Bilal doing his thing...

The Trouble with Neo Soul Shows

So last night my best friend and I went to see Bilal at the Double Door. I love Bilal and had never seen him perform live. The tickets were inexpensive and I knew the atmosphere at the Double Door would be chill. We got there soon after the doors opened to cop a seat (it's standing room only). You know how artists show up a few hours after the doors open so I knew I'd want to sit at some point, especially with heels. Okay here's the thing with going to see neo-soul artists, they attract a soulful crowd. Very indie, hip hop, Afro-centric...a beautiful crowd always. Now although I'm admiring my sistas' naturals, braids, locks, big weaves and Erykah Badu inspired 1 foot and a half tall head-wraps, I am hoping that only short girls with ultra relaxed hair stand in front of me. Why? Because if you have a natural on a tall girl standing right in front of you, you can't see sh*t!!! I don't know how people could enjoy a movie or concert in the 70s!!!! The show was good and I enjoyed myself all jokes aside. Check him out if you get a chance.

Here we go...

Okay so tonight I finally stopped saying, "I'm gonna" and actually created my very first blog. This is my first post and I am extremely excited and nervous. I wonder who will see this and more importantly, who will care! Anyway, the title came from a homeless man who heckled/complimented me last week on my lunch break while walking downtown. He shouted, 'Hey Milky Way!! You so chocolate-ty!! It was so loud the man walking in front of my friend and I turned around and looked absolutely concerned. I thought it was funny. I mean he obviously had a mental problem. Plus, I can think of many more insulting things that could have come out of his mouth!!!! So although you probably don't remember me or have computer access for that matter, thank you Mr. Homeless Man! For christening my first and only blog, you are the appointed godfather! Cheers and God Bless!
