I met Katie Jane, and Britton Paine, at the Social (54 North Orange Ave, Orlando, FL) to hear Blackalicious perform. I ordered a drink and sketched the band as they set up on stage. The place gradually filled up as I sketched. We must have arrived very early. The concert itself was a blast. Blackalicious i a bulky mass of a performer and he dominate the stage and crowd. The pit in front of the stage filled with a unified dancing mass.
Blackalicious took the stage again, and his rap lyrics seemed absolutely spontaneous as if s constant improvised flow.Another rapper got the crowd to raise their hands and pump their fists in the air. I have never experienced a mo lively and raucous concert. the social is small which keeps , performers and audience in close proximity. Sketching to rap music is a joy. I couldn't stop myself and ended up do in y third sketch. What ever happened to my "one a day" mantra? Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. In an inebriated moment of inspiration I might produce some thing unexpected.
