A Soulquarians reunion? Almost! Tomorrow night, after an affair last night that saw NBA champion/Mavericks guard JJ Barea and even Miss Universe stopping on by Rio Room for DJ Klever's set (Mavs Championship Party Tour 2011 is the best!), the posh Uptown spot will host another pretty massive deal.

Tomorrow night at the Travis Street venue, Dallas' own Erykah Badu will stop by the club (a regular thing for her at this point) to offer up another DJ set, and joining her will be longtime friend and collaborator Questlove.

No word on if Questo plans to remix the clips at this gig (we doubt it), but it should be a special event nonetheless.

The two have a long history together, dating all the way back to 1996, when Badu enlisted the future "Best Band in Late Night" drummer and the rest of The Roots to work on her 1997 debut, Baduizm. Click here to find out more on the tandem's personal history together, including a hilarious story from Questo about how sexy he thought Erykah was the first time he met her.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
