There’s a red carpet, and 1920s dress code.

Two local MCs—Psych Montano and Albert J. (pictures above, left and right)—celebrate the release of their collaborative album Mansion Music with a prohibition-style party at the Vault in Downtown Tampa on Friday.

The dress code calls for fancy 1920s attire, and why wouldn’t you buy in? There’s a red carpet with paparazzi, masks provided on arrival plus a sold-out VIP section on the second floor complete with a private bar, food service, dessert bar and raffles.

You can get a sense of the killer hip-hop both musicians offer by finding Montano’s October ‘20 release Psych 101. I’ve got Albert J.’s head-nodding single “Problem” currently on repeat. Sheesh.

Mike Mass takes on the role of host with support from slam poet Dennis Amadeus, jazz trio Katara Trio, experimental hip hop-fusion band Bangarang, and Shevonne and The Force.

Psych Montano and Albert J. record release w/Mike Mass/Katara Trio/Bangarang/Shevonne and the Force. Friday, April 30, 8 p.m. $35 and up. The Vault, Tampa. eventbrite.com
