He will perform songs from his critically-acclaimed new album “Eat Pray Thug.” Heems has been featured in The New York Times, The Village Voice, and NPR.

“Heems doubles down on the hallmarks of traditional New York underground rap: hard

beats, knotty rhymes and a political streak…with tons of incisive emotional insights on

growing up of South Asian descent in post-9/11 America.” —Rolling Stone

Tickets: $60 (advance), $50 (nonprofit/student), $65 (at door).

Purchase tickets online here.
