Former Stanford student and tom-boy k.flay brings her dirty lyrics and sneakerhead steeze to the left coast next week before heading east for Bonnaroo and more. To celebrate her trip South, which includes a stop at The Constellation Room in Santa Ana and The Central SAPC in Santa Monica, we’re paying homage in a blog post (and dishing out some free tickets to The Central show….)
If you don’t know much about Kristine Flaherty – she’s originally from Illinois and got the rap bug after moving to C-A to attend Stanford. She claims her latest offering, Eyes Shut, is a response to 20-something apathy and an introspective nature. With a colorful experience (she’s toured the country as a solo white female rapper, her father died at age 14, etc.) – there is probably a lot of truth in her lyrics too. You can witness first hand for yourself in SoCal this coming week or at Bonnaroo, where she drops 3 performances including That Tent at 4:15 pm on Thursday, and then later that night at The Silent Disco and again on Friday at the Silent Disco around 4 pm.
Don’t miss your chance to catch this little spark plug before she releases a full length and blows up! If you want a chance at winning tickets – send us a picture of a dirty street name similar to this k.flay photo. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can tweet out @supergoodmusic @thecentralsapc and @kflay along with a hashtag of your most creative dirty word!
