Princess Nokia played Elsewhere with Blood Cultures (pics, video)

Rising rapper Princess Nokia‘s tour brought her to her hometown of NYC for two shows at Elsewhere this weekend, presented in conjunction with Moniker Art Fair. Princess Nokia used the occasion to showcase material from her recent “emo mixtape,” as well as some older material. She also, like she did at a recent Chicago show, covered blink-182’s “I Miss You.” Billboard writes:

The emcee’s stage boasted gifts from fans, including a Cinco de Mayo piñata and a smiley-faced plush toy, which a loyalist hurled at her shoulder. Still, she graciously thanked everyone in attendance before comically detailing her last “beautiful” experience on acid as her audience laughed uncontrollably. The old school-invoking “Goth Kid” served as the perfect hip-hop transition into the emotional wax of A Girl Cried Red. A bass player, drummer, and guitarist accompanied her under bright strobes for as she segued into the project’s lead single, “Your Eyes Are Bleeding.”

Check out pictures from Saturday (5/5) night’s show, including openers Blood Cultures, in the gallery above, and a few fan-shot videos below.
