Frank Ocean performing “Dust/Acura Integurl”
On Sunday evening Frank Ocean made good on his promise to come back East and perform his first New York City show. Earlier this month, Frank cancelled his set an hour before showtime, due to being sick. However, his rescheduled show was well worth the wait.
Dressed in his standard show uniform: a fitted suit and carefully tied bandana, Franky hit the stage with just his mic. Screaming girls pretty much took over my right ear but my left was definitely channeled in on the man of the hour. He sounded great and very much like his recordings, though I do think I heard him singing over vocals at some points. Overall, I’d say he rocked. After a few more of these, I think he’ll fully reach his comfort level and master his live show. Frank’s going to be here a while.
