Noname
Noname has been in the orbit of notable Chicago hip-hop talents for many years, collaborating with Chance The Rapper, Mick Jenkins, and Saba, but her time to shine on her own finally came last year with her debut "Telefone." The young star performed for less than one hour on Friday night, but her gleeful demeanor, gospel-style backing band, and willingness to connect with her crowd left fans gushing. The only disappointing aspect of the evening's music was Noname's vocals being placed far too low in the mix, often allowing for audience chatter to overpower the main event. Her in-ear monitor hung from her shirt for most of the performance.

Opening act Arima Ederra, a Los Angeles-based soul singer, provided a similarly warm and friendly 35 minute set. Accompanied only by Noname's guitarist, Ederra showcased her powerful voice and led the audience in several emotional sing-alongs and clap-alongs.
