Update: Lizzo has canceled her Bumbershoot appearance due to a severe sinus infection.
Minneapolis rapper, singer, and flautist Lizzo has blown the fuck up over the past year from a mix of hyped-up performances, viral videos, and a fantastic major-label debut. That album, Cuz I Love You, navigates between pop, R&B, funk, hip-hop, and rock with ease. Her headlining set at Capitol Hill Block Party in July drew so many people to Pike Street that The Stranger had to watch from the gas station behind the stage. People were pressed together like sardines, many of them sobbing and carrying on like they were seeing the Beatles. It was a mess. Her Bumbershoot gig was announced the next day, so we presume her set at the roomy Memorial Stadium will make up for the CHBP clusterfuck.
