Ruth B

 6:15 pm – 7:15 pm
City Stage

Ruth B. has emerged as a vital artist whose trademark vocal style and vivid songwriting narratives have set the tone for even more alluring reveals in 2017; namely, a robust 12-song debut album, christened by a lively new single, “Superficial Love”. How her career took flight is viral legend now, but it was the stunning vocal command and riveting lyrical flair she showed on her hit debut, “Lost Boy,” that won hearts and minds across the globe. “Lost Boy” is now certified multi-Platinum in the U.S. (x2), Canada (x3), Sweden (x3), the Netherlands (x2), Denmark (2) and certified Gold in Norway

 

Allan Rayman

7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
City Stage

There is little known about Allan Rayman, a young, cryptic performer hailing from Lost Springs. What you need to know is that he is a consummate storyteller. Through his compelling narrative, Allan writes his tale of love, which to him is the same as death. The compelling thing about Allan is that you never know what’s going to happen next. His sound and visual aesthetics are a product of his emotional struggle. With every release, Allan presents a new chapter of his story for the audience to experience. At the end of it all, you can’t help but start to feel a little bit worried about him. In his simplest form, Allan is a musician. For him, it’s all about love and music.

 

Post Malone

9:00 pm – 10:15 pm
City Stage

Dropping basketball references like the old-school but wrapping them in thoroughly modern beats, Post Malone hit in 2015 with his single “White Iverson.” Raised in Dallas, Malone was ‘NFL’ before he was ‘NBA’ thanks to a father who worked for the Dallas Cowboys. He loved music from a young age, and when his dad gave him a copy of Terror Squad’s hit “Lean Back,” Post decided to become an MC. He hung with Dallas crew the IRAS until a move to the West Coast dropped him in Los Angeles, where he coined the term “White Iverson,” and when he posted the track by the same name in early 2015, he hit a million views within the month. Malone signed with the Republic label later that year. In 2016, he released the single “Go Flex” along with his official debut mixtape, ‘August 26th’, which was actually released in May. Months later, his first studio effort entitled ‘Stoney’ arrived. The recording featured guests like Justin Bieber, among others.
