    Default Janelle 2013

    You may not of noticed her because for whatever reason she's tucked way down at the bottom - but I have a very strong feeling this will be the show everyone talks about once this who party wraps up. Hopefully she gets a night slot...please please give her a night slot!

    Yeah, I'm still amazed she's not huge. This is going to be great.

    SHe'd have higher billing if there was a new album.

    I've heard nothing but rave reviews about her live show and how charismatic/energetic she is. So happy I'll be able to finally witness it.

    One of the best live performers I've ever seen. In the spirit of James Brown.

    She's got so much energy. Quite a few good songs as well. I saw her at Made In America in September and she killed.

    Seriously tho, why isn't she a star? She has the voice and creativity. Her sound is refreshing.

    Shes just too arty and eclectic many...I cant think of another album that tapped as many different musical eras as ArchAndroid 2&3 Where talking contemporary hip hop all the way back to forties big band and early Disney scores with stops at many rock and soul junctures in between.

    But I have seen her live and she is phenomenal great combination of Grace Jones James Brown and Prince and her band is phenomenal. Definite contender for best set of entire weekend. Shes just a natural.

    She'll draw a respectable crowd at first and she will end grabbing the attention of people passing by who will proceed to stick around and watch the rest of her performance. I have watched quite a few of her performances on Palladia and youtube and have yet to discover a single one that didn't look like a complete blast. Her songs represent a wide variety of genres and she's superb as a performer.

    damn that last video got me pumped. looks like it's the big finale of her show though, almost wish i hadn't watched it so i'd be unexpectedly blown away.

    When I caught her, she actually asked the entire audience to get low as the band did. I hope she does that again.

    Saw her at OSL in 2010 and she killed it. I couldn't find a decent video from her stage show, but here's one from the acoustic tent that really shows how emotional she is about her music. She is a must see.

    Set time could be a factor in how her set is received. Raphael Saadiq's night set was weirdly kinda a bust in 2011 when he killed the 3 other times I saw him.

    I really, really wish she was on Sunday. I can't imagine letting myself miss her for anything, but I'm worried she'll get a bum afternoon set instead of the late night party she deserves.

    It figures that an act I've been dying to see for the last 3 years finally gets booked when I'm not attending.

    And yes, she will (unfortunately) be early. Coachella hates putting black women on the stage post sunset, even when they absolutely deserve it (ie, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill).

    you made me trip for like 5 minutes before I read the title of the video. She played OSL 2010 not 2011 (the first year I went).

    Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings played at either 11pm or midnight and tore down the Gobi. I dream of Phoenix ending at midnight and Janelle hitting the Mojave at that time.

    I just saw her a few weeks ago at a private concert that I lucked into probably about 400 people. Its just a 7 or 8 song set but it was amazing. I saw her and her band open for Prince years ago and that was very good but she and her band have got so much better. the Gobi is going to be jammed or at least it will be jamming.
