Talib Kweli & The Roots @ Highline Ballroom (more by Jacob Blickenstaff)
The Roots

In a bit of shuffling, Digable Planets have cancelled their tour with Common Market and Dujeous. According to a post at Hyena Records, "there were 'irreconcilable differences' in Digable Planet's camp, so they've pulled the plug on the entire tour." That includes the show that was supposed to happen at Highline Ballroom in NYC tonight, April 1st (no foolin).

In their place will be The Roots. The Roots were supposed to play yesterday (3/31), but they postponed it to today (4/1 @ 11PM). Ticekts are now back on sale, and still available for many of the other upcoming residency dates.

The Roots were one of a few hip hop groups that played the All Points West festival in 2008. Check out which hip hop groups are playing it in 2009.

This leaves the door wide open for Arrested Development.

Meh, I wanted to see Dujeous on that stage more so than Digable.

Unfortunate, but not surprising. Ahh, those creamy spies.

"I'm so jealous. What a replacement!"

The post may have implied that the show was a replacement, but I assume 3/31 Roots tickets holders got their tickets switched to 4/1, and Digable Planets ticket holders got their money back.
