Janelle Monae, ArtsCenter

Saturday’s Obama For America Rally offered a unique opportunity to see Janelle Monae perform in a 400-ish person room. Her next non-festival show is a 3000+ person room.

So it was completely striking and amazing to get the opportunity to see that huge of a show in such a small space.

A completely stunning live show. Not only was it really fun for the audience to see her in such a small space, it also seemed as if she and her band really enjoy playing to the room.

To end the show, she commanded us to all sit/kneel to the music. And the whole room was in the palm of her hand, so kneel and then rise we did.

Amazing performer, great show.
