Last night I went to The Howard Theatre with Waverly of Pich & Roor to see R&B singer Miguel. The Howard Theatre is a gorgeous venue. The first floor features a bar, tables on the outskirts for dining and an open floor in the middle for fans to be up close to their favorite artist. The second floor features a bar and tables for dining as well. It’s one of those venues you have to see in person to really understand how nice it is.
Waverly and I arrive around 7pm. We proceeded to the upstairs bar and tried one of the specialty cocktails while enjoying music by DJ Quicksilva. Seriously, he can turn any event into a party! We grabbed a second round of drinks and headed downstairs a little before 8pm to check out the first floor until the show started with an opening performance by Bobby V.
Miguel hit the around 9:15pm and had us jamming to his first album hits and new songs from his upcoming album Kaleidoscope Dreams for over an hour. This was my first time seeing Miguel perform. He is a great live performer! He has great stage presence and you can tell he is very passionate about his music. Waverly even made eye contact with when he came out for an encore which made her night!
I had a great time hanging out with Waverly at the concert. I’d definitely go see him perform again. I need to come back and dine at The Howard Theatre too. If you saw the plate of wings and I think crab cake sandwiches that went by while we were at the bar, you’d understand!
Miguel’s sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dreams drops next Tuesday, October 2, 2012. Support R&B music and get a copy next week. It’s going to be a great one!
