may be directed to the Crystal box office, 503-225-0047.

If you cannot make the tour, stamps for the Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room are also available when you see a show. The shows can be ticketed or free – as long as you’re attending an event in the venue, you can get that room’s stamp. Please note that if you’re attending an event in the Crystal Ballroom, you will need to attend a separate event in Lola’s Room to get the Lola’s stamp and vice versa. Stamps are always exclusively available in their own venue. 
 
Please note: Due to private events, concert setup needs and brewers’ schedules, not all spaces are guaranteed to be available to tour daily, but our staff will give it our best shot and show you the spaces that we can.
