When Brother Ali brought his Fresh Air Tour to the Barrymore Theatre last month, Madison was treated to a performance by one of the most impressive new stars of the rap world. His latest release, Us, has been widely praised in the music press and has landed on several “Best of 2009″ lists. We were thrilled to bring this Madison-born artist back to town, and from the sounds of this insightful video interview, Ali was pretty thrilled to be here too! Check out what he had to say, and see if you can spot yourself in the crowd shots.
Need more Brother Ali? He’ll take the stage alongside The Roots as the special guest performer on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight. (NBC, 11:35 pm)

If you weren’t at the Barrymore Saturday night (12/05/09) you missed a phenomenal performance by Colbie Caillat and her guitarist/opener Justin Young. Smiling constantly she seemed to enjoy herself as much as the fans did. Colbie’s passion for the music shined through as she led the crowd in sing-alongs and explained lyric meanings. It proved to be an entertaining kick off to the holiday season as she broke in to Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. This classic recording is part of a Special Olympics’ new CD, A Very Special Christmas 7.
Justin Young -a fellow Hawaiian- mesmerized the crowd with his self-described “acoustic based, island influenced, soulful, pop music”.
