Noname Gets A Little Help From Some Friends

Pitchfork Music Festival - Sunday - Red Stage 5:15pm

Noname released her debut mixtape, “Telefone”, back in 2016, but started her set with the new music. Last month she tweeted the new project would be called "Room 25”, but nothing else is known about the project. Through out the set she made playing to such a large crowd feel more intimate through joke and comments.

The first cords of “Diddy Bop” received a huge pop for the crowd, and sound great live despite not having Raury or Cam O’bi to contribute their verses. When fans heard the first cords of “Forever” there was an anticipation of Ravyn Lenae coming back out to sing the chorus and she did to huge applause. However, Joseph Chilliams may have received an even bigger roar when he hit the stage. The crowd calmed after that performance and Noname performed a few more fragments of what may become “Room 25”. She even performed a cover when she was surprised she had so much more left on stage.

Everything in her set seemed to building to the finally, and drink in hand she seemed a little eager to get off the stage. None of that matter as she launched into “Shadow Man”. The Phoelix portion of the track was removed, but as she built to verse two SABA erupted on to the stage and the crowd followed suit. Then Smino, who had just performed on the Green stage before Noname’s set, came running out. It was truly one of the best moments of day and strong showing for Chicago Hip Hop.


Pitchfork Music Fest: A Chicago Showcase

There are always a few slots on any music festival for local acts, but this year Pitchfork has really gone above and beyond. Not only have they put together diverse line-up, they have crafted a line-up that will truly showcase the diversity of Chicago music today.

You have an array of Hip Hop and R&B, with SABA, Rayvn Lenae, Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, Kweku Collins, Noname, and Open Mike Eagle, that the city on a larger scale has become known for. However, you have a strong presence of the DIY scene represented by Melkbelly, The Curls, Circuit Des Yeux and Paul Cherry.

While there are so many more acts from the city that could fit perfectly with the sound and feel of this Fest, they have done a remarkable job pulling National touring acts, obscure Avant-Jazz group, and talented Chicago musicians to create what should be the best festival this Summer.

Pitchfork Music Fest is this weekend, July 20th to the 22nd, at Union Park in Chicago. 


Noname Tiny Desk

NPR posted their Tiny Desk Concert with local musician Noname last week. She has turned her recent debut mixtape Telefone into upcoming festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Roots Picnic, and more.



Noname (aka Fatimah Warner) has appeared on several tracks for Chance the Rapper and other over the last year, but earlier this month she finally struck out on her own. Her debut mixtape, Telefone, is a throwback to early '90's hip hop with tones of Digable Planets and Lauryn Hill.
