Tour: Raphael Saadiq and Janel Monae

by Winston "Stone" Ford

This is the tour that NEEDED to happen. We already know that Mr Saadiq puts on an amazing show, but I was getting mad that Ms. Monae was not getting the exposure that she deserved as a recording artist. Paring her with Raaphel might be the best touring combination I’ve heard this year. I’m glad to see that Janelle will finally be in DC on a proper stage.

Check out our Raphael Saadiq interview and our review of Janelle’s SXSW show to get yourself in the mood.
