Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

On her latest album, Room 25, Fatimah Warner (better known as Noname) establishes herself as one of contemporary's hip-hop's most skilled lyricists, deftly exploring a transitional period in her life through a stream of poetic stanzas. The Bronzeville native mixes bravado with deeply personal reflection, often packing both sentiments into the span of a few seconds of her jazz-inflected arrangements. After spending much of the year on the road, Noname returns to Chicago for a trio of year-end shows at Thalia Hall, including a New Year's Eve performance.
