Jan 28

  • Admission: $15 + Service Fees
  • Time: 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM

If alien means belonging elsewhere, perhaps Kid Filthy is someone who belongs everywhere. The shy rockstar finds himself at home in the eclectic and the contradictory, effortlessly pairing petaled shirts and glasses, suturing vulnerable lyrics to heavy, sinister instrumentals.

Born in Congo, DRC in 1997 Mica Ntabaza was painted from a mosaic of influences from a young age - from Kanye West to Speaker Knockerz to Joey Bada$$ and Kurt Cobain. Kid Filthy is here to stay and the impact he is about to leave will be just shy of a meteoric crater.
