Bay area indie rapper K. Flay makes Minnesota feel like home with her third Minneapolis show in six months

San Francisco based indie hip-hop artist K. Flay ignited the legendary First Avenue on a stormy night in Minneapolis, playing a full range of songs from her catalog to a welcoming Minnesota crowd. K. Flay’s return to Minneapolis, the third stop in the city within the last six months, felt like more like a hometown show despite being hundreds of miles from California, only this time playing the largest club venue as a headlining act. Fresh off of the release of her second full length “Everywhere is Somewhere,” which dropped on April 7th, K. Flay debuted a handful of songs off of the record to the eager Minneapolis crowd.

Electronic duo Missio, the only support act of the night, set the tone for the rest of the evening, playing songs off of their debut record “Loner,” which was released on May 19th. The Austin based band, composed of Matthew Brue and David Butler, energized the crowd with their charismatic stage presence, leaving the crowd satisfied and excited for K. Flay’s set.

The crowd gave a very warm welcome to K. Flay as soon as the lights dimmed, anticipating a thrilling set, which K. Flay easily delivered. Playing a mix of songs, including “The President Has a Sex Tape,” “High Enough,” “Black Wave,” “Blood in the Cut,” and “Wishing it Was You,” K. Flay’s eclectic blend of intricate instruments and powerful, confessional lyrics lit up First Avenue, leaving Minneapolis in anticipation for K. Flay’s return to the Twin Cities.
