How was the show?
185815, The Show was pretty good|

Medina Green opened...did his verse from crosstown beef then some of his new stuff. Overall he was mediocre and forgettable.
Jay was pretty good. Crowds for DC shows are usually pretty good but the crowd was definitely rocking with him and catching his punch lines. He's got a pretty good stage presence. Did the full version of "Dear Moleskine",dimethaltryptimine, My World, some freestyles, rapped the eternal sunshine joint over the price is right beat. Closed with Exhibit A.
Mos came out to supermagic and played the drums while he rapped it. Stuck to joints from his new album (casa bey, life in marvelous, twilight speedball, quiet dog). He was kind of charismatic but sarcastic thoughout the whole show. Kind of spazzed out at someone for shouting at him; talked about how sometimes you gotta get up and go to your job when you don't want to. Did "got" from the black on both sides album. Closed with Billie Jean.
Overall, it was a good show. 9:30 was packed and it was a pretty diverse crowd. I'd give it a B/B+

So, no 2hr wait for Mos to perform? That's good.
I'll have to catch the next one.

or just a kit set up on stage? Last time i saw him at 9:30 like 3 or 4 months ago we didn't get in the club until damn near Midnight. It was kinda ridiculous but still a good show. Kinda heated i missed it but De La tomorrow should more than make up for it.
185824, Naw just the kit|

Nah, he wasnt spazzin out. He said that same line at the Kennedy Center last year.
Good show, kinda surprise he didnt do Ms Fat Booty, but made up for doing Got. He played a little over a hour and a half, and having Chris Dave play the drums for a song was a nice touch. I dont think it sold out. I cant figure out how Mos/DeLa/RE havent sold out yet. I guess people stopped buying tickets ahead of time like they stopped buying albums.
