Devil's Pie: D'Angelo / This Film Shoud Be Played Loud
One night only!
The elusive and mysterious Michael Eugene Archer—better known by his stage name D'Angelo—became the hottest new R&B artist on the block in the mid 90s. Worried that his oozing sex appeal distracted from the music, he disappeared from the spotlight for over a decade—only to return in 2014 with Black Messiah, his masterpiece album. In Devil’s Pie, eye-popping performance footage, revealing home videos, and painfully honest interviews combine to present this once larger-than-life superstar at his most vulnerable, haunted by his past as he marches defiantly into an uncertain future.
