Our next Go Show starring FREEWIFI and Friends is this Saturday night! For some, meeting new people can be overwhelming, especially when they’re rocking the stage like the cat’s pajamas.
Thus, to help prepare you for your new closest chums, we’ve assembled a quick introduction to your new pals, buddies and cohorts before you bond and start making memories that last forever.
Headlining the show Saturday night is FREEWIFI, the hottest rap trio in the Twin Cities. An American King Ghidorah consisting of J. Plaza, Angelo Bombay and Daddy Dinero, FREEWIFI are celebrating the release of their new album Connected. Boasting a wide-array of flows and infectious beats, hearing one of 2018’s most anticipated albums live on stage is going to be one for the record books.
Armed with what may be St. Paul’s hottest Soundcloud, the emotive and engaging Nimic Revenue walks the line of trap and alternative for a sound wholly her own. There’s nothing airy or aloof about tracks like his Allan Kingdom-assisted “SK8BOARDFLEX,” Nimic is as engaged as she is engaging.
One of the most acclaimed live performers of his generation, you may have seen Student 1 rock at a Soundset afterparty or any number of local shows that he’s effortlessly stolen. A hyperkinetic syllable stacker, his tremendous skills as an MC are only matched by the fashion achievement that he’s somehow managed to make the rapping-on-stage-while-wearing-a-backpack look work.
Champlin, Minnesota’s favorite son, Devon Reason‘s calmly abrasive demeanor makes him one of the coolest curmudgeons on record today. A frequent collaborator of Finding Novyon, with whom he makes up one-half of supergroup The Rotation along with Dwynell Roland and Travis Gorman, in addition to Devon’s recent history of show-stealing guest appearances makes him one who definitely plays well with others.
The first and only four time winner of Go 95.3’s #ShutUpAndRap, Khari Flowz has made a tremendous impact in just the two months of 2018 alone. Her star-making performances have awarded her the unique distinction of not even needing to compete in the season of #ShutUpAndRap’s championships, rather an instant graduation right to the Go stage.
