Idle Warship aka Res and Talib Kweli at the Loft: 8 highlights

18 Feb

Idle Warship, aka Res and Talib Kweli, with Sa-Roc and Rock Most, at the Loft on Thurs., Feb. 16.

Eight quick highlights, in order of appearance:

  1. Rock Most’s sweater.
  2. The Rock Most Step. Sorry, I can’t explain it.
  3. Sa-Roc’s entire set. Almost brought tears to my eyes. But the head nodding knocked them out.
  4. Flautist Rasheedah Ali and vocalist Poodie the Byz on “Rain and Sunshine.”
  5. Res taking off her patent-leather booties and putting on a pair of gray Nike mid-tops. All while singing.
  6. “Are You In?”
  7. Res as Stevie Nicks, as in “Dreams.” As in a new EP coming out this summer called Refried Mac full of Fleetwood covers.
  8. Talib Kweli in full big stick swag mode with “Detroit Rock City.” (Thank you, Piggie Holland.)
