Los Angeles hip hop star Kid Ink (pictured) will perform at a 7 p.m. show at Wooly's in Des Moines tomorrow night. The 28-year old rapper (born Brian Todd Collins) released his second full-length album, entitled My Own Lane, in January.

So far, the album has produced two hit singles, "Main Chick" and the platinum-selling smash "Show Me", both of which feature Chris Brown. Tickets to the show are $22 in advance and $25 the day of the show. [Update: this concert is now sold out.] B. Well and Rob Sheppard will open this all ages show.
