Wu-Tang, while always good for an unexpected turn or two, did something absolutely unprecedented at their Boston show last week: they showed up on time. In fact, the show ended at least an hour before they usually go on.
Despite the early onset, Meth, Ghost, and every other living member besides RZA brought much ruckus, pain, and so forth. Highlights included a heavy-duty "'97 Mentality," an appearance by Young Dirty Bastard (pic below), and Raekwon wearing one of those Vermont sweatshirts that they sell at highway rest stops.
I'm looking forward to the January 3 follow-up show (with Bad Rabbits opening); hopefully it will complement the jump-off by going deeper into side and solo projects. And lastly, if the Wu-Tang car girl from Quincy is in the house, please say what's up. You're kind of a legend around here, and we'd like to meet you.
