For music in general, not just hip-hop
Arena hiphop just doesn’t work yall. I never wasted my money on a big arena concert, but I can’t imagine enjoying a rap show while sitting down and shit.
Festival-type shows can be all right (I saw Blackalicious, Roots, Mos & Talib, Luda & 50 at VoodooFest ‘03 in N.O. and that shit was tight), but live hiphop is best experienced in a sweaty-ass club with blunt smoke in the air.
KRS always puts on a live-ass show, as everybody knows. His energy is just crazy, and he seems to be on the road constantly. I’ve seen him four or five times, but the best was probably him and Channel Live, ‘06 at the Black Cat—just after they passed the DC smoking ban but you think we gave a fuck?
Also in ‘06, saw Brother Ali open for Rakim. I’d never heard of Ali before and dude impressed the fuck out of everybody. Coupla knives got pulled in the club that night.
Saw Immortal Technique and Diabolic back in ‘08, and then again with Akir and Swave Sevah last month. It’s satisfying to see Tech and them improving as performers. Definitely a much more polished stage show.
What are some memorable club shows you’ve been to?
