As if the cheese-steaks weren’t reason enough to trek down to Philly, the icon of cool use of punctuation, ?uestlove, has announced the lineup for the third annual Roots Picnic Hometown Festival, which includes Nneka, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Mayer Hawthorne, the Very Best, Tuneyards, Das Racist, Bajah and the Dry Eye Crew, Pattern Is Movement, the Money Making Jam Boys, and headlined by Vampire Weekend (why them I’ll never know). Similar to last year where there was a reunion of Public Enemy, ?uestlove hints at another throwback reunion to tease us for the next couple months (watch the video to figure out who).
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Tickets go on sale This Friday (March 5, 2010) through the ticket price fixing bastards at LiveNation. The Picnic will take place on June 5th. All I want to know is, who wants to roadtrip with the Axiom?
