Mykki Blanco Joins Death Grips' North American Tour

Mykki Blanco Joins Death Grips' North American Tour
Earlier this month, we learned that experimental aggro-rap trio Death Grips were heading out on the road to play across North America this fall, and it looks as if the shows will get an extra shot of intensity with news that conceptual gender-bending spitter Mykki Blanco has been added to select dates.

Blanco (aka Michael D. Quattlebaum) explained via Twitter this morning (October 22) that he'll hook up with the outfit for a number of tour dates. "I am happy to announce I will be going on my first U.S Tour opening for the band Death Grips," he wrote. "I'll be on tour Nov 12-23, east coast, canada and midwest dates." Canuck fans can check Blanco out at Toronto's Wrongbar on November 18.

Considering Death Grips' current itinerary doesn't exactly fit with Blanco's projected timeline (there isn't a November 12 date, for instance), it's possible more dates will be added to the trip. Blanco himself hasn't unveiled his schedule beyond the tweets. What's seems to be certain, unfortunately, is that Blanco won't be tagging along on the West Coast, including that November 30 stop at Vancouver's Fortune Sound Club. You can check out both acts' North American schedules as we know them down below.
