I was hoping that Janelle Monae was gonna tear the roof off the sucka, but as it turned out, she just loosened a few shingles.

Yes, she sang great, especially on “Cold War” and the bouncy soul-pop of “Wondaland.” She’s a born entertainer with oodles of charisma, as was evidenced by her shoot-out with zombie nuns during “Sincerely, Jane.” And the gal can dance, too, especially during the show-closer “Tightrope,” where she flashed some fancy James Brown-like, old-school, soul work-out footwork.

We didn’t catch all of the music – with two stages running simultaneously all day long – it was nearly impossible, especially after 2:30pm when the rapidly growing crowd made the stage-to-stage dash difficult, to say the least.

But we saw a lot of music – and it was all pretty good stuff.
