Just in case you needed one more reason to get pumped for the Lupe Fiasco concert on Friday, Jan. 20th, the University of Wyoming has announced that hip-hopper Molina will be the opening act. While the show is sold out, a limited number of tickets will be released for sale the night of the show.

A waiting list for tickets will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the box office window in the A & S auditorium lobby on Friday night with the concert beginning at 8 p.m.

Molina came into the independent music scene in 2007, inspiring people with his household brand of spoken work poetry. Speaking and acting on social issues, he works with youth of all ages and social demographics. His lyrical releases span the genres of hip-hop, neo-soul, jazz, spoken word and experimental music.

Earlier in the week, Molina held a hip-hop workshop and performance at the University of Wyoming, ‘Build 2020 with Molina Speaks‘.

The concert is sponsored by UW Concerts and Convocations and is part of Martin Luther King Jr./Days of Dialogue activities. For more information, call the Fine Arts box office at (307)766-6666.
