In an hour-plus set that didn’t start until 1:15 a.m. and continued even after the venue operators had turned on the lights and cut off Hill’s mic, it was as though James Brown himself had inhabited her body as she let out howls, shrieks, and fist pumps of encouragement to her band.
The band kicked off the set with an almost free jazz-style intro jam, with Hill taking the stage and almost immediately storming into a hyperspeed version of her hit “Lost Ones,” rattling off telling lines like, “I was hopeless now I’m on hope road” in rapid-fire fashion (read more)
