Last night, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Howard Gillman Opera House, Roots drummer Questlove touted a talented network of friends for the first night of his conceptual music showcase, “Shuffle Culture.” The idea behind the show, simply enough, is to create the live equivalent of listening to your iPod on shuffle mode. So last night’s acts jumped from one genre to another — sometimes smoothly and sometimes with a bit of frustration — employing different media types along the way. Ironically enough, it was obvious the show was well-rehearsed and un-shuffled, according to Hive photographer Loren Wohl. Questlove, the only one in a sharp black suit (the other performers wore all-white outfits), orchestrated performances that included beat-boxing from Kenny Muhammad and Rahzel, a poem recited by Entourage star Sasha Grey, plus an indie rock performance from twee experimentalists Deerhoof. Check out Wohl’s photographs of the event below. Shuffle Culture takes place again tonight, April 20, at BAM.
