Photos: Janelle Monae

Opening for of Montreal at Terminal 5, visionary funkstress Janelle Monae blew the roof off the joint in support of her electric new album, The ArchAndroid.

Photographer’s Notes

Take ‘The Hardest Working Man in Show Business’ ethos of James Brown, add the high-minded vision of Prince, plus the dance moves of Michael Jackson, and you’ve got Janelle Monae. Not to mention that her vocal acrobatics would make Beyonce blush. Opening for a highly theatrical act like of Montreal is no easy task, but I felt she easily upstaged them. Watch out for The ArchAndroid on every year-end list come December.
