Concord Celebrates Nightmares on Wax 25th Anniversary Tour With N.O.W. Is The Time Tour
George Evelyn celebrates his 25th year as Nightmares on Wax with the N.O.W. Is The Time two disc release consisting of his greatest hits. The album coincides with his biggest US tour to date. Although he recently made a Chicago appearance at the Mid in March, we’re stoked to host his LIVE set here at Concord Music Hall on July 3rd! Tickets available here.
As Warp Records’ longest running artist, they will also be putting out a special edition box set called Deep Down: Remixes & Rarities which includes unreleased material, new and classic remixes, and a book of memorabilia and interviews.
Nightmares on Wax made a name for himself in the 80s UK B-Boy and graffiti scene and is credited as one of the innovators of trip-hop, an ambient blend of electronica and down-tempo hip hop. With classic albums such as Smoker’s Delight and Carboot Soul and working with the likes of De La Soul and Roots Manuva, NOW has established himself as a master of hip hop, funk, dub and soul.
