Jamie Lidell at ACL

-A.S. This was a highly anticipated show for me at ACL following their awesome set at Lollapalooza. I found myself a nice spot up close just before the set, and everyone around me seemed just as excited as I was to see Jamie Lidell.Jamie Lidell has so much soul, that it makes me want to drop to my knees and throw my hands up in the air a la Carlos Zambrano’s no-hitter.

His sax player did not reprise the Raiden hat, but Lidell’s bass player was in the exact same Evil Kenievel/Elvis jumpsuit. Both guys brought the energy from the start, running out onto the stage and hyping up the crowd.

Two of my favorite of Lidell’s songs came early in the set with “Little Bit of Feel Good” and “Another Day.” After that it was time to head over to meet up with Zack. We moved our way into the crowd as Lidell performed “A Little Bit More” which featured some impressive looped vocal jamming.
He may not be wearing a blazer with nothing underneath this time, but is that a bib?

During “Wait For Me,” I told Zack that it seemed like Lidell must have found one of Stevie Wonder’s old notebooks and recorded all of those songs. It made perfect sense at the time, and he understood me. The more I think about it now, it doesn’t work logistically.

The more we listened, the more Zack and I agreed how good Jamie Lidell is. He closed out the set with “Out of My System” and closed his set with the song that first brought him fame. “Multiply,” which was featured on Grey’s Anatomy, finished the set wonderfully with some great singing along from the crowd. I’m excited to see him again back in Chicago at the Metro. Even if it is at the Metro.
