Dessa premieres new live video, 'Sadie Hawkins,' via MN Original


Rapper, writer, poet, and songwriter Dessa has been on a constant climb of late, garnering loads of press last year for her solo debut, A Badly Broken Code, completing a successful tour and trip to SXSW with her crew, Doomtree, and launching her first headlining tour of the US this spring with Sims and Lazerbeak.

[jump] In honor of all of this ass-kicking, tpt's MN Original is dedicating a full hour of programming to exploring Dessa's craft -- the first time in the show's history that they've aired a full hour-long program on one local artist.

As a preview for this weekend's episode, "Dessa: A Minnesota Original Music Special," MN Original and Gimme Noise are partnering to debut a video of the fierce songsmith performing "Sadie Hawkins" live at the Cedar, which you can check out below.

Tune in this Sunday, March 27 at 10 p.m. on tpt-2 and online at to catch the full broadcast.
