A substantial part of growth is change, but that change doesn’t necessarily have to come with a consequence of losing yourself. Those more fierce qualities about you, sometimes less than agreeable, don’t have to be muted to move forwarded.

“Woooow… That’s Craaaaazy” was the phrase I repeated over and over to myself, as the night built for the anxiously awaited return home for DC’s prolific son Wale! This was what it’s supposed to feel like when you’re a hometown hero. The Fillmore Silver Spring was supposed to have a line wrapped around the block. You’re supposed to bring out the homies Q Da Fool & Young Chris. What would normally amount to a ton of pressure, didn’t phase Wale. He just feels the strength: He loves his city and it loves him.

As a graduate of the School Of Hard Knocks, the course Science of Speech was probably one of my favorite classes. The importance of linguistics when presenting an idea or just involving yourself in casual conversation cannot be emphasized enough. Pairing complex thoughts and ideas into 16 bar verses has been studied for ages but only perfected by an elite few. Honorary professors Talib Kweli, Styles P, and Dead Prez are among those blessed enough to harness the power of speech, which they did at The Fillmore Silver Spring recently.

It takes supreme confidence to begin a concert with a spoken word poem followed by a gentle, acoustic ballad. Neither tend to elicit the excited energy that is often expected at the start of a pop show, but Andy Grammer proved that expectations can be mistaken when he recently electrified the crowd at The Fillmore Silver Spring by doing exactly that.
