185621, ROOTS AC 1st RESIDENCY SHOW REVIEW
Posted by bdietzdeuce2, Mon Jul-27-09 09:23 AM
I gotta say a couple things....
1. Best that i have seen the Roots crew since last yrs picnic....They were gr8....this is why i put them with Hov, Bruce , The Killers, Coldplay as my Top 5 live acts...and i rankem above Jigga

2.The music box is smaller than most high school auditoriums...extremely intimate....gr8 sound system/soundman

3.Actual show...started with a little Hip Hop 101...thought accompanied by Skillz the whole time....ripped thru all the classics(minus The Seed) and did how i got over which is dope live...Doug E Fresh(who was the special guest) was gr8....i wasnt excited when he was announced but he killed it...They did all the famous Dougie joints you kid think of....also Skillz did Nod Factor...

4.Bottom line is if your a Roots fan you gotta catchem in Ac at the music box...they played for well over an hour and was def worth the 50 bucks i paid to see them
