The Trocadero plays host to a loaded concert headlined by Chicago’s Saba. His big production rap nips at the heels of Chance the Rapper, relying on some classic flow to send his way into the musical wheelhouse of every hip-hop fanatic, and his Bucket List Project was one of last year’s highlights. The show is all ages, and more information can be found on our XPN Concert Calendar.
Brooklyn’s Big Theif is heading up Johnny Brenda’s for another fantastic gig. Coming out of the woodworks of this new New York chill indie scene, Big Theif’s soulful vocal work and perfectly placed guitar work makes them a force to be reckoned with. The gig is 21+, and more information can be found over at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Folk trio Ladybird head over to Ortlieb’s for another show with The Belle Hollows. The band brings their southern drawl to a stripped-back country-like sound, a perfect fit for the 3rd Street venue. The show is 21+, and as always, find out more information/tickets at the XPN Concert Calendar.
