Tonight was hands down, one of the most energetic, artistic, musical performances I have seen in years. The show was Janelle Monae and the venue was the very intimate Schubas Tavern in Chicago. The multi-media show began with Monae and her band entering the stage in black hooded cloaks as a futuristic video was projected onto the wall of the sold out venue. As soon as the video stopped the music started, and didn't stop for about a solid hour. Monae is a performer to the likes of James Brown or Prince, she controls the crowd with her infectious dance moves and amazing voice. I haven't been this impressed by a new artist in a long time, so catch this chick in an intimate venue before its too late. That means you my Detroit people she's at St Andrews Hall Friday night.
