Hip Hop artist, poet, and book club runner Noname will be making a stop at Majestic Theatre for a Nov. 21 performance on her Sundial Tour after last being in Madison for her Room 25 Tour back in 2019. Tickets are still available for the all-ages show that begins at 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m.
Noname’s latest album, “Sundial,” covers many topics the Chicago MC is known to be a passionate voice on from pondering the role of capitalism in regards to mutual support in communities on “hold me down,” to calling out personal commitment to principle when it comes to fame and entertainment on “namesake,” and even touching on the aftermath of infidelity and patriarchal entitlement on “toxic.”
“Sundial” is Noname’s third album after her breakout album/mixtape Telefone in 2016 after a handful of features on fellow Chicago rapper’s albums, which was then followed up with “Room 25” in 2018. Taking a short step away from focusing on another album, Noname started Noname Book Club in 2019, highlighting bookstores run or owned by people of color, sharing often undermined or ignored literature, and providing access to that same literature for imprisoned people.
The Sundial Tour kicked off last month and is going strong into mid-November before going overseas next year. Noname has been active doing interviews with publications such as Pitchfork and Complex in support of the album and tour, and even came through NPR for a Tiny Desk Concert just last week.
Next Wednesday will surely be an early treat for the upcoming holidays for Hip Hop fans as Noname graces the Majestic Theatre stage.
