Nnamdi Ogbonnaya Headlines Pabst Milwaukee Brewery & Taproom Street Fest
May 19 show part of 1st anniversary event from noon to 7 p.m. on Juneau Ave
MILWAUKEE (May 7, 2018) – The Pabst Milwaukee Brewery & Taproom is tapping the talents of ascending rapper Nnamdi Ogbonnaya to headline its 1-year anniversary Pabst Street Festival on May 19. Ogbonnaya’s “let gO Of my egO” might just be the “catchiest song of 2017 you still haven’t heard,” according to Fader.
“Nnamdi is a rising star in the Chicago music scene,” says Pabst Milwaukee Brewery and Taproom General Manager Adam Powers. “When Nnamdi’s on stage, his story, his lyrics, his style grab hold of you. He’s the perfect Pabst Street Festival headliner to build on the success of last year’s event.”
The Pabst Street Festival will run from noon to 7 p.m. on Juneau Avenue between between 10th and 11th streets. A limited-edition craft beer will also be released at the street festival to commemorate the 1-year anniversary of Pabst’s return to Milwaukee. Beginning at 9 p.m., The Get Down afterparty will take place inside the Pabst Milwaukee Brewery and Taproom. This popular Milwaukee funk and soul dance party will keep the celebration going inside the 145-year-old church-turned-brewery space.
Additional event information can be found on the Pabst Milwaukee Brewery and Taproom Facebook event page. Beer patrons must be at least 21 years old.
