Blackalicious- 4/20 Live In Seattle

April 21st, 2007

As far as music DVD’s go, the market has been flooded with mixtape style insights into the underground scene over the last few year,s with concert offerings few and far between. One of the problems being that unless you were actually at the gig and want to re-live the experience, buying a filming of a gig you didn’t go to is obviously not the same as being there.

Blackalicious try to offer something more than just footage from their sold out show at Seattle’s Showbiz Theatre. To keep the tired concert DVD format interesting, the performances of songs from Gift of Gab and Chief Xcel are split up with interviews from the hard working duo and well wishers alike.

For those that don’t know much about Blackalicious, see this DVD as your education with everything from how they met to their influences being revealed, while those that know may even find out a thing or two that they didn’t know.

When it comes to the live action it’s never going to be as good as being there but with your TV turned up loud, you can begin to appreciate how good a live show they put on with Gift of Gab proving he has just that.
