Janelle Monae – “Archandroid” Release Show @ Highline Ballroom – 5.18.10

First off, a BIG SHOUT-OUT to the homie Lavonda Manning for this one! Got into the building cuz of her and by showing up at the right time… The line to see Janelle Monae stretched from the venue down to 9th Avenue! Anywho… walked into the building to find a “Tightrope” competition going on…

Don’t know what I’m talking about? Check out the video:

Janelle Monae feat. Big Boi – “Tightrope”

Congrats to Rae Holliday from StuffFlyPeopleLike.com for a well-deserved win!

With a packed crowd in attendance, Janelle Monae did not disappoint…she performed selections from “Archandroid” as well as favorites from her EP, “Metropolis Suite I of IV: The Chase” including my favorites “Violet Stars Happy Hunting!” and “Many Moons”! Cloaked beings, silly string, acrobatics and a SICK James Brown-inspired “Tightrope” performance reminded me why I became a fan of this young lady in the first place. Congratulations to Janelle Monae on her album release! Enjoy the photos…
