Ok, I know I’ve written a lot of articles about D’Angelo. No seriously, I’ve written a lot of articles about this dude. Besides Prince, Michael Archer is my favorite artist ever. Ever! With that being said, I keep hoping he’ll drop some new music to satisfy my fiendish behavior. Instead, however, I’m beginning to believe he simply enjoys toying with us. Maybe he’d rather show up to a concert for 5 seconds, perform some amazing shit and then disappear into the abyss. Well you know what, I can’t take it anymore. I’m no longer supporting D’Angelo.
When I heard about D’Angelo’s 2-man show with ?uestlove at Brooklyn Bowl recently, I got excited and then depressed. Once again, homie comes out of the wilderness to get everyone hyped, only to vanish shortly after. Despite the fact he said his album was almost done, I very skeptically looked at that announcement with the Cam Face. The “I’ll believe it when I see it while traveling in a UFO” face. I want to believe the news, but at this point, I should know better. I convince myself I should just be happy he’s playing music again. That gives me some sort of misguided comfort. But enough is enough. He will no longer be the subject of my stan-hood, because he doesn’t deserve it. Fuck him for all of the time he’s wasted. That’s right, I said it.
In the end, everything I just said in this post is complete bullshit. I will be at his next shows, I will continue to play his old music and I will continue to impatiently wait for his new album. That’s what addicts do, right? Right. In any case, you can check out some footage from his Brooklyn Bowl show below. Good day.
