When: Sat., July 14, 6 p.m. 2018
There’s an odd mixture of awe and inferiority that comes from someone younger than you being way, way more successful — think child actors or 17-year-old Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim. Rico Nasty, a rapper who turned 21 in May, fits into that category. She’ll be performing at Freek Show, an “all-night warehouse extravaganza” that will celebrate the work of women, people of color and the LGBTQ community. Nearly 20 other performers and several DJs will take the stage to keep the party going until 3 a.m. The festival’s proceeds will be donated to My Mind Matters, a group that fights mental health stigmas in local black communities.
