Yes, you read it right! I had my tooth pulled out, but that didn't stop me from seeing one of my favorite soul bands, Hiatus Kayiote last week.
If you follow me on Instagram, you would have saw my picture of my ticket to the Hiatus Kaiyote show at the Underground Arts in Philly on May 8, 2015!
I woke up on May 8 to excruciating tooth pain (lower right molar) that resulted in me getting my tooth removed (it was infected, it had to go).
While on my nova-cane high, I pondered if I was still in good shape to go to the concert. Most would rush to conclusion and say no, but I had to sleep on it… A few hours and 100's mgs of Ibuprofen later I decided to go see Hiatus Kaiyote for the second time! Hey, if you listened to new futuristic soul jazz infused album Choose Your Weapon, you would want to see them perform live!
When I graced my presence at the packed Underground Arts (the name speaks for itself) venue I got in just in time to see Philly songstress Kate Faust perform. She has an electronic soulful vibe about her music that caught my attention and she gave a performance worthy of wanting to listen to her upcoming album Eros (I will preview her album soon).
Once Kate Faust performance was over (I would have love to see more), a 15-20 minute for Hiatus Kaiyote ensued for the band to set up for the performance. Oh no worries, the DJ was playing some good tunes that had the whole crowd moving, including me!
