Yes people - I am no longer the only person in the world who hasn't seen The Roots live. I don't know how I've managed not to see them live yet but it was worth the wait. Right on time too, before they start working as the house band on Late Night and stop touring for a while...the full line up last night was ?uestlove & Black Thought, Kamal (keyboard), F Knuckles (percussion/hype man/choreographer), Captain Kirk (guitar/sax/BVs), Damon "Tuba Gooding Jr." Bryson (sousaphone/ running around like a madman), and Owen Biddle (bass/ trying very hard to dance).
?uestlove & Frankie Knuckles go at it
You Got Me
As soon as I find a video with one of the many awesome Tops/ Temps style routines I'll add it. Shout outs to my partners in crime & losing our minds & voices completely - Katy, Tanya & Justice.
