Appearing as part of the Governor’s Ball Music Festival’s ‘Gov Ball After Dark’ series, Chicago born rapper Noname will headline at Brooklyn Bowl on May 31st. Let this be the after party after your Gov Ball Day 1 experience – doors open at 11:00pm and Noname takes the stage at 11:30pm. Tickets are $40 each for General Admission, and the show is for those 21 and over.
Born Fatimah Warner, Noname planted her musical roots in 2010, when she began writing and performing slam poetry and freestyle rap. She continued to express her unique style through various collaborations with fellow Chicago native musicians, including Chance the Rapper, Saba, and Mick Jenkins among others. Noname exploded as an artist after featuring on Chance the Rapper’s Mixtape Acid Rap. She collaborated once more with Chance on his Grammy-winning 2016 mixtape Coloring Book, where she rapped a verse on “Finish Line/Drown.”
Apart from her collaborators, Noname has built up a significant rapport for herself – she’s got two full-length releases under her belt, both of which expertly showcase Noname’s intricate flor and smooth delivery. Telefone and Regal were also released to overwhelming acclaim from critics across the board, including Rolling Stone (who dubbed her “One of the Best Rappers Alive”), Consequence of Sound, and Pitchfork.
The evidence seems pretty obvious: if you’re into rap and know what’s good for you, you certainly won’t want to miss this exclusive show.
