Chance The Rapper – Austin City Limits Festival 2017

It seems that Chance The Rapper’s career only seems to get better and better as time passes… Saturday Night Live has announced its lineup for the first weekends in November and with that we found out that Chance will be HOSTING their November 18 episode.

That date will be a Hip Hop affair, as Eminem will be performing as the musical guest… We can only hope that a live collab is in the works! We’ll definitely be tuning for this iconic-moment-in-the-making episode. Chance has been kind of a regular on SNL since debuting on the show in 2015, with the Chicago star previously aiding Kanye West to perform “Ultralight Beam” and having a couple of other appearances as the musical guest.

Prior to that episode, November 4 will see Larry David host as Miley Cyrus performs, and the super hilarious (also, bae) Tiffany Haddish will host the November 11 episode with Taylor Swift as the musical guest.

NE-HI Share Video for “Rattled and Strange,” Announce New 7″

posted by Oscar October 4, 2017

NE-HI have announced that they will be releasing a new 7″ featuring the songs “Rattled and Strange” and “Long Time.”

Along with that news, the Chicago band have shared the video for “Rattled and Strange.” Speaking on the Weird Life Films production, bassist James Weir said in a press release:

“When you’re on the road as much as we are, it’s crucial to have something to occupy your time in between gigs… As dive bar aficionados, the game of pool has become that activity. The ‘Rattled and Strange’ video is an homage to The Hustler sequel aka 1986 pool hall drama The Color of Money. The reason being that it’s about the combination of three of the Earth’s most revered treasures: the game of pool, Chicago, and Martin Scorsese.”

The 7″ is out November 3rd on Grand Jury, the same week they hit the road for US tour that will include headline dates and supporting slots for friends Whitney and Chad VanGaalen.

Check out the visual above. See below for the band’s upcoming tour dates.
