Just like last year, I attended the Roots show at the 9:30 Club. They played two nights this week and I caught the second night. They blew it out! I was expecting a lot of new songs from their latest album with John Legend. Instead, they belted out a series of great tunes that spanned their career. Since they've become the house band for Jimmy Fallon, I feel like these two shows have a distinct "I just got out of school" vibe. It was joyous and sweaty with great guest spots by Skillz and Wale. I didn't dance as much as the guys next to me (one was doing his Flashdance impression..at the Roots. You know. That guy.) but I still had a ball.
