02/02/07 Galactic/Reggie Watts @ Irving Plaza, New York, NY

I came for Galactic, but I was pleasantly surprised by opener Reggie Watts. I had previously seen him and his powerful pipes sit in with Soulive. I also knew that he fronted a Pacific Northwest R&B soul funk group called Maktub, so I figured I'd be catching something along those lines.

What I learned is that Reggie Watts had decided to divert his considerable vocal talents to the field of alternative comedy, combining looped beats with off-kilter, tongue-in-cheek witticisms and observations to create some of the most original comedic material I've ever witnessed. It truly must be seen to be understood.
