Brother Ali

I was ecstatic when I heard Brother Ali was coming to Columbia. The show last night was small but intimate. Ali told the crowd he didn't want a performance that separated him from his audience but a party that brought US all together. His set list included classics like Truth Is, and Uncle Sam Goddamn but he also went off his 2009 album US including Tightrope and Fresh Air. It was definitely a different experience than seeing him in Minneapolis where he draws a crowd packed to the brim but nonetheless still an incredible show. I had the privilege of chatting with him after the show thanking him for coming out to Columbia and talking about Minnesota. He was very genuine and made an effort to connect with the audience during the show and after.
