Me’shell Ndegeocello celebrated the release of her latest album Devil’s Halo by performing at New York’s Highline Ballroom on October 6, 2009.
Me’shell has a really solid fan base and she treated us to old and new songs, plus two great covers: Dirty Mind by Prince and Love You Down by Ready For The World! She funked up those songs to the point where they now belong to her. Because Me’shell is prone to epilepsy caused by flash photography, she pretty much performed the entire show in the dark. That worked out fine for me, since I was in the front row, but my usual high quality pictures that I present to my readers unfortunately suffered as a result. As this was my first time seeing Me’shell, I loved that the audience was so engrossed in the show, that when she sang, you could literally hear a pin drop because everyone was so focused on her words and music. The amazing singer of “Living For The Weekend,” Jill Jones was also in attendance for this beautiful night.
See another shot of Me’shell, plus the handwritten set list and the handwritten lyrics to Dirty Mind (so as not to forget the words) after the jump. Both the lyrics and the set list are now resting comfortably in the G archives.
