O2 and Moose on tour....

De La Soul

Not literally, this is a post about the last two gigs we went to, since neither of us posted anything about them.

Lets start with the latest one, it was De La Soul, it was epic and we managed to score that sweet picture with Trugoy the Dove (Plug two). The night featured guest appearances from Mos Def who performed 'Casa Bey' and the classic 'Umi Says'. Next guest was Prince Paul who did some fuckery skit about cooking beats. The group itself were amazing performing tracks from their 20 years long career. Finally, to rap up an amazing show they brought out Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz) to perform Feel Good Inc. and the crowd went wild, it was mind blowing!

The other gig was The Legendary Roots Crew from Philly, Black Thought, ?uestlove and Co. never disappoint, they are one of the best bands to watch live, don't take my word for it though, The Rolling Stone listed them on the best live act list. This show was no exception they rocked a packed Manchester Academy 1 venue and the whole place was shaking when they performed 'The Seed 2.0'. Below is a video of their swagger filled, playful entrance.

p.s. We were first row on both gigs, cos that is how we roll.
