The Roots in NYC This Wednesday

From the J&R Newsletter--

The Roots Live in New York City:

The Roots Wednesday, July 14, 2004, 7:00 pm
Special Live Performance at City Hall Park, Autograph Signing

Philadelphia's The Roots, it can easily be argued, are the world's greatest live hip hop band. Formed in the late '80's around rapper Black Thought's deft rhyming and drummer ?uestlove's funky beats, their presence, influence and success have slowly grown over the past decade, culminating in 2002's brilliant Phrenology (they also have a special version of the CD that comes packaged with a DVD. Their live shows are legendary. . . The Roots celebrate the release of their eagerly anticipated new CD The Tipping Point with a special live performance in historic City Hall Park in downtown Manhattan (directions).

Of course, I probably won't be there. Too tired and broke to attend.
