best urban gospel gig: zola jesus at knitting factory, brooklyn. friends, nika can sing. she's got pipes in a bellowy, enchanting tone. gurl can dance too. she even jumped into the crowd to sail through her fans. she almost tripped on my neighbors briefcase. ahmazing, ahmazing. this pint size dynamo can really pack a punch. she's at lpr tonight, if you can get tickets. better yet, stream the concert live via npr. amen.
