We're still buzzing from Dessa's magnetic and stirring performance at the Best of the Twin Cities Bash at the Varsity Theater, and are excited to show you the footage that MPLS.TV shot of Saturday night's performances by Dessa and openers No Bird Sing. But before we release the video -- which comes out tomorrow -- we wanted to give you a little teaser.

Here's an audio clip of one of the most mesmerizing and moving parts of her set, when she came out alone for an a capella rendition of Freedy Johnston's "Bad Reputation" mixed with Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."

Dessa, "Hallelujah" (solo a capella)

Check back tomorrow for a full video recap, including footage from Dessa and No Bird Sing's performances and an interview backstage with the performers.
