The Roots Picnic

Do you love The Roots? Do you love picnics? Few people on this planet don't like either of those things, so I'm guessing you do. Tomorrow, June 5th, in Philadelphia, The Legendary Roots Crew are hosting a big ol' picnic featuring some seriously awesome live music. The Roots will be joined by one-of-my-favorite-live-acts The Very Best, soul singer Nneka, Wu-Tang star Method Man, some indie band that everyone seems to love (Vampire Weekend), newcomers Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew, and more. That last group (Bajah + The Dry Crew) is a pretty awesome dancehall/hip-hop group that's starting to get some pretty good hype--along with backing from The Roots, Talib Kweli, and, my favorite, El-P. Bajah is hosting a contest giving away tickets to the Picnic, so if you want to go to this--and anyone in or near Philly should--enter the contest. If you don't win, buy tickets anyways. Support live music. Support picnics. (Details below.)
