NIKI concert review: A nostalgic Friday night party with ‘NICOLE’

  • Indonesian singer-songwriter NIKI is currently on her first-ever solo North American tour, which will conclude in Los Angeles on Oct. 22.
  • The 88rising artist stopped at the Showbox in Seattle on Sep. 9.
  • Her tour shares its name with her newly released sophomore album “NICOLE.”

To that end, it would be easy to chalk up the Seattle stop of her “NICOLE” tour as yet another standard performance. However, the 23-year-old vocalist hosted something akin to a stripped back Friday night party with her bandmates and hundreds of friends she has never met.
