Check It (The Roots)

The Roots
July 10, 2008

2008 Twilight Concert Series
Best FREE concert I've ever been to.
Most talented hip hop performers I've ever heard.
Greatest experience I've had with a thousand other hot sweaty bodies.




You know it's good hip hop when there's a tuba involved. Stay with me here people, because things are about to get real good.

The best-most-greatest part of the entire night was the spontaneous pre-show entertainment. There was about an hour to kill in between the opening band and The Roots, and (try to imagine this) we were surrounded by thousands of hot sweaty bodies and each of them seemed to make it a point to brush into me. Every. Single. One. I really thought I was going to lose it, you know, because of all the thousands of sweaty bodies brushing into me, but then we noticed this awesome kid rockin' out on the bridge. (You'll even notice that at exactly 1:00 he gives me some lovin').



Watching him dance non-stop, I almost forgot all about the thousands of hot sweaty bodies brushing into me. The little man just kept going and going and going. Just doing his thang. Eventually more people began to notice. And then this happened...



Props to the other guy for bowing out while he still had his dignity. This little man can bring it! Thanks little man for the best pre-show entertainment EVER. I'm pretty sure you are the coolest kid I don't even know.

And to all those thousands of hot sweaty bodies, we'll see you next week!

Gina, how come we didn't get to see your moves in that dance competition? That was awesome. What a happening party. It's not that often that you get that many sweaty people in one place.
