K. Flay to Perform Live at the MLB Fan Cave

We are pleased to announce the first-ever live music performance at the MLB Fan Cave. On Tuesday, rapper K. Flay, one of the most compelling new voices in hip hop, will perform an hour-long set, beginning at 1:00PM, in front of a live audience at the Cave.

Readers in the New York City area are encouraged to come down to 692 Broadway to take in the performance live. We are excited to present visitors with the opportunity to see Flay perform in an intimate and unique venue for live music, but please note that space is limited.

For more details on the event, please be sure to follow @mlbfancave and @kflay on Twitter.

About K. Flay: Kristine Flaherty grew up outside of Chicago, devouring her father's classic rock records and staying up late to dance to Parliament-Funkadelic in the living room. It was this same musical open-mindedness that would later spark her artistic development. She found her musical voice in college, fusing the eclectic power of the Bay Area hip hop scene with her own unique presence, inspired by strong, independent female artists ranging from Missy Elliott and Lauryn Hill to Fiona Apple and Liz Phair.

On stage, K. Flay is a one-woman whirlwind: whether she’s creating beats, singing, rapping and playing guitar, her wit and acerbic charm shine through. Her talents have led her to share the stage with artists including spending 2010 on the road with Passion Pit (Campus Consciousness Tour), 3oh!3 (Streets of Gold Tour), and various dates with Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Travie McCoy and more, where she quickly won over audiences who hadn’t seen anything quite like her before. Further setting her apart from the pack, she serves as her own producer in the studio, methodically infusing her hip hop swagger with a dose of sonic exploration.K. Flay’s debut self-released EP dropped on October 12, 2010 and has been receiving rave reviews nationwide.

The EP which is currently available on iTunes, along with one mixtape (the genre-hopping "MASHed Potatoes") available for free on her website, have set K.Flay up nicely for a successful 2011.
