Club Hertz Live with Linqua Franqa
Sunday December 19, 2021 07:30 PM EST
From the venue:Linqua Franqa is the hip hop darkside of Athens-based linguist-turned-legislator Mariah Parker, whose scientific fixation with language is obvious in the intricate, self-aware rhymes she weaves into boom bap tapestries. Her lyrics, garnished with haunting neo-soul hooks, tell complex and unflinching tales of existential heartbreak, racial strain, and feminist swagger. Longtime hip hop heads will hear echoes of nineties New York underground in both her playful vocal delivery and jazz-kissed beat production. In the wake of a critically acclaimed first album and narrowly-clinched election to the Athens city council, Parker has garnered the attention of CNN, The New York Times, Teen Vogue, National Public Radio, Al Jazeera, The Nation, Afropunk, The Root, The Bitter Southerner, and others for her outspoken commitments to social justice and her electrifying live performances.
