Le1f at Afro-Punk Fest 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
As discussed, one of the many New Year's Eve concerts happening in NYC is local rapper Mykki Blanco at Gramercy Theatre, and since we last spoke, guests have been announced for that show. The bill now includes production wizard DJ Rashad, UNO R&B singer Ian Isiah, Boychild, DJ Larry B, T.E.A.M.S., Junglepussy, Princess Nokia, and Michael Magnan. Tickets for that show are still available and if you buy them before 11:59 PM tonight (12/2) you can skip the service fees thanks to the venue's Black Friday-Cyber Monday deal.
A few days earlier, Mykki's friend Le1f plays Brooklyn Bowl (12/28), and guests for that show were recently announced too. They include some of the same names playing Mykki's show, like Ian Isiah, Junglepussy, and Princess Nokia, plus House of Ladosha, Lakutis, and Mess Kid. DonChristian and Boody Rahel are opening, and Juniana Huxtable and Superpusha are hosting. Tickets for that show are still available too.
As mentioned, NYC rapper Mykki Blanco is playing a hometown show at Mercury Lounge TONIGHT (1/16) before heading out on a European tour. Since we last spoke, openers have been added for tonight's show, including Boychild, Psychoegyptian, Fatherhood (who also opens for Laurel Halo and Teengirl Fantasy soon), and Dope Body. Tonight's show is sold out, but you'll have another chance to catchy Mykki in NYC later this year at the larger Bowery Ballroom on April 2. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (1/18) at noon. It's Mykki's only announced North American date that we're aware of at the moment.
A stream of Mykki's 2012 debut mixtape, Cosmic Angel: The Illuminati Prince/ss, and an updated list of dates, are below...
