Ann Arbor venue veteran Brother Ali brings his “Home Away From Home” tour to A2, with guests BAMBU and DJ Last Word. Ali hails from Wisconsin, but grew up in Michigan. Over the last decade, he has established himself as an underground hip-hop household name, frequenting the Blind Pig over the course of his career. Ali’s activist agenda—he was arrested during the Occupy protests in 2012—and high-energy, purpose-driven performances come to life in small hometown venues.
