Esthero hit a particularly fan-packed Irving Plaza last night. Everyone from drag queens to Birkenstocked collegiates to Andre 3000 and Pharaoe Monch came out to see the Canadian chanteuse and company (trombonist, holler!) do their thing.
After Prince Paul warmed the crowd up DJing lots of early 90s hip-hop, Esthero took the stage to perform tracks from the new Wikked Lil' Grrrls as well a slew of old favorites. The capacity crowd went bat shit crazy for all of 'em. Dre - who's collab "Junglebook" made its way onto promo copies of Wikked, but not the commercial LP - was in the house to support, and was fully digging the show as well.
