Maggie Rogers swinging by First Avenue, 10/29


Maggie Rogers is a producer, songwriter and performer from Easton, Maryland. After her education at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her breakout single “Alaska” and subsequent critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. “Alaska” has since charted in Spotify’s Viral 50 in 40 countries, hit #1 in 23 countries and now has over 100 million global combined streams to date. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications – including Rolling Stone, NYLON, SPIN, Billboard and more – have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, “Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.”

Supporting Maggie Rogers on this leg of her tour is Mallrat. “Hannah Montana of the rap game.” It’s the tongue-in-cheek moniker that Grace Shaw gave herself early in her career as Mallrat, the best description the then 16-year-old could ascribe the bright, bouncy pop she made inspired by the likes of her rap heroes Allday, Drake and Kanye. Smash cut to three years later and now when you say, “Mallrat,” you know exactly the vibe and sound we’re talking about. The 19-year-old is perfectly positioned to be Australia’s next big name in pop music and with the release of her second EP just around the corner via Dew Process and Nettwerk, stardom seems inevitable.

Tickets for Maggie Rogers and Mallrat are sold out. However – be sure to follow First Avenue on Twitter and watch the event page closely as additional tickets are sometimes released closer to the show.
