Okay, when we suggested that the Femi Kuti show was sold out, it's because these evil ticket websites won't let you buy tix day-of-show. What's up with that? Anyway, we'll hold off on such declarations in the future.

Still, we got there early and grabbed some sweet seats in the balcony. Not great for dancing, but perfect for watching the pageantry of the performers and digging on the music. Plus we were sitting next to a friendly, beautiful older woman in traditional Nigerian dress who told us that she was from the same tribe as the Kuti family. Now that's what we call 'keeping it real.' The white guy on the main floor in the mufti? Not so much.
