In a recent review of her performance in the Washington DC area by the Washington Post, Rico Nasty's show was described by reviewer Chris Kelly this way, "It’s apparent that no one tells Rico Nasty what to do. In a hip-hop world defined by braggadocio, the 21-year-old rapper born Maria Kelly wins superlatives for Most Swagger and Most Casually Charismatic. Her outsize personality, unique style and punk spirit have helped her blast off from SoundCloud rapper to major- label star-in-the-making in less than two years.
Rico Nasty has always had a rough persona back when she was just learning the world at a young age, Kelly's mother sent her to a boarding school in Baltimore, MD. Kelly was eventually expelled from the boarding school, after being caught smoking marijuana on school grounds. What street cred the rapper has right.
In June, last year, Rico Nasty released her single Poppin' which became her biggest single to date gathering over 4 million views on and being featured on the HBO hit show Insecure. The song was then featured on her 5th mixtape Sugar Trap 2 which included Rico’s other popular hit Key Lime OG. The mixtape was later listed on Rolling Stone's best Rap Albums of 2017.

A few weeks in Oakland CA., Jeff Lynne began his first Electric Light Orchestra tour of North America in 37 years at the Oracle Arena. The last time he played in the U.S. with ELO was in support of 1981's Time, reports Ultimate Classic Rock.com.
In 1981, Lynne took the band in a somewhat different direction with the science-fiction themed album Time, reaching number one for two weeks in the UK, producing the second Top 3 single in less than two years. The strings were still featured, but with heavily synthesised textures.
It was in 2014, Lynne reformed ELO and resumed concert touring, the same year he received a star on the Birmingham Walk of Stars in his home city. In 2015, he was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2017, Lynne was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of ELO.
Lynne and ELO will be at Toyota Center tonight at 8:00PM
