Janelle Monáe

Afropunk Fest. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2012 v5n1 p0826

Beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean, at least it is here, in the north east US. Sounding not good in the south east. Weather advisories on

I am in Brooklyn, my eyes and ears are still resonating from the weekend's Afropunk Fest.

I learned something new. You know how we believe that few men grow past 6 feet, and only superstar basketball players are over 7 feet tall? Not true. You just don't see them. They come out at music festivals and plonk themselves in the very front row, and gyrate madly. I have photos to prove this.

Janelle Monáe sang Electric Lady at Brooklyn Afropunk Fest. Electric indeed. Picture of Janelle above, that I took during her concert. She and her band jumped and danced and sang and played, pure energy. Which I like a lot, being of the energetic persuasion myself.

The Bed Stuy Vollies were out in force for a second day; they dealt professionally with persons becoming unconscious, broken leg, blood pouring out of leg wounds. They would all have loved to be gyrating and dancing with the rest of the crowd, but they stayed by their posts and took care of business. As the Commander Rocky Robinson likes to say, "While everyone else was singing We Are the World, Bed Stuy Vollies was on the ground in Haiti, kicking out locks and setting up a hospital."
