Cincinnati transplants Tanya Morgan trio is bringing Brooklynati back to East Coast after performing in their home state of Ohio. They will grace the DC 9 stage on Sunday, July 25, 2010 accompanied by another group from the Buckeye State, The Kickdrums.
This marks Tanya Morgan’s first tour after releasing several projects throughout the spring. The group’s critically lauded sophomore album,
2009’s Brooklynati earned the crew comparisons with hip hop legends. As eMusic puts it, “Brooklynati captures it exactly right here, with
breezy, jazzy tracks that have the sense of discovery that accompanied De La, A Tribe Called Quest, and the Jungle Brothers at their most
freewheeling.” The talented trio has been getting a lot of attention from industry vets as well, receiving public nods of approval from the
likes of Questlove and Talib Kweli. Steve Smith, Time Out New York’s music editor, rated the album #1 across all genres for 2009 and said,
” This Brooklyn-Cincinnati hip-hop trio summoned old-school cheer, goofy skits and indelible hooks for a left-field masterpiece.”
With such talent, there is no doubt that this show is sure to satisfy fans eager to catch the trio live and to keep music head’s tongues wagging with approval.
The show is July 25, 2010 @ DC9 Washington, D.C. Doors: 10:30pm/Show: 11pm Tickets: 17+ $10 in advance/ $12 at the door.
