Live Video: P.O.S., Dessa, Astronautalis, F. Stokes

As F. Stokes took the stage at Friday’s sold-out show at the High Noon he made sure that crowd knew “hip-hop is alive and well in Madison.”  I don’t think the crowd needed much convincing.  Before the start time of 10pm all of the tickets had been bought up, and people had to be turned away in droves.

Dessa Chats With The A.V. Club

Dessa

“With the release of Dessa‘s A Badly Broken Code, all of the five MCs in the talent-rich Twin Cities rap collective Doomtree finally have solo albums under their belts.

Women MCs, A Letter From Dessa: Politics, Pleasure, And Art

Two of our talented female New Years headliners: Kid Sister and Dessa, are skilled in spinning, writing, and rhyming.  Unfortunately for the masses, the hip hop and electronic music industries tend to be male playgrounds.  We’re proud to host these self-defined artists, and hope you will support them as well.  In response to an internal conversation about this party, Dessa wrote the following letter to our readers to share a bit about her experience as a female MC .
