Don’t be fooled – “Beefy” is just his AKA. If you’re gonna be a nerdcore artist, what better birth name than “Keith.” That gives you nerd cred right there. (Even Keith Richards is a nerd at heart.) Beefy lives up to his name and is a formidable presence onstage. He has produced two EPs – The Whitesician EP and Nerd. His first full-length album Tube Technology dropped in 2006 on the Nerd South Records label, and he’s currently working on his second album during commercial breaks of Mythbusters.
