We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our FIRST live show! Listening fam, real life fam and new  members to the Poplife fam came out Thank you to Marcus Samuelson and the entire Red Rooster Harlem team including Angela and Dina; thank you to DJ Goldfinger for holding us down with the Uptown classics; thank you to the listening fam, friends of the show, and new Poplife fam for being an active crowd; thanks to our incredible guest Bevy Smith (of the Uptown Smiths) for being her Bevelatious self; and to her sister Stephanie Long-Smith for bringing the rum cake, even though Jeff wouldn't let Naima eat it live; and thanks to the listening family who sent us your excitement and encouragement even though you couldn't be there!

Watch this space for recap video (and hopefully show audio — we gotta take a listen) and more in the upcoming days. And there will be more #PoplifeLive shows to come in 2020!
