Sly & The Family Stone @ BB King’s, NYC (show 4 of 4) – pics

Sly & The Family Stone

I heard the early show wasn’t that good again (update: maybe I heard wrong!), so I feel lucky to have picked the late show – the fourth of four NYC shows by Sly & The Family Stone at the relatively intimate BB King’s in Times Square – the 2nd of two that were last night (Dec 7, 2007).

Doors were supposed to open at 10pm. They didn’t. The show was supposed to start at 10:30. It started at midnight. Standing around sucks – missing Bon Iver when I didn’t really have to sucks. I was a little grumpy. Then Sly hit the stage, and all grumpiness instantly disappeared – and not only did Sly hit the stage, he stayed on it for most of the 70-or-so minute show (though he never came back for the encore that the rest of the band treated us to). He sounded great, the band sounded great – the whole room seemed to be having a good time. They played hit after hit (setlist anyone?). Sly was in good spirits, danced, and interacted with the crowd. Everyone definitely got their money’s worth. Amazing experience. More photos below…

Sebastian Bach was seen leaving the early show. Chris Rock and Q-Tip were spotted at the late show. The show was being recorded (Sly told us so). One of the guys also said they’d be back.
