Take equal parts Digable Planets and Erykah Badu, add a dash of Jill Scott and you’ll get a taste for TheeSatisfaction. The Sub Pop signees, write, produce and perform their own material described by the label as “funk-psychedelic feminista sci-fi epics with the warmth and depth of Black Jazz and Sunday morning soul, frosted with icy raps that evoke equal parts Elaine Brown, Ursula Ruck and Q-Tip.” Hopefully, one of these two descriptions will convey that this duo is an act you shouldn’t miss.
Los Angeles folks can catch them tonight at The Echo by winning a pair of tickets on our app. Download our app to enter. Then, Friday San Francisco folks can catch them at The Independent.
Listen to TheeSatisfaction “Pause” and “Do You Have Time” from their KEXP performance.
