Grayskul featuring Onry Ozzborn and JFK

Nov. 4
Grayskul featuring Onry Ozzborn and JFK
House of Loom, 1012 S. 10th St.,
8 p.m., Tickets are $5, houseofloom.com

Hailing from Seattle, Washington, Grayskul has been turning out indie hip-hop for the past decade. Comprised of Onry Ozzborn and JFK, formerly of the hip-hop collective Oldominion, Grayskul teamed up with bassist Rob Castro to complete the lineup. The group released its Rhymesayers debut, Deadlivers, in 2005, which received mostly favorable reviews. Now signed to Connecticut’s small indie label, Fake Four Inc., Grayskul is in the middle of touring in support of its latest effort, Zenith. Zenith abandons the darkness of their previous material in favor of a wide-range of sounds indirect enough to maintain the group’s originality, but also allowing for momentary excursions into popular rap and electronic music styles of the moment. Production credits start with indie favorite Aesop Rock and tread further underground with names like Smoke, Void Pedal and Moodie Black. With Zenith, Grayskul has done its part in keeping Seattle hip- hop off-kilter and erratic. Grayskul makes a once in a blue moon appearance at the House of Loom on Monday.
