“I love the gays!”

The quote of the night. As soon as they announced who was coming to the stage, a guy that was standing to the right of me shouted it at the top of his lungs. I knew I was in for something quite interesting.

Last night I went to Tuesday Night Jam and Sugarhill in the Underground. It was a special celebration for the album release (finally) of ATL’s own Algebra Blessett. Algebra (with her “sangin’ ass”) performed some songs off the album and killed it, followed by Joi, who had us feeling all psychedelic like we were on a bad acid trip. After a short intermission, Joi came to the stage and introduced Rahbi…

I have heard of Rahbi before, but I had never seen him perform. My homegirl Cris and I saw him walking around Sugarhill looking FABULOUS earlier in the night, and when he walked by us I proceeded to let him know that he was fabulous by yelling “WORK!” He proceed to hand me a flyer promoting his album above.

Glam soul is here…This man came out on stage vogueing and sashaying. He performed his rendition of “Sweet Dreams” by The Eurythmics…I swear that song will never be the same. Once I got past all of the theatrics that are Rahbi, I realized he was super talented. He performed a couple of songs, then turned the mic back over to Algebra, but not before leaving us with:

“I am the mutha fukkin’ shit!” Yes, Rahbi, you are…and so am I!

All in all, it was a fun night and good to hang out with my homegirl. I got to hear some great music and check out a new artist.

I’m super excited that Thriller is being released on February 11th to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of it’s original release…here’s a snippet of some of the bonus material from the cd.

And of course I had to put up one of the greatest videos EVER — Thriller. I remember the first time I saw it…I was at one of my friend’s houses and a bunch of us were sitting in her den watching the TV intently. No one was making a sound because we were all in awe of what we were seeing. All of a sudden, her father runs in the room, growling with a wolf mask on…we were scared shitless!!! Even after her father traumatizing us, we wanted to watch the video over and over again because it was that great….

Here’s a couple more for you…
“Tell Me (I’ll Be Around)” by Shades
“Just Ask Me To” by Tevin Campbell

I’ve been in a very nostalgic mood recently…from looking at old pictures to catching up with old friends to listening to random music from my childhood. Here are a few songs (and artists) that were my favorites back in the day and I almost forgot about…

These girls could SANG! “Why Can’t You Come Home?” by Ex-Girlfriend

Me and my cousins used to make up dance routines to this song…ha ha ha “Your Sweetness” by The Good Girls

Do you remember Tia and Tamara Mowry’s group??? (What happened to the 2 other girls??) “Yeah Yeah Yeah” by Voices

I used to love this song! “Bug-A-Boo” by Ed O.G. & Da Bulldogs

What were some of the artists and songs you remember from the late 80s and early 90s? What ever happened to groups like Perfect Gentleman, Today, The Good Girls, Ex-Girlfriend, and Blackgirl?
