Tickets and event information
Dessa has been celebrated in the Twin Cities hip-hop and spoken word scene since she recorded False Hopes in 2005 and she is now known internationally for her work with the renowned Twin Cities’ music collective Doomtree, as well as spoken word, poetry and written essays such as Spiral Bound: A Short Collection by Dessa.
Her most recent release, the full-length Parts of Speech (June 2013, Doomtree) unites a wealth of tones and narratives. A Badly Broken Code was released in 2010 to critical acclaim and ranked #2 on the Twin Cities Critics Tally, as well as #20 on the A.V. Club’s Best Music of 2010. Castor, The Twin followed to similar acclaim. She was McNally Smith College’s 2010-11 Artist in Residence and continues to perform locally and nationally with Doomtree in various venues. A Piano In Every Home opens.
