Last week on A to Z we previewed St. Louis to Atlanta transplant Gotta Be Karim's Friday night  homecoming show at the Gramophone.

If you were wise enough to attend you know that it ended up being a wild time that featured performances from a half-dozen different members of The Force, including Rockwell Knuckles, Black Spade Vandalyzm, Family Affair, Tef Poe and Atlanta's own Sean Falyon.

Here's some photographic evidence of the awesomeness:
