FAT FREDDY’S DROP – THE RAFT

22 11 2009

Woo! My partner took me to go see Fat Freddy’s Drop live this past Thursday and these cats can get down!!! Although it was annoying having to wait for the opener to finish their set and get off stage amidst a bunch of weirdo white people who kept hollering, screaming, and prancing around like pogo sticks for no reason, it was worth the wait. The only other thing that annoyed the ish outta me was this obnoxious woman behind me that kept humming, or I should say, making noise as if she was the horn section. Shut up and let the band play!!! Anyways here’s one of my fav tracks of the night in its pristine clarity.

My favorite part: “Though my people may not be many, we are ready for the storm to come…”

Not to bombard you with the plethora of MJ posts thats been out there in the blogosphere and beyond but this is a good one. “Q” talks about making “Off the Wall” and “Thriller“-the biggest selling album in the world and one of the best music videos you will ever see!

…while you’re here, check out the Thriller video…and its not even a video, its more like a short film. Still creeps me out more than any “scary” movie Hollywood could ever come out with!
