KCRW’s Private Playlist: The Koreatown Oddity

KCRW’s Private Playlist is a listening session with Southern California’s most notable musical figures in their private creative environments. A native Angeleno, The Koreatown Oddity (Dominique Purdy) was born and raised in his namesake. As a teenager, Purdy plied his craft on the Sunset Strip, performing stand-up sets at the Laugh Factory. He made his feature film debut in 2006 in “The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down” before issuing his debut mixtape, “Eat A Dead Goat,” in 2012. Over the last decade, his discography has swelled to include seven studio albums and an additional 11 mixtapes, largely issued on cassette. He issued his debut album for Stones Throw, “Finna Be Past Tense,” in 2017.
