Noname in Concert
329 E Sheridan Ave
Chicago-raised artist Noname, aka Fatimah Warner, blurs the lines of poetry and hip-hop through the music she’ll perform during her headlining tour stop this March at ACM@UCO Performance Lab in Oklahoma City. Elton, with local music act Original Flow and The Fervent Route, will open.
In 2016, Noname's debut album, the “Telefone” mixtape, found the artist introducing herself to a worldwide audience. Describing the project as “an introductory conversation with someone you’re interested in,” she quickly earned everyone’s attention. In September 2018, her full-length studio album “Room 25” was again received with universal acclaim. A Rolling Stone headline declared, “Noname is one of the best rappers alive.”
She grew up in Bronzeville, a historic neighborhood on Chicago’s southside that has famously attracted accomplished black artists and intellectuals of all types. After releasing “Telefone,” she relocated to Los Angeles, where she’s said she prefers live comedy to high-dollar indulgence. In fact, NME said of her most recent album, “Much of ‘Room 25’ is not only smartly constructed — it’s laugh-out-loud funny. … It’s flawless.”
