Hey Seattle. One of the fastest rising global music stars is headed to town this upcoming Saturday night and performing at the Showbox Sodo. It’s not our favorite venue in town either (we here you) but damn if K’naan isn’t one of the few performers out there that makes hitting up Showbox Sodo totally worth it.
From everything I can gather, K’naan’s literally traveled around the world and back since the last time he performed in Seattle at the Moore Theater on ’09 with Matisyahu. You might have seen him at the World Cup performing like a megastar or on Jimmy Kimmel Live two nights ago. He’s a good representative for a world music star should be: he’s not just doing hip-hop or singing or rock or whatever but rather he’s found his own genre that resonates with music fans around the globe. Just like you always knew that he would.
Here’s the best news of the day regarding K’naan: we’ve got free tickets to give away to a couple of lucky readers here on the blog. Here’s what you need to do: drop a line in the comments or hit us up on Twitter saying that you’d like a pair of tickets (some way to get a hold of you is helpful) and we will pick the winners in the next 24 hours. Winners will be decided semi-randomly, but trying to win always helps! Okay Seattle? We’re about to hook you up with free tickets, so let us know you want some K’naan in your life!
Check out footage of K’naan on Jimmy Kimmel performing “Fatima” below the jump.
