The 8th Annual Concerts in the Garden on Tuesday, July 8, with DESSA ,opening by June Panic and The Semaphores. Guests are invited to bring a lawn chair or a blanket and take a place in the Museum's sculpture garden.Gates open at 5:30.
Dessa is one part of the seven-member Minneapolis-based hip-hop collective Doomtree. Dessa's first full-length record, A Badly Broken Code, introduced her to a national audience as a rapper, a singer, and a potent, imaginative lyricist. It earned her a binder of superlative reviews from sources like NPR, The Seattle Times, and AM New York. From its first track, Dessa’s new full-length Parts of Speech announces itself as something different. The Doomtree veteran and inveterate wordsmith — having proved her mettle in the fields of creative non-fiction, spoken-word and hip-hop — jettisons all genre expectations on “The Man I Knew” and croons a heartbreaking lament to a disintegrating relationship at an explosively-building clip.
