Local Listen: Second Hand King

a2352615035_10.jpg

  Joe Stanziola, the Kansas City man behind Second Hand King, doesn’t make run-of-the-mill hip-hop. Elements of doo-wop and an unusually sentimental perspective of love inform his thoughtful music. “The Right Way,” a track from Second Hand King’s new album “Before the Bomb Drops,” is inspired by vintage R&B.

Second Hand King performs on the patio of the Riot Room at 8 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 12.
