Following 2011 events in Austin, Texas; Berlin, Germany; Beijing, China; London, UK and Paris, France, Baltimore’s premier dance-rap spitfire Rye Rye will round out the first year of Dell and Intel’s once-in-a-lifetime Special Engagement events. Rye Rye will take the stage at the Seattle Art Museum for a performance that will be streamed live around the world on Noisey.com.
21-year-old Rye Rye is no stranger to the limelight; she was the first artist signed to M.I.A’s label N.E.E.T. Records and her past collaborators include M.I.A., Diplo and DJ Blaqstarr. More recently she teamed with Scandinavian dance queen Robyn for summer’s smash, “Never Will Be Mine” and Far East Movement for “Jello”.

The Special Engagements series has taken great acts from all over the world and put them in unique locations for a handful of truly special shows. Following performances in a historic house in Texas, The Museum For Communication in Berlin, a retro bowling alley in London and the Eiffel Tower in Paris, this next Special Engagement will take over the Seattle Art Museum for a one-off event to be streamed live. An edited long-form documentary of the sixth Engagement will air on Noisey.com following the event.
