Last night's show was hot. The Gospel queens started with bosco mann on bass and tom brenneck playing guitar. menahan followed. charles bradley joined them for two songs. then came the budos. finally the dap kings played a brief set where they showcased a few new tunes and sharon got to show off her obama earrings. Her obama rap to kick off the set was phenomenal. She held that room in the palm of her hand.
