Dessa, MONAKR at (le) poisson rouge 7:00pm doors | 8:00pm show | 18+ $20 advance | $25 day of show Singer, rapper, and songwriter Dessa has made a career of bucking genres and defying expectations. The albums she's released with Doomtree Records include rap bangers, a cappella arrangements, and big, catchy pop hooks. She's co-composed for a 100-voice choir; contributed a track to Lin-Manuel Miranda's The Hamilton Mixtape; and recorded a cover "Balance" by Mountain Goats (Merge Records) that plays like a Bond theme. She performs in equally varied venues; she tours gritty rock clubs, velvet-lined theaters, and top-tier festivals like Glastonbury and Lollapalooza, but also takes special pleasure in dreaming up themed events for intimate rooms-such as her recent curation of a sold-out residency series at WYNC's The Greene Space, in which Dessa matched lyricists with researchers who tackled scientific subject matter on stage. The LA Times says she "sounds like no one else;" NPR says she's "breaking the rules of rap;" The Chicago Tribune simply calls her "enchanting." Dessa maneuvers through rooms and styles, working highbrow and low, with a commanding stage presence that attracts dedicated listeners at every stop. Chicago-based MONAKR formed in 2014 as a collaboration between former members of indie pop band Hey Champ (Saam Hagshenas and Jonathan Marks) and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Matthew Santos. Largely inspired by the Peter Gabriel flavored electro-pop-rock of the '80s, MONAKR's music couples with dark R&B and the moody trip-hop of the late '90s.
