The frigid temperatures that kicked off this year may have led you to stay in and catch up on some much needed relaxation after the busy holiday season. However it’s never too late to go out and enjoy some of the fun events going on in Chicago this winter!
Isaiah Rashad at Double Door - Jan. 20th
Hip-hop artist Rashad is a triple threat with his singing, songwriting, and producing skills. His most recent album, The Sun’s Tirade displays how profound he is and proves that he has much to offer. Isaiah Rashad is honest, using his own struggles as inspiration for his music which allows his audience to better connect with him. His content is not only thought provoking, but also precise. He is sure to have a truly original performance on Friday, January 20th at Double Door that can’t be missed!
DRAM at Metro - Jan. 27th
DRAM’s authenticity and soulful singing voice truly make his music enjoyable. He doesn't follow the rules of rap or let himself be confined by what a rapper "should be," so in return he produces more creative content. Rather than always basing hip-hop on struggles, DRAM strives to create fun and feel-good songs. Check him out at the Metro on Friday, January 27th at 9:00pm.
Noname at Metro - Feb. 8th & 9th
Noname instantly grabs your attention with her soothing voice and ability to show the importance of each and every word she sings.

Catch her at the Metro on Wednesday, February 8th and Thursday, February 9th at 7:00pm. Her beautiful performance will be a reminder of how she and everyone else can stay afloat during difficult times.
