Widely regarded for his infectious stage presence (even The Source is hip to his vibes), Niko Is sets the energy bar high for local hip-hop artists in terms of engaging a crowd (with or without Talib Kweli by his side). So it's always rad to see him get even more generous with his audience and perform free shows, whether that's dropping into an open mic at Reilly's Pub or posting up at Bullitt Bar like he's set to do tonight.
You can catch Niko Is at Bullitt Bar Thursday, Sept. 24 (tonight!) (we hear he goes on around midnight!) performing alongside Left Field Theory and Mehsi.
No cover and doors open at 9 p.m. Listen to Brutus now:
