Noname & Ravyn Lenae began tour in Chicago with Akenya (pics)
Chicago’s Noname had one of the most well-received rap debuts of last year with Telefone, and she just began her tour in support of it at the Metro in her hometown last night (2/8). That was just a few days after playing opening night at Chicago’s new House of Vans.
Noname’s whole tour is with her Chicago neighbor Ravyn Lenae, who released the very good Moon Shoes EP last year, and last night’s show also had additional local support from Akenya (cool bill all around). Pictures of last night’s show are in the gallery above. She plays the same venue again tonight (sold out).
Noname and Ravyn Lenae will land in NYC on March 2 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show are still available. Noname returns to NYC for day two (7/29) of Panorama, the same day as Tame Impala, Alt-J, Nicolas Jaar, Belle & Sebastian, Vince Staples, Mitski, Pinegrove, and more.
