Hoodie Allen is coming to Vancouver this October.
Putting the pop in pop-rap Hoodie Allen had been an internet staple for years, but became a bonafide big name in 2010 off of the back of his breakout hit “You Are Not a Robot.”
Born Steven Markowitz and raised on Long Island, Hoodie is a frat-rap artist who is cut form the same cloth as the likes of Asher Roth and Sam Adams.
A headlining tour across the U.S. followed before Hoodie made his official debut with the All American EP in 2012. Released on his own label, the EP debuted at number ten on Billboard’s Top Albums, and was followed in 2013 by the acoustic EP Americoustic.
His debut album, People Keep Talking, arrived a year later, featuring the singles “Movie” and “Dumb for You” along with guest appearances from Ed Sheeran and Alex Wiley. It climbed to number eight on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and was followed by the EPs All American (2012) and Americoustic (2013).
The sophomore effort Happy Camper landed in 2016 and while it only climbed to number 28 on the Billboard 200, it did top the magazine’s rap chart.
Now he’s headed to Vancouver for an all ages show at the Vogue Theatre in support of his new album this October.
