Clipse @ State Theater

Shooting hip-hop shows is always a bit of a crap shoot (no pun intended), illustrated beautifully by the Clipse show at the State Theater last weekend. After showing up at the venue around 8:45 or so, I staked out a spot up front, shot the openers and waited for the headliners. ย And then only one of them showed up! Malice, one half of the duo that makes up The Clipse, never showed so Pusha T was left to fend for himself at the show.

Strangely the crowd didn’t get upset about this. I shot the show for about 20 minutes and then left because it was almost 1 a.m. and apparently Pusha T only played another few minutes before ending the show. ย So people paid $25 at the door for about 25 minutes of 1/2 of the Clipse. ย Sad. And the killer thing is Pusha T was great! I would have love to have seen a full set including Malice, but it is what it is.

Thank goodness for great sets by openers Tabi Bonney and Mambo Sauce.
