Date March 12Venue Commodore BallroomPrice $59commodoreballroom.comc
Since first appearing on Chance the Rapper’s Acid Rap album in 2013, American rapper and poet Noname has been slamming studios with her complex rhymes and nuanced stories. Unlike many millennial musicians, she’s deliberately absent from the public eye: she rarely does press interviews, she doesn’t shoot music videos and her Instagram feed might leave diehard ’grammers feeling hungry. So if you want to experience Room 25—her latest neo-soul album featuring heavy hits “Blaxploitation” and “Self”—there’s only one way to do it: get out of your sweatpants, run a comb through your hair and live it for real.
