This week we announce Natalie Grace Alford, Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era w/ Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers and Shabazz Palaces w/ THEESatisfaction to perform in two of our favorite venues, Memorial Union and Union South.
With song in her since she was a young child, Natalie Grace Alford continues to use her gift of music to create eclectic, mesmerizing songs with the power of loop technology. Her music is truly artistic expression. Come see Natalie Grace Alford for yourself on February 22nd in Der Rathskeller at Memorial Union.
Also taking place in Der Rathskeller, but branching on a completely different genre, will be Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era with Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers on April 12th. So much love for this young rap artist Joey Bada$$ and he’s rightfully earned it. His verses are consistently strung along to an entrancing beat that makes your head bob up and down in respect. Start waving your hands back and forth in the air in preparation for the April show.
Those hands might continue to wave in the air until the next weekend for Shabazz Palaces and THEESatisfaction on April 20th in The Sett at Union South. Shabazz Palaces produce enticing beats that get under your skin for the purpose of swaying your body. It is the perfection of hip hop and nostalgic soul combined. But in an interview with Pitchfork, Shabazz Palaces explains their unique “creational process […] may have nothing to do with nothing. Your background may have nothing to do with how you do your music.”
More shows to come in the future, but for now, check out our WUD Music Calendar.
