Scxtt Aye
This  Friday, June 11 Scxtt Aye will record a conversation with the [beatsnchill] podcast to detail his new album, Doves, but next Thursday, June 16, the Tampa rapper—whose painfully transparent lyrics play like pages of a journal over stripped back, dark beats—performs the record live and backed by a full band onstage for The Attic at Rock Brothers Brewing Co., which is easily the best listening room in Ybor City.

"I’d like to think as a human being and as an artist I always find myself being introspective. This album is personal for me and journals a lot of emotions and thought processes I’ve had in the last few years," Aye, born Scott Arana, told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. "Some of the sonics might differ from my previous releases but the elements are still the same. My goal at the end of the day for new and old listeners is to have them feel like they’ve gotten the chance to know more about Scott the man and can relate to my experiences."
Junkyrd—one of Creative Loafing Tampa Bay's 22 Rappers to Watch in '22—opens the show.
