Jonwayne – SOLD OUT
Tickets: £9.50, 12.50
Times: 8pm - 12am
Soundcrash are excited to invite Stone Throw’s very own Jonwayne to perform his first UK headline show at Birthdays, 24th April 2014. It was a successful year for Jon in 2013 with the release of his debut album ‘ Rap Album One’ which received amazing feedback from the majority including winning album of the year at Gilles Peterson’s WorldWide Awards 2014!
Jonwayne came onto the Los Angeles music scene by way of the east LA club Low End Theory cira 2008 – 09, then emerging as the epicentre of a new generation of hip-hop beat makers: Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer, Nosaj Thing, Kutmah and Daedelus. Fresh out of high school, Jonwayne jumped in with homemade rap mixtapes and immersed himself in the scene. He first became known as a producer, releasing the album Brower (2011) – but it was his over-sized skill on the mic that caught the attention of Stones Throw’s Peanut Butter Wolf, who signed him to record his first album as an MC.
His immense beat-making ability is a breathing a blast of air into the sort of hip-hop sound that excites serious-faced rap fans and stoned-skateboarders alike. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the talent of Jonwayne, up close and personal in this intimate venue!
