A&R Music Bar – Columbus, Ohio
$17.00 Advance/$20.00 Day of Show
K.Flay is an American songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist whose music is an introspective, empowering blend of hip-hop, indie rock, and electronic music. Inspired by artists ranging from Missy Elliott to Liz Phair, her hard-to-define sound has garnered her a wide-ranging fan base, and has led to her sharing the stage with artists including Passion Pit and Snoop Dogg. Born Kristine Meredith Flaherty near Chicago in 1985, she first grabbed the mike while a student at Stanford University in California. She dropped her debut mixtape, 2004’s laptop-recorded Suburban Rap Queen
, and attracted local attention with her performances. After graduating, she moved to San Francisco and continued to develop her style. Her second mixtape, Mashed Potatoes
, appeared in 2009 with backing tracks that were more electro- and indie-oriented. She also collaborated with MC Lars that year, releasing an EP titled Single and Famous
. These releases were followed by a self-titled 2010 EP and 2011’s I Stopped Caring in ’96
, a personal breakthrough that inspired her to pursue music as a career.
K.Flay signed to RCA Records in 2012, releasing Eyes Shut that year. Following the self-released mixtape West Ghost, the What If It Is EP arrived on RCA in 2013, and included a guest appearance by Danny Brown. Her crowd-sourced, independently released full-length debut, Life as a Dog, appeared in 2014, and charted in Billboard‘s Top 200 albums. Following the album’s success, she toured the United States and Europe extensively, both as a headlining artist and as support for acts ranging from AWOLNATION to Third Eye Blind. She then became the first signing to Night Street (an imprint of Interscope Records run by Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds), releasing the Nashville-recorded Crush Me EP in 2016.

PromoWest Productions and Miller Lite Presents Sinkane
November 3, 2017
The Basement – Columbus, Ohio
$14.00 Advance/$16.00 Day of Show
Sinkane is an alias of Ahmed Gallab, a recording artist who sings and plays numerous instruments (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, et al.). His percussion-heavy style of music draws from a wide range of influences, most noticeably free jazz (e.g., Pharoah Sanders) and shoegaze (e.g., My Bloody Valentine). Born in London, Gallab also lived in Sudan for several years before he and his family moved to the United States. He made his debut in May 2008 on Emergency Umbrella Records with the EP Color Voice
; the same year, he toured as the drummer of Caribou and Of Montreal. A self-titled album was released in May 2009. He later signed to DFA — an ideal home for his trippy hybrid sound — and released a second album, Mars
, in November 2012, following it up with the eclectic Mean Love
in 2014. In 2016, Gallab entered the Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso to record his fifth album. The resulting Life & Livin’ It
, which drew inspiration from life’s joys and struggles, appeared at the beginning of 2017.
