Oddisee “People See What They Hear” Tour @ Public Assembly
Tickets Available at Ticketweb
DC native Oddisee is back on the scene with his “debut” album, People See What They Hear. And although Oddisee has been a staple of the DC hip-hop scene for nearly a decade, and is the frontman of the DMV-flag waving supergroup, Diamond District, this is Oddisee’s first solo offering. And boy does the guy know that you have to make your debut album count! People See What They Hear is a stellar, criminally slept-on project, with thoughtful lyrics, clever rhyme schemes and Oddisee’s signature soulful boom-bap production, that all hip-hop heads should have in their “Best of 2012” list.
Tanya Morgan, Move Forward favorites since their 2009 underground classic, Brooklynati, will be performing their first proper NYC show in quite some time, and up-and-comers Mr. MaG, Doppelgangaz and Gotham Green join to light up the stage as well. A big shout out to Rare Form’s DJ Tara who will hold down the decks, and Dee Phunk, who will be your host for the evening. Advance tickets are only $10!
