Concert News

Erykah Badu and the Roots will be performing at the Chicago Theater May 30th. Her new CD, New Amerykah, Part 1: 4th World War, is an amazing listen and the Roots are a venerable band that continue to have success and influence in music after 15 years. Their newest album, Rising Down, comes out April 28th.

Watch the video for their 1999 collaboration, "You Got Me."

And when I was on the bus earlier this week I overheard a guy say that Stevie Wonder would be performing at this year's Taste of Chicago. If this bit of early morning commuting gossip is true, it might be worth dealing with the insanity that is the Taste.

(Oooh, it is true! The line up is here!)
