Isaiah Rashad Concert - at Trees in Dallas, Texas
I can’t even begin to describe how totally excellent Isaiah Rashad’s concert was last night. First of all, Trees is a small, intimate venue. It is my favorite place to see a show in Dallas because now matter where I stand, I feel close to the artist and the stage. The sound is great too.
Rashad put on one hell of a performance. He came out on to the stage slowly. He approached the edge of the stage, greeted the crowd, and let it rip. And when I say let it rip, I mean he got the crowd rockin’ with him from his first word. From there it was on. He went through his whole EP “Civilia Demo” (http://open.spotify.com/album/6JF49ixyHmOgS0Rsda2k42) and some mixtape songs. He was raw and energetic. He was smooth and melodic. He was live and in control. We were all captivated by his presence.
That performance was one of the best performance’s I’ve ever seen. There was not a crazy set. There was not a crazy hype man. It was just him, the DJ, and the crowd. Everyone who was there knew his music which made it even better. Shout out to my boy Will who came along. He’s a new fan and after two days of non-stop listening, he was elated to see Rashad. So was I.
Rashad gets the crowd going with his energy, moves, and mind-control-like MC skills. On stage he sounds as good as he does in the booth. He is polished. He takes what he does in the booth and turns it up on stage. He makes the show an experience. He made the show a place where I got lost in his music.
Thank God for people like Isaiah Rashad. His music goes deep. His lyricism has great range. It can touch your soul in so many ways.
