When one ponders socialist upheaval, Vladimir Lenin may come to mind as a bomb-tossing leader of throngs storming the castles of capitalism, but that would be inaccurate. Lenin’s contributions lay primarily with propaganda and organization. As is the case with many left-leaning zealots, Lenin worked behind the scenes while the troops got bloody.

Not only was Thursday night the best edition of the “A Night of Soul Searching” to date, it will probably land in my favorite concerts of 2018. This is no shade to any of the artists who participated in my girl Angel’s shows to date – but BB’s was on fire from both sides of the stage thanks to Anthony Hamilton’s background singers stepping out front. I ran into some of my favorite folks up in there. I’d need a whole Partyline to name all of us that miraculously squeezed up into that spot. But I want to public apologize to Tracey McDuffie if at any point my bosom spilled over into your plate of burger and fries! Yes, it was that tight up in there. Life was to be had before the Hamiltones hit the stage. I walked in to my girl Tiffany Elle serving Brandy’s most underrated tune, “Almost Doesn’t Count.” She went from En Vogue to Daniel Caesar letting us have it with that gloriously airy soprano tone of hers. Theresa Payne was slaying in that mid-riff mesh ensemble … do you hear me? She was way more chatty than usual, but I forgave her because the singing in-between the talking was great – and her conversation gave me a chance to focus on how awesome the band was. “The Voice” top 24 finalist Tish Haynes Keys made a surprise appearance was giving Donna Summer realness in a gold blouse and side swept curls. The men of the hour took the stage and while I knew they could sing their faces off, I didn’t know what to expect them to do for a full set. I mean, they have a handful of viral moments and a single – but that’s it outside of backing up Anthony Hamilton. Well I guess they showed me. I was blown away by that trio from start to finish. They were so fire that I got up and followed them out the door like I was the fourth Hamiltone – I wish I could tell you I’m lying, but I can’t.  As awesome as the show was, can somebody tell your cousin that the venue was too small for her to whoop and holler like she was watching “Beychella.” Anyway – they came on that stage and did their boss Anthony Hamilton proud. They had me at Jodeci and kept me with that extended remix and glorious “Sexual Healing” grand finale that turned into a crowd participation choir – which came through with a three-part harmony and reminded me that Angel’s audience is made up of mostly the music scene.
