The Roots

The Roots @ Stubb's

Caught The Roots at Stubb’s last night. Best funk-rock show I have seen in a while. The guitar player (?? Kirk Douglas ??) was out of control; He sang the Jill Scott vocals on “You got me” and then laid into this insane fret board adventure that busted me up like a tidal wave.

Another highlight: Questlove leading a cover of one of my favorite Michael Jackson tracks, “Smooth Criminal”.

I like The Roots. They used to play all the time in Philly.

Was Cody Chestnutt with 'em? Cody has got some real smoove groove tracks and wrote "the Seed". I actually teaching my spinning cals to that song...good groove.
