Janelle Monae.......

I was invited by a good friend a couple weeks ago to see this lovely woman perform at Schuba's in Chicago. She may be one of the most splindifferous people on the western hemisphere and her moves are second only to Little Joe Dancer. The only problem I had with J.M. was that her performance epitomized "form over function." But it didn't have to...the girl has an impressively strong vocal chord/diaphragm combo and I would've loved for it to been a little more about "the music." That's just personal preference, though. I still think one of the only worthy acts in music today.
