Concert Review: Aloe Blacc, Enmore Theatre


Seeing Aloe Blacc at the Enmore Theatre on January 4 was the meat in a musical sandwich of a week which started with Guy Sebastian, Pet Shop Boys, Jamiroquai and Culture Club on New Year’s Eve and concluded with Gurrumul, Washington and Manu Chao at the Domain. I’m here to tell you that Aloe Blacc can certainly hold his own with those other musical superstars.

I must offer my apologies to Maya Jupiter as we arrived midway through the Electric Empire set and missed her performance. But judging by her duet during the encore with Aloe, I’m sure she was great.

Locals Electric Empire were a fitting support act for Aloe Blacc. They played their “funked-up out-n-out feel good soul” to an appreciative audience. It felt like a time warp back to the golden era of soul as the crowd got down and funky on the dancefloor. They finished off with an impressive set of harmonies. The Aloe Blacc tour has raised Electric Empire’s profile they are currently sitting at number 3 in
the iTunes RnB Soul charts, which is great to see.

Aloe Blacc in concertThe lights went down and Aloe Blacc’s band, The Grand Scheme started to play the opening riff from Stevie Wonder’s Living for the City to excited applause from the crowd. The tension built and finally Aloe
came out, busting out a track and showing us why he has become a worldwide sensation.  He  introduced the band members which included a saxophone and trumpet player, who each played a solo. The keyboard
player gave us a sample of the theme song from Beverly Hills Cop, Axel F, adding to the sense of American pop culture nostalgia.

The Enmore Theatre was the perfect venue to witness Aloe’s smooth crooning. His powerful voice is even better live, and he effortlessly crosses different genres. He added to the entertainment value with
some funky soul dance moves to complement a vintage suit and waistcoat.

The band played many of the songs from the Good Things album, including Green Lights, Femme Fatale, Hey There Brother and Mama Hold My Hand. On Miss Fortune, which I had on high rotation on my iPod during a recent US holiday, a harpist joined the stage, adding to the atmospheric sound.

Aloe informed us that he got his start in hip hop, and rapped to one of his hip hop tracks, which was well received. For You Make Me Smile, he urged us to “hug the person next to you if they make you smile.”

When I Need a Dollar came on, the crowd went wild, singing and dancing along like there was no tomorrow. I happened to have a dollar note with me from my trip to the States, which my friend urged me to throw onstage. Aloe picked it up and showed it to the crowd, who laughed and cheered while simultaneously dancing.

For the encore, Aloe sang a soulful version of Billie Jean. I was wracking my brains wondering which song he hadn’t played yet, when
Loving You is Killing Me came on. The  catchy soul pop song was the perfect end to a great gig, and we all left on a high.

All in all a good time was had by all. I’d recommend anyone to catch Aloe Blacc when you get a chance.

BIG BOI with Full LIVE BAND + Theophilus London LIVE IN SYDNEY (Sat 27th AUG) @ Enmore Presented by Niche Productions + AFTER PARY INFO BIG BOI AUSTRALIAN TOUR VIDEO


 

Big Boi + Theophilus LondonSydney

Support: Thundamentals

27 August 2011
Enmore Theatre – Sydney


BIG BOI
(w/ full live band)
with special guest Theophilus London (Brooklyn, NYC)
supported by triple j, MTV and Lifelounge

As one half of Grammy winning duo Outkast, he has sold more than 25 million albums and directed the world’s attention to Southern Rap over a decade before anyone had heard of Lil Wayne. His debut solo album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty was without doubt one of the biggest releases of 2010, culminating in numerous accolades including triple j album of the week and finding its place in many ‘best of 2010’ lists just a few months ago. Brief promotional performances in Australia last year had people salivating for more and now, Niche Productions can confirm that Big Boi is back! And he’s bringing his full live band and AV/Show with him!

As a headline performer at numerous festivals across the globe last year, Big Boi aka Antwan Andre Patton wins the crowd over with a high energy set featuring belters from his solo album including pop crossover ‘Follow Us,’ the street banger ‘General Patton’ and of course, one of the breakthrough singles of 2010 ‘Shutterbugg’ as well as incorporating classic Outkast material such as ‘I Like The Way You Move,’ ‘Rosa Parks’ and ‘So Fresh So Clean’ with the accompanying music videos blasted on screens. Add to that the extra oomph of bass, guitar, horns and of course DJ and hype man and you have one of the world’s most fun and electric live shows.

After 2006’s Outkast album and film Idlewild, Big Boi kept busy working on Sir Lucious Leftfoot… in between projects with the Atlanta Ballet Company and nurturing up and coming talent Janelle Monae, whose debut solo album was another crossover hit of 2010, proving he is as much the creative chameleon as his partner in rhyme, Andre 3000.

Accolades for Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son Of Chico Dusty
• triple j Album of the Week
• #77 ‘Shutterbugg’ – triple j Hottest 100
• Top 40 ARIA Chart album
• #3 Debut on Billboard 200 Chart
• #4 Best Albums of 2010 – Pitchfork
• #14 Best Songs of 2010 ‘Shutterbugg’ – Rolling Stone
• #21 Best Albums of 2010 – Rolling Stone

Joining Big Boi will be Brooklyn, NYC artist Theophilus London for his debut tour of the country. With his debut EP Lovers Holiday recently released by Warner, London has already gathered a swag of fans and praise for his three mixtapes The Lovers, This Charming Mixtape and Jam! and is considered by many as a style icon both musically and in fashion. He has already collaborated with Mark Ronson for a Gucci promotion and separately with The Daptones for his cover of Calypso Blues (made popular by Nat King Cole) as well as referencing Elvis Costello on the cover for his Charming mixtape. His style on Lovers Holiday effortlessly traverses Chillwave, Hip-Hop, RnB, Electro, Slo Mo House, Boogie and Soul and a recent appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman has him poised in the eyes of many to take over once his full length album drops in May.

With a career spanning nearly two decades and still innovating Rap, Soul and Hip-Hop, Big Boi is a pioneer who is cherished across a number of genres. Do not miss ‘General Patton’ and his superb live band together with Theophilus London as they touch down across Australia and New Zealand in August and September 2011.
