Thread: D'Angelo

  1. #1

    Default D'Angelo

    After hundreds of plays, I still haven't worn out Black Messiah, and I think the only way I'm controlling this obsession is if I can somehow see D'Angelo and the Vanguard live once again.

    Where do you think he'll be playing this summer? Pino is on tour with the Who pretty much all year, with only July and August off. This leaves a nice summer window for a Vanguard tour. They have some dates booked in Europe and Japan, but what festivals do you see these guys playing in North America? Assuming OSL is a lock, think we'll see any other dates stateside this summer?

    Waiting for the ticket price to drop down to $30 by 8pm I love when scalpers buy multiple tickets!

    I kinda hope for some ridiculous chance of myself accidentally stepping on the same dude's gators at another D'angelo show. Last time I thought I was going get uppercutted like that Dave Chappelle skit and quicking made my way to tallchris after getting that look of What the fuck from the this giant of a dude.

    I really want to see him live especially this album. If he doesn't do Long Beach Jazz Fest then I think it will be a regular tour stop (if he tours).

    He seems to really, really, really love the House of Blues in LA.

    I would travel to the ends of the earth to see him again. That 2012 show is etched into my mind. Sugah Daddy with all the false endings and vamps, P-Funk cover and D' rockin' the guitar and the keys: a night to remember.

    Have you obsessed similarly over the other two albums? Voodoo is the rightly-hailed classic, but Brown Sugar is a fucking excellent release in its own right. The man has only released brilliant albums, even if it takes quite awhile to get them.

    Did he ever put out that live EP on vinyl? Because that record is also awesome.

    I know they did an expanded re-release a few years ago with all the songs that they didn't originally put on the EP, but I don't think they pressed it on vinyl.

    The shit that everyone needs to check out stat is the live recording from the Cirkus in Stockholm back in 2000. It sounds professionally recorded and the live takes are what originally drew me into the world of D. Left and Right on there goes for over 10 minutes and becomes a monster.

    Apparently D'Angelo and Questlove killed it in Austin last night. Too bad it was a private "dinner party" show...

    This wait is killlllllling me. I'm guessing the ship has sailed on an announcement this week, so it looks like next week it will be. Vanguard keyboardist Pookie Sample said US dates were dropping very soon, and that was almost a week ago.

    That recording is indeed unreal. They've got a similar vibe going on this tour, playing with all the arrangements and getting DANGEROUSLY funky. The bootleg from the Zurich show sounds reeeeeal nice. The show I went to at the Apollo featured a 14-minute version of One Mo Gin that just about broke me with its power. I'm hoping to hit up multiple shows, so I'm hoping there's a hearty mix of festivals and theatre shows this summer.

    What's killing me is that other than OSL, I really have no effin' clue where he might surface.

    Not confirmed but I would be absolutely shocked if he was not there. Superfly hyped up his SNL appearance and the Apollo show on their social accounts, and he owes 'em after cancelling in 2013. And OSL falls right in the middle of the Vanguard availability window.

    With OSL (along with quite a few other festivals) announcing their lineups on Tuesday, I submit that next week is when we get our D'Angelo dates. Pookie said we are only days away from the announcement of US dates this summer. It all adds up. I melt down my Black Messiah vinyl and drink it in a smoothie if D'Angelo is not on this OSL lineup.

    My only problem with Black Messiah is how hard it is to hear the lyrics. Like I've listen to Sugah Daddy three times today trying to hear him say pussy fart. And when he says it at 3:47 in case you have a mentality of a little kid like me.

    Is D'Angelo booking dates around the Who so they can share Pino Palledino on bass?

    Yep. Ain't no Vanguard without Pino.

    Well, as guaranteed, OSL is the first of the D'Angelo dates. NOW WHERE THE HELL ELSE IS THE VANGUARD GONNA SHOW UP?!?

    Gotta know so I can start planning my summer!
