Best live show I could've imagined. They were absolutely on point, so live and amped and the solos (about 7 or 8 minutes each) were unbelievable. Plus at the end of the show they did about 12 covers everything from Black Betty to Yung Joc.
Insane, I would've paid triple to see this show.
Did they do a lot of their old stuff or newer stuff? Or was it a good mix of the new and old? And I just looked at their tour schedule and they tour with Talib Kweli lot, but not in Canada. Don't think Ill make it to one of their shows, but that's awesome you went.
I am listening to Dan The Automator-A much Better Tomorrow
So far it's decent.
It was a good mix of both. I am a pretty big Roots fan and I have Illadelph Halflife, Do You Want More?!!??, and Phrenology but I still didn't recognize a lot of the songs which I am sure could be off of their upcoming CD Game Theory. They did most of their classics ("The Seed", "You Got Me", "Proceed", "What They Do") and obviously "Don't Feel Right" but they changed up the beat on a lot of them. It is literally impossible to explain how amazing the solos were especially Douglas and Kamal on guitar and keyboard.
When they covered Award Tour I almost lost my shit, that is one of my favorite songs ever. They also did the new Ghostface (name slips my mind), It's Going Down, Why You Wanna, I Get Around, One More Chance, 2 Ray Charles Songs, Jungle Boogie, Black Betty and a few others.
