This Saturday, February 29 marks the return of Sounds from Elsewhere, a quarterly showcase shining a light on the alternative hip-hop and R&B artists emerging from the soil. Hosted and curated by Just Rese, the lineup is as varied and diverse as the region they’re representing: Siri Seiko, an astrological artist; Trey Coastal, an eclectic trio of Oakland MCs and Text Me Records’ charismatic rap wizard Wade08 highlight a bill designed as a who’s who of the next generation. Per Just Rese:
The goal of each show is to introduce audiences to their new favorite local acts. There are a ton of new and different sounds coming out of the Bay Area, Oakland specifically. Sounds from Elsewhere aims to be a source for discovering those new, innovative and experimental sounds.
