With Janelle Monae
10.24.10 | Ogden Theatre, Denver, CO
After seeing Janelle Monae perform on Saturday night, it's no wonder that she was picked by Erykah Badu to open her most recent tour. Monae isn't just a great soul singer; her songwriting and her band set her far apart from the average R&B artist we've seen in recent years. It's as though Monae fused soul with psychedelic rock and funk in a way that could only really come out of Atlanta. Monae's raw energy and dynamism was infectious, and the crowd seemed entirely taken with every song.
