PERFORMER: 

SEABERG

Seaberg is a hip-hop, alt-jazz, and neo-soul band featuring multi-instrumentalist Taylor Seaberg, Justin Halverson (bass), and Carlos Kelley (drums). Often soulful and punk driven, the group carries a vibrant energy. Under their former name of "People Will Dance," Seaberg's in-studio performance of their song "Vibes" was featured in City Pages' Local Frames and the Local Current blog's Friday Five music video roundups. Seaberg has also performed at an MPR sponsored album release show for Chastity Brown's Silhouette of Sirensat The Fitzgerald Theater.

SPECIAL GUESTS: 

GUANTE

Guante is a hip hop artist, two-time National Poetry Slam champion, social justice activist, educator and writer. His work, which explores the places where progressive politics, magical realism, working-class identity and the power of perspective intertwine, has been featured in URB Magazine’s “Next 1000” list, City Pages’ “Artists of the Year” list, CMJ, Feministing and the Progressive, and he's shared bills with Talib Kweli, Atmosphere, Andrea Gibson, Dead Prez, Sage Francis, Brother Ali, Mr. Lif, P.O.S., Zion I and many more.

NAZEEM & SPENCER JOLES

Nazeem Cunningham met Spencer Joles in middle school, and neither expected to be making music together almost a decade later. “I kind of just went up to him and started freestyling, but we wouldn’t ever freestyle about anything or have it rhyme. It would just be ridiculous,” Joles said. By the time the collaborators, now both 20, made it to Southwest High School, they began writing music seriously, and the two have been close collaborators ever since. “Sometime in high school we realized we could actually kind of make music,” Cunningham said.
