On Monday, Aug. 14, K.Flay will bring her brand of lo-fi hip-hop to The Saint — fresh from her appearance at the Outside Lands festival. Originally from the Chicago area, K.Flay composes songs that combine elements of indie pop, simple hip-hop and a lyrical fascination that often edges on the darker fringes of the human psyche.
Following the release of her first mixtape in 2005, K.Flay’s slowburn of notoriety would still appear to be growing, with her albums charting on the Billboard Heatseekers Album Chart, and an opening spot on Imagine Dragons’ nationwide set tour set to begin this fall. Her first album would be released nine years later after navigating through DIY ethos combined with tumultuous large record label relationships.
The opener is Layne, a two-piece synth band combining danceable electronic beats and pop radio ready female vocals from Los Angeles.
All online tickets for the show are sold out. However, some tickets have been reserved for the door on a first-come basis.
