I’m up in Chicago right now and I attended Estelle and Solange’s show at the House of Blues on Wednesday night and let’s just say it was definitely the place to be. Solange opened the show playing a short set including some of the crowd favorites, “T.O.N.Y.” and “I DECIDED.” I definitely loved how she mixed Devin The Dude and The Cardigans in with some of her performance tracks. You have to see the show to find out which ones. By the way, she sounded great live and worked the stage like nobody’s business.
Backstage was cool, Solange was preparing while American Idol played in the background. Little Julez was surfing around on the internet and laughing. Popular singer D.A. Wallach from Chester French and DJ Willie Shakes were also backstage waiting on the upcoming show. Everyone was cool and down to earth. Didn’t get to meet the lovely Estelle, but maybe next time. Her set was the truth though! She does not play when it comes to performances.
I also ran into a few Concrete Loop fans and had to show them some love on the site, so make sure to peep all the photos!
