The Roots Official Listening Party
Immediately following their concert at Fox Theatre with Erykah Badu, the Legendary Roots Crew stopped by Detroit’s Confidential Lounge to rock an afterparty with the city. The night started with Octane (of Octane & Illite) DJing on his own, before Questlove and Black Thought came through. Black performed several of the group’s seminal hits along with selections from the new album Rising Down, and ?uestlove murdered the tables till about 3 A.M.

Binary Star
There was also a Binary Star show at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit. Even though no representatives attended—hence the lack of photos—the duo of One Be Lo and Senim Silla is never to be missed. The legendary pair was joined by Jay Spliff, Alf-1, Steelo, and the Dubphonics.

    You genuinely can make your baits really seriously enhanced in every way to be detectable as easily as possible and as
    active in water as possible, to highlight your baits to fish senses.
