Kehlani | The Ritz | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Sat., July 15, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $23

It's rare for a runner-up on a TV talent show to keep rising after their run ends. Happily, that isn't the case for twenty-two-year-old Kehlani. The Oakland, California, native fronted a cover band called Poplyfe on America's Got Talent, which made it to fourth place in 2011, getting the attention of then-host Nick Cannon. She's released a pair of mixtapes, 2014's Cloud 19 and 2015's You Should Be Here, with the latter earning her a Grammy for best urban contemporary album. In January, she released SweetSexySavage, her debut studio album, via Atlantic Records, and the effort lives up to its name. "Distraction" is an aggressive, intoxicating come-on number, while Kehlani spends "In My Feelings" wrestling with romantic complications. It looks as though she's got a much bigger career ahead of her; she won't be playing smaller rooms like The Ritz for much longer. —Allison Hussey
