Let’s hear it for Solange, ladies and gentlemen.  As humans we all relate to stepping out of the shadow of another at some point in our lives.  What we don’t relate to is having Beyonce as your older sister.  The pressure, the comparisons, the expectations.  I’d have an ulcer.  But the 26-year-old has found her own groove and look and I can’t stop listening or cyber stalking.  I was lucky to score a ticket for one of her shows at Webster Hall where my obsession was cemented.  Opening with “Some Things Never Seem to Fucking Work” set the tone for her 45-minute set.  With grace and ease, she played everything off her stellar 2012 EP True.  I a fan of “Lovers in the Parking Lot” and “Locked in Closets,” but I’m even more mad for her chilled out “Bad Girls” and “Looks Good With Trouble.”  The crowd lost themselves on “Losing You.” It was my favorite moment aside from her beautiful cover of Selena’s “I Could Fall In Love With You.”  Done deal, Sol.  I’ve fallen.
