Friday, May 17th SOJA hit NYC’s Webster Hall and filled the room with good music, happy ears, dancing feet, and smiling faces. I sound like a smitten 5 year old girl, but for as many of their shows as I have been to, I always leave better, happier, lighter, than I did when I got there. Is it just me? There have got to be a few more soldiers out there with me…
Anyway, because I missed Los Rakas open the night, I waltzed into the room to Nahko Bear’s party. Medicine for the People is a special band in that they sound better than they do recorded or on any YouTube video. For instance, “Risk It” is a serious burst of energy in the form of a song. This band need to make their way on to your iPod because they, too, will give you good music, happy ears, dancing feet, and a smiling face.
