The Roots is a household name these days, thanks to the group's role as the impeccable-sounding house band on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show and the ubiquity of drummer/bandleader Questlove. However, the Philly natives have been quietly putting out quality albums for nearly 30 years. Although it’s defined as a hip-hop collective, the band defies genre classification as it moves swiftly between varying styles that reflect its thorough knowledge and appreciation of music history. Frequent Roots collaborator Erykah Badu is, of course, a Dallas legend who frequently appears on local stages as a performer, activist and DJ. At Toyota Music Factory, a 50-piece symphony of local musicians will accompany The Roots and Badu, which means a new and eclectic take on both artists' catalogs, plus some out-of-left-field covers. Amazon's Twitch Channel will livestream and record this show, so your shouted cheers and song requests may be preserved for posterity.
