Deja vu: The Roots

Just like last year, I attended the Roots show at the 9:30 Club.  They played two nights this week and I caught the second night.  They blew it out!  I was expecting a lot of new songs from their latest album with John Legend.  Instead, they belted out a series of great tunes that spanned their career.  Since they've become the house band for Jimmy Fallon, I feel like these two shows have a distinct "I just got out of school" vibe.  It was joyous and sweaty with great guest spots by Skillz and Wale.  I didn't dance as much as the guys next to me (one was doing his Flashdance the Roots.  You know.  That guy.) but I still had a ball.
