The opener Sun Ra (different from Sun Ra Arkestra) came complete with flashy outfits and go-go dancers. Gotta love the live band and hip hop crew combination. Reminded me a bit of Digable Planets. Can't find them online but they said it was rare for them to be together. Only identifier- "we're from the land of moo."

Jim Jones laid it down last night at Mercury Lounge. He played some old school hits like "Certified Ganstas" and "Jackin Swagga From Us." The performance was re-scheduled from an earlier date and it finally sold out. Jones was joined on stage by Ron Browz of "Pop Champagne" fame who's coming out with his own album sooner than later. The crowd went crazier for Browz than Jones. People had their cell phones and cameras out but only a select few were really getting down :( Come on NYC!
