Missing Janelle Monae at Johnny Brenda's earlier this month was almost enough to make me wish I hadn't gone to Texas for SXSW. Almost. (a.d. amorosi's Inky review of that show is here.) No return dates announced yet, but Monae will be back around, I'm sure, since the sci-fi R & B all around entertainer's The ArchAndroid is due out in May. Meantime, here's the just released video for the tuxedoed Kansas City, Kansas-based high stepper's terrific new single "Tightrope," which features her being followed around the woods by a couple of faceless figures who look like they strolled out of The Seventh Seal.
