The Revolution at The TLA, Philadelphia, PA, April 30, 2017

Revolution 4-30-17 Ticket

The Revolution’s second night in Philly was magical. The setlist was the same as the first night but the band seemed even tighter than it was for the first show. My favorite moment came during “Controversy” and “Mutiny”, when Wendy Melvoin really showcased her chops as one of the finest rhythm guitarists of all time. She and Brown Mark played off of each other’s cues beautifully and stretched out for one of the funkiest instrumental breaks I’ve ever experienced at a live show. The entire band kicked ass, but this moment was the high point of the evening for me. There are sometimes those rare, euphoric moments of sheer musical ecstasy that occur at concerts when you find yourself smiling ear-to-ear like a kid on Christmas Day. For me, this was one of those moments and it alone was worth the price of admission. There were many magical moments, but Wendy’s playing during “Controversy” and “Mutiny” will be one of those moments that I’ll be talking about for years to come. If you haven’t seen The Revolution before and you are lucky enough to see them soon, you’re in for a real treat!
