Running an hour late for her midnight set at Buffalo Billiards on Saturday, Solange Knowles had to contend with sound problems and an audience obviously frustrated by the delay. Knowles, Beyoncé's kid sister, explained that she had rushed over from playing at Perez Hilton's party, where the line to get in snaked around the corner a few hours in advance. To her credit, Knowles, with two back-up singers and a full band behind her, kicked into high gear with a set of frenetic and infectious R&B pop that was worth the wait.
