Weird. Weird. Weird….
Ok so I got inside the club around 9:30, met up with my homegirl, grabbed a drink and then moved close to the dance floor. Tell me why everyone was standing around the dance floor but no one would go out there and dance. I mean it was this big ass circle around the dance floor and people were just two stepping where they were standing. My homegirl was like “what is this high school prom?” It was a hot mess. The DJ was really trying to throw out songs that make people get on the dance floor but these people wouldn’t budge. Next thing I know it was 10:00 which was when I was told the show would start and I saw people setting things up on the stage, so I told my homegirl “man let’s just go on out there and get our spot”. SOOOOON as we got on the dance floor everybody came flooding in like a stampede. We just looked at each other like REALLY…REALLY?
Jagged Edge came on stage around 10:30 and I couldn’t even tell you what song they started out with. I don’t know. I have no clue. I will say they looked great, and besides a few muffled moments here and there, they sounded great too. A lot of times when you see artist now who came out back in the 90’s they look all out of shape and sometimes it’s a drastic difference in the way they look now compared to back then. But these guys looked good. Although I’m not into beards so I wasn’t feeling that beard Kyle was rockin. Anywho the fellas are promoting their new album J.E. Heartbreak II with the first single called “Hope” which they did sing at the concert. It took me listening to it a second time to like it and appreciate it. The first J.E. Heartbreak was/is the shiznit so I’m sure this one will be too. It will be available October 27th and I will be downloading because I’ve already heard snippets on their Facebook page and I liiike. Other songs they did at the concert was “Wednesday Lover”, “Promise”, “Let’s Get Married”, “He Can’t Love You”, and “Nice and Slow” by Usher which the twins co-wrote (Who knew that? lol). They ended the show with “Where The Party At” sometime around 11:00. During the show I wound up moving further away from the stage because being right on the stage made it hard for me to get all of them in the video. So I let two women get in front of me. If I would rate the show from 1-10 I would give it a 7. Here’s why…
During the show one of the twins was constantly looking at his phone majority of the time. I can’t tell you which one it was, I can only describe him as the thicker/heavier twin. I noticed as soon as he came on the stage he had the mic in one hand and his phone in the other. I was thinking maybe he was going to take a pic or video of the crowd but that wasn’t it. He kept looking at it all throughout the show and all I could think was is something wrong. I’m sure not many people noticed it, but for someone like me who blogs about concerts it’s my job to pay attention to detail. So because I noticed it, it was hard for me to really turn up like everyone else and really focus on just the performance. Then there was a moment where he stood back by the DJ while the others sang up closer to the audience. Even the DJ was looking at him like bro you alright? Then they had like this intermission where the DJ engaged with the crowd (a part of the show that I could’ve went without) but this same twin left off the stage while the other three remained. Once the intermission was over they kinda stalled before singing the next song until he came back on the stage. I honestly don’t know what to make of all this. Maybe he was waiting on a phone call IDK. It’s very clear to see in the videos (excuse the base I’m still working on that) exactly what I’m talking about. Theeen a couple times I felt like when it came to the ad libs they were singing over each other. It was a lot of “wooo yeah” Jodeci style that I didn’t care for either. Kyle seemed to be into the choreography more than anyone lol. In one of my videos you can see one of the twins stumble on another person but hey the stage is small so I don’t count that.
*sigh* IDK… for a $30 ticket I ain’t trippin. Would I go see them again, maybe. If I do I won’t be focused on trying to record so maybe it will be better. Peep the links and videos below. The first two videos will show you what I’m talkin about. Don’t forget to like and share 🙂
