representing that 1st and 15th…
i scrambled to contact lupe fiasco’s publicist in time for last wednesday’s show. they blessed me with a ticket and photopass (and aftershow pass?!) and below are the images from the house of blues. i ran into steve osemwenkhae of mindlessphotos and we watched the show, adding comedic commentary when necessary. lots of laughs.
i’m a fan to sneaking out the door a few songs before the end (especially if i have to ride the train home), but the security dude said that the aftershow pass would allow us to meet lupe when the show was done. very good. i’m staying!
a.) B.O.B‘s set surprised me. he went from rapper dude to acoustic guitarist dude to electric guitarist dude to shirt-off-standing-in-the-crowd dude. it was like TI meets Wyclef meets John Mayer. i wasn’t expecting that. his song, BEAUTIFUL GIRLS is all over the radio. he’ll do great things.
b.) lupe fiasco‘s stage show made me tired! this dude can move! he was moving from stage left to right and back so fast. such energy. and his lyrics have depth. love it! he took the time out to appreciate the fans. brought a ton of them on stage for a full song and they all got to sing daydreamin’. hilarious. great show. don’t miss it.
