Chris Allen & Special Guests El Lambert, Strange and Woody Pond

Event Dates and Times

1/26/2017 - Starts: 7:00 PM
The Metropolitan Theater, 369 High Street, Morgantown, West Virginia 26505
Morgantown’s own Chris Allen (https://twitter.com/allenisland) will bring his brand of funk-infused hip-hop to the stage of the Metropolitan Theater. Allen and his band will perform a ninety minute set of original material that stretches beyond the traditional confines of rap to deliver a listening experience that is right at home on a theater stage as well as an intimate club.

Allen has honed his showmanship with countless local gigs over the past four years, two years of which alongside bassist Donnie Lee, drummer Mike Silver, and keyboardist Xavier Williams. The result is an energetic, textured sound Allen describes as “Neo-hip-hop…A go-go feel with a 90’s flow,” unrivaled in the area rap scene.

Allen has opened and shared the stage with the likes of Mick Jenkins, Fat Trel, Talib Kweli, and many more. Allen’s openers on the 26th will include Woody Pond, $trange, and El Lambert.

Regarding what he has in store for his show at the Metropolitan, Allen says, “This isn’t your average hip-hop, rapper and DJ show; all acts on this show, no matter the genre, have been asked to use live instrumentation. It’s my hope that I can bring a bit of D.C. to Morgantown, and provide a total experience for my guests.”

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the show set to begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door for $10.
