D Mills and Nazeem & Spencer Joles open for Ric Wilson

Chicago's nouveau disco rap superstar, Geneva-visiting activist, and community goofball Ric Wilson has dropped two crucial EP's "Soul Bounce" (2016) & "Negrow Disco" (2017). After such he's sold out Chicago's Schuba's venue, Chop Shop, performed at festivals such as North Coast Music & Tour De Fat, and has opened for Chuck D, DRAM, The Roots & many others. The 22- year old electrified motivational funka hop pop poet has much more to prove and show to the world.

Ric also, is one of the 8 delegates chosen to travel to Geneva, Switzerland in November of 2014 representing the We Charge Genocide coalition. They successfully presented a shadow report and testified at the United Nations, charging the Chicago Police Department with genocide and torture actions on Black and brown youth within the city of Chicago helping to create a worldwide connection. The trip was covered all over the US and countries foreign including Daily Mail (UK), 20 Minuten (Switzerland), MSN France, Japan Times, Zee News (India), Gulf Times (Qatar), IOL News (South Africa), Straits Times (Singapore), Business Reporter (Pakistan), Breitbart.

Nazeem & Spencer Joles, Student 1 and D Mills at Icehouse

$6 adv / $8 doors
10 p.m. showtime
21+

Nazeem & Spencer Joles, Student 1 and D Mills join forces for a hip-hop show loaded with thoughtful rap delivery, dirty/raw beats and creative sound dimensions. 

Nazeem & Spencer Joles
"Each raps with a style that pushes forward while the other pulls back, complementing one another’s lyrical flow as each song mounts in rising tension ... Spencer’s production darts between folk, classical, and pop music, and he says he tries take aspects from each and incorporate them into his beats." - The Current

Student 1
"It's a decent shorthand to describe the young rapper's affinity for wordplay, his open-book self-consciousness, and his primary influences. (He cites Slug and MF Doom specifically, and you can hear hints of Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper as well.) But "backpack rap" hardly begins to capture Student1's open-ended grasp of modern hip-hop" - City Pages

D Mills (Diane Miller)
D Mills (of D Mills & The Thrills) performs solo hip-hop by making her own beats organically with a loop station. She's been described by critics and fans as "unexpected" and "inspirational" for her wild ability to rap and sing from a poetic, engaging voice. It's unexpected in that Diane is a quiet, unassuming person off stage, originally from Fargo, ND. It's inspirational in that Diane's abilities are bold, creative, raw and strong.
