Speaking of artists with ambitious 2017 release schedules, Seattle hip-hop outfit Shabazz Palaces released two records this year via Sub Pop Records: Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and its “monozygotic twin” Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines. The group, comprised of Ishmael Butler (aka Butterfly of Digable Planets) and Tendai “Baba” Maraire, stopped by Union Transfer last Thursday night for a multimedia performance in support of the dual release.

They were joined by opener Porter Ray, another Seattle MC, and you can check out scenes from the evening care of photographer Koof Ibi Umoren.
