Skylar Grey has worked with plenty of rap/hip-hop’s top dogs since 2010. In fact, they should be thanking her for helping write some of their biggest hits. Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie”? Grey. Dr. Dre’s “I Need A Doctor”? Grey. Diddy and Dirty Money’s “Coming Home”? Yet again, Grey. Hard to believe this singer/songwriter started out as Holly Brook Hafermann in small town Wisconsin. We don’t blame her for the name change; Skylar Grey is one you won’t forget.
She’s undoubtedly talented (that voice!), and now she’s on tour to promote her debut major label studio album, “Don’t Look Down.” Show starts at 11 p.m., so get there early and grab some wings. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. 21+. -HS
