Hip hop's best live show
The principle problem with a a massive concert line up, is one tends to forget some acts are even on the ticket. For Tim and I, the Roots are a prime example of this.
Swept into the excitement over Rage Against the Machine, Manu Chao, Arcade Fire and other headliner acts we often miss the smaller let glorious eight letters of type on the third row of the Sunday section on the poster. Said row reads "The Roots."
Magazines, message boards and insiders regularly peg The Roots as hip hop's best live show and an experience not to be missed. On the Coachella message board, the anxious masses have named the Roots their most anticipated hip hop act over more mainstream fair such as Ghostface Killah.
Needless to say, we're stoked.
