Sultry-voiced Minneapolis-based rapper, producer, singer-songwriter, wordsmith, and member of the Doomtree label/collective Dessa (real name Margret Wander) has been pushing her classy, smart brand of alt hip-hop since dropping her False Hopes EP in 2005. She never does things straightforward (indicative of her Doomtree membership, although her output is probably the most accessible of them all), and her last collab was a 2019 spring presentation of her music accompanied by the Minnesota Orchestra, and released as a live double album, Sound the Bells: Recorded Live at Orchestra Hall, later that fall. On this Seattle date, she’ll be supporting that album backed by a live band (MONAKR) and a string quartet.
