As if attending an Idan Raichel Project show wasn’t exciting enough — and it is, believe me — last night’s show at the Fillmore East in NYC featured a spontaneous performance by Matisyahu, who’d been hanging in the VIP section, and Y-Love, who embraced the collaboration as the monumental moment it was bound to become. I hung out with Tahli Miller (Mrs. Yahu) who was sans kids for the night. We talked about her film in progress about shomer negiah relationships, and she promised to let Jewlicious know when she had a trailer or something to share.
After the show, I spied Y-Love briefly, and he was a little breathless, as he tried to take in the convergence that was that moment, but mostly, you could tell how excited he was to have performed on such a stage.
Want a longwinded account of the concert experience? As usual, I can provide you with that.
