Stanford graduate and hipster hip-hopstress K. Flay makes her way into Los Angeles this evening, where she performs with wallpaper., The Dance Party (Hell Ya!) and Dude Royal.
Born in IlliNOISE – K. Flay began making music in her dorm room shortly after heading West. Now, with a lot of industry heat around the quite talented female artists, she’s making music everywhere – from studios to apartments to the front seat of her car (wonder if she was making music with Amp on her car on the day of this photograph?).

K. Flay takes stage at 9:30 and may just steal the thunder of fellow rappers Dude Royal and wallpaper. Flay will be at home with Bay Area electro-hip-hop funkster wallpaper – whose live show is definitely worthy of anyone’s attention. Wallpaper’s received some good nods for recent live remix work of Passion Pit and Das Racist – and who knows what he will pull out tonight.
Dude Royal is an L.A. native also worth your time. If you heard the radio friendly “Love High” last year – you might already be on top of this show and be aware that he is not merely a rapper, but also a singer. If you didn’t – check it out and check out the show tonight if you can!
Also on the line-up are The Dance Party, whose debut record was released on Hell Ya in late 2010. Despite not fitting all that well with this line up (why have The Dance Party with rising hip-hop artists?), The Dance Party will certainly be giving lessons in their expertise areas – Dancing and Partying.
If you want to have a good time, get your dance on and Party – go to Troubadour tonight!
