TONIGHT: Jay Critch at Higher Ground


Being an “online superstar” used to be a joke, an insult. That was back before the entire American Universe existed online, all day, every day. Jay Critch was born at the right time, in other words — his success on Youtube and Soundcloud has translated into tours, more connections, bigger opportunities. Like “getting signed to Interscope,” for instance.

Jay Critch has clearly got a following here in the 802, considering Higher Ground moved this gig from the showcase lounge to the ballroom. DJ SVPPLY was also added to the ticket, along with King Lah, Cloud 3, Beny Bermuda.

9 pm show. ALL AGES. $35 at the door. It’s going to be a crazy night.
