I got asked last minute to play bass for Consequence at SOB’s. The show was rad. Playing with Statik Selektah and Rik Cordero DJing, Paula Campbell singing and guests John Legend & Ryan Leslie.
Went for pizza at nearby Spunto. Good fancy thin crust pizza. Perhaps thin crust is the way to go before a show. You never want to get too stuffed before a performance …or too drunk. HOT 97 and Hennessy sponsored the show. They put one bottle in the green room. That sucker went fast.
Jade and Curtis Santiago opened the show. I dug Curtis’ performance and dance moves. He does a lot of pop rock remixes of songs from T.I., Liykke Li, Kings of Leon, Tegan and Sara. You can download his mixtape here.

I was afraid John Legend would turn around and tell me there’s no bass on this song.
Ryan Leslie kept turning his head quickly back at me and I thought I had fucked up. But I think that’s just his dance moves.
