Pax Vobiscum, pilgrims!
So, according to the calendar, it’s been over a year since I posted anything up. A whole year! Wow, how about that!
To be honest, I have been busy: what with breathing, and eating and all that lovely work that goes into existing. That and being prioritising stuff. But hey: live’s too short not to blog!
So now that I’m back I’ll start off with a gig I attended a couple of nights ago at the Indigo2 that played host to a house-favourite, Musiq Soulchild:
with performances from The Floacist, Natalie Stewart:
I must say, she does look good in black:
and Raheem Bakare (top dollar, I bet he’s Nigerian, even before I google the information!) a young soul singer whom I’d never heard of until yesterday, but I’m sure he’ll go far:
I have to admit that I was very surprised to see that the gig was a seated event, and I kept thinking to myself, “Sheesh! We can’t be that old! But I know my people: the moment the show starts, people will rise up and dance!”
Boy, was I sorely mistaken!
Last year, same venue, Belinda Carlise performed to a seated audience. Or so she thought. The moment she came on stage, everyone stood up and danced and sang along.
But not my people yesterday. To be honest, they were quite reserved, all things considering. But hey! Who am I to judge!
Musically, it was a great gig, the whole 10 minutes that I stayed for the show. Visually, though, I wasn’t wowed by the performance, but that’s just me.
