THEEsatisfaction @ 7th St. Entry
August 28, 2012
Taking the stage at the 7th Street Entry on August 28th was female-funk duo THEESatisfaction. With no other instruments besides a computer, the two surprisingly owned the stage for the entire night, largely due to their synchronized dance steps and sassy finger snaps. The two write their own beats, and have made numerous mixtapes prior to their debut album release: awE naturalE. The setlist included a good amount songs from the album as well as mixtapes and even a few new songs. Most of their songs average only about two minutes long, however each funky/soulful hip-hop jam flowed right into the next; the crowd was entranced in one continuous groove the entire time. The audience was given two encores (one may only count as half because the two never actually left the stage). It's safe to say that the people inside the Entry that night felt a whole lot closer to living in the 70s, and witnessed a performance of truly funk-ified, hip-hop inspired soul music.
