Rapper and producer K.Flay looks more like an indie-rock chick than someone who spits rhymes. The electronic/hip-hop artist uses rhymes as a "sonic technique," writes the New York Times. "She represents a generation of white kids who grew up with hip-hop but who weren’t obsessed with it so they feel rhyming is theirs to use without needing to pay homage to the culture." She told Spin her latest EP, Eyes Shut, which was recorded on a coffee high, is "about wanting to float away, but also wanting to tie rocks to your shoes." She performs with Cheyne and Gage at DC9. 8:30 p.m. $10/$12.
