There’s always something special about a show in your home state — especially when you have family and friends in attendance. Pop singer Ashnikko, who was born in the Greensboro area, hit The Fillmore on Tuesday night for a sold-out concert. Fans flaunted their favorite rave fits as the venue felt more like a dance club than a concert at times.

The blue-haired pop singer gained popularity on TikTok, but has clearly forged her own path in the music world. Blending elements of pop, hip-hop and rock, Ashnikko is a ball of energy onstage, constantly dancing around the sparse space with two backup dancers by her side. It’s no surprise that her catchy songs have gone viral via social media.

The night started with rapper/singer Audrey Nuna, whose 30-minute set was shot out of a cannon with the song “IDGAF” and its repeated “I don’t give a fuck” refrain. While Nuna slowed things down to show off her vocal range with some R&B, the focus of her performance was firmly seated in hip-hop.
