Kent Odessa
Kent Odessa
Kent Odessa is a singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist originally from Detroit, Michigan, now residing in Brooklyn, New York. Mainly influenced by 70's and 80's funk and r & b, Odessa's legendary live shows are a hypnotic blend of synchronized dancing, stadium-rock antics, and soulful balladry. A former Kitsune alum, his new EP "The Divorce Rate" comes out via Hidalgo Records on December 5th
Johnny Butler & the Epic Fail
Johnny Butler & the Epic Fail
Johnny Butler is an enigmatic saxophonist, composer, producer, technologist and Grammy-Award Winning recording artist for his work with Beyonce. Over the last three months, he released an album on London's Hi4Head Records, toured nationally, premiered a film in the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, and garnered international praise in UK's The Wire, Jazzwise, and others. With the help of his full band, The Epic Fail, Butler's live shows have been a showcase of beautiful electronic music and brilliant improvisation. Groove-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Johnny Butler’s music is a bridge between the past and the present, bringing the artist face-to-face with a creative legacy that spans decades, equally influenced by Intelligent Dance Music and boom-bap hip-hop as Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

For this show only, The Epic Fail will be joined by dance company AnA Collaborations and Loner the Clown.
