According to SEE’s Facebook page, Noname will no longer be performing at Terpstock.
SEE was just informed this morning that Noname is unable to perform tonight at Terpstock due to illness. We will post updates as we get more info.
Rappers Noname and Milo will headline Terpstock, the annual free outdoor concert at Nyumburu Amphitheater on April 8, SEE announced Thursday.
Noname is a Chicago rapper whose debut mixtape, the critically acclaimed Telefone, featured rising hip-hop stars like Saba, Smino and Ravyn Lenae. She’s also recorded music with Chance the Rapper and toured with Lauryn Hill.
Milo — formerly of hip-hop collective Hellfyre Club — has gained fans with his abstract, poetry-inspired flow and wordy, witty songs. He’s worked with fellow rap weirdos like Kool A.D., Open Mike Eagle and Anderson .Paak.
It’s a notably different lineup for Terpstock, offering two rappers after several years of alternative and indie artists like COIN, Phoebe Ryan, Vacationer, Sun Club and Cas Haley.
It’s also another example of Student Entertainment Events’ ability to draw bigger and bigger names, even for smaller concerts like Terpstock, while still sticking with the mini-festival’s goal of showcasing up-and-coming acts.
So when April rolls around and (hopefully) brings warm weather, you can look forward to spending time outside in the sun, listening to some of hip-hop’s most exciting young voices.
