Hip hop collaborator Oddisee is set to step out with his Good Compny band to tour new material on the cusp of spring. Labelled Beneath The Surface, the tour includes Manchester’s Gorilla and follows a storming show at Deaf Institute in September, 2015. Based in Washington, DC, Oddisee has a sizeable repertoire of mixtapes under his name and fuses his words of wisdom with Good Compny’s soulful backing and smooth instrumental flows to great effect. His most recent recorded output, March 2016’s Alwasta EP, once again showcased his conscious take on hip hop, setting the stage for a big 2017.

Wed 8 Mar, Gorilla, 54-56 Whitworth Street, Manchester, M1 5WW. Tel: 0161 407 0301, 7.30pm, £14, www.thisisgorilla.com
