Oddisee Album Release Party

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Oddisee has grown immensely since emerging from Washington’s underground hip-hop scene a decade ago. He has become highly prolific, touring the world repeatedly and, and most importantly, pushing his sound in increasingly ambitious directions. He has licensed his music to ESPN, worked with Jazzy Jeff and Talib Kweli and been featured in Spin. At the same time, he still faces assumptions because of his independent career and refusal to bend to trends — hence the title of his new album, “People Hear What They See.” Ever the road warrior, he’ll earn a raft of new stamps in his passport later this year while supporting his most recent effort. But first, he’ll perform at Montserrat House, both to celebrate the album’s release in the city that launched him and to test drive the band that will take it on the road. The show is free and DJ Jerome Baker III provides party rocking support.
