Minneapolis hip hoppers Atmosphere return to The Wilma on Sunday, February 16th. May make a fun Valentine's date? Openers are The Lioness, Nikki Jean and DJ Keezy. Tickets are $30 in advance, $33 at the door. Get yours at the Top Hat, Rockin' Rudy's and online.

Starting at 1997’s Overcast, the group’s first official album, and traveling through 18 years of new albums, side projects (e.g. the Sad Clown series and Felt), and various collaborations, all the way up until 2018’s Mi Vida Local album, Atmosphere’s unique brand of hip hop has evolved in a way that differs from many of their peers and predecessors.

Their discography evolves in a natural way, not succumbing to the pressure people tend to place on artists to maintain the same sound from album to album. Their continued rigorous touring and performance schedule have been the vessel for ingraining their stories and the legacy of the music into their fan base. Their passion and creative spark are as illuminate as ever. The Minneapolis-based duo still have plenty of stories to tell.
