Icona Pop + K. Flay + Sirah
Event Info: (773) 549-4140 metrochicago.com
Creators of one of the songs of summer, Icona Pop face an interesting conundrum with "I Love It." The hit, heard blaring on a loop at a Six Flags near you (trust me), will likely do more to launch the career of it's guest vocalist, Charli XCX. Yet this Swedish duo are seemingly armed with more sweet candy jams of the same ilk. Duh, they're Swedish. Coincidentally, Charli is in town, playing Lincoln Hall the following night. Surprise appearance, anyone? Wilmette-born rapper K. Flay is one of our favorite budding talents, one of hip-hop's great female hopes. She's a real MC, not Kreayshawn, dissecting her mind in clever rhymes.
