Matthew Lurie of the Chicago Tribune was on hand for the Kurtis Blow concert Thursday night at the Double Door. Lurie writes, “Replete in a gleaming red-and-white Adidas track suit and baseball cap turned slightly to the right, Blow made no attempt to cast himself as anything but a carefree tour guide. Even so, for a performer who received the 2003 Pioneer Award from The Source Magazine, his interaction with the audience in the half-filled room was perfunctory. Many in the crowd, mostly people old enough to have lived through Blow’s early ’80s heyday, did not seem to know quite what to make of the former star’s banter.”
