Dos Equis Presents: “The Most Interesting Show in the World / The Brother Ali Fresh Tour (Recap) (October 29th, 2009)

Well, first off let me say it was raining cats and dogs on the way to the show, and per the arrival. Surprisingly, there was a long line around the building for "The Most Interesting Show in the World". Well let me retract that statement, "Dos Equis" was sponsoring the event and they were handing out free beer is the reason there was a line around the building. Yes, I said "FREE"! "All night Long" =)

After indulging in several free Dos Equis brews, and becoming very inebriated, I headed over to catch The Brother Ali / Evidence Show. I have to say I was a bit disappointed on the turn out, but it was raining cats and dogs. Toki Right and BK One opened the show with some party rockin' gems and little of call and response to set the mood. Needless to say, the people were somewhat responsive. That's Houston...We chill with our cool on in this city. After about an hour of DJ'ing, Evidence entered the stage an set it on "FIRE". Dude was not playing as he captured and intensified the crowd with the quickness! Evidence literally woke everyone up out of their deep comatose. Thank God!!! He did a lot of tracks from the Weatherman LP, along with some classic Dilated joints to get a huge rise out of the fans. At this point he had me OPEN! Evidence rocked a beautiful set and next up to bat was Brother Ali.

Now, Ali's set was dope, BUT Evidence's set was so damn exhilarating that I was somewhat disappointed about Ali's set. Ali performed a lot of joints of his new album "Us" which is in stores right now. His set consisted of a lot of visuals, acapella's, and some preaching. It was very uplifting and insightful =)

Here's some video's and pics:
