I was very impressed with Sage's performance, particularly his newer material. I enjoyed the incorporation of a live band with this creative lyrics as opposed to his earlier work in which he would use a sample or backing track; I think it makes his songs more dynamic. Standout tracks like "Little Houdini" and "The Best of Times", both from Li(f)e, showcased Sage's diversity from lightning fast lyrics to the down tempo, singer-songwriter rhymes of "...Times". I was very happy to have caught Sage, despite my lack of knowledge of his catalog, because he declared his indefinite hiatus following his current tour. So do yourself a favor and pick a copy of Li(f)e or catch Sage before he hangs up his towel. Pictures and videos of the show are below.
