No-No Boy (aka Julian Saporiti), Smithsonian Folkways breakout artist of 2021 is playing in Chicago on April 9th at The Hideout coming off the heels of his 2023 album, Empire Electric which No Depressions describes as “radiating a newfound compassion, celebrating that every life is an extension of the divine.”

No-No Boy is Saporiti’s music/history project that sprouted out of his PhD dissertation in Asian-American studies at Brown. Combining a sound and swag that is reminiscent of Jonathan Richman, John Lennon, and Lou Reed with true stories not heard in music or often told, in general (Japanese-American internment camps during WWII, Filipino cruise ship bands, and more).
