The Roots will be celebrating the holidays with a short East Coast tour between Christmas and New Years. Dates include a stop at Montclair, NJ's The Wellmont Theatre on December 27. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, November 3 at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

In other news you may have seen Roots member Black Thought in a supporting role on the just-finished first season of HBO's The Deuce where he played pimp Reggie Love. The show, which was created by David Simon and George Pelecanos (both of The Wire) and is about the NYC sex industry in the '70s, is well worth catching up on if you haven't seen it yet. He's also collaborated with Clear Weather on a pair of sneakers available exclusively at Barneys. Watch promo piece where Black Thought discusses The Deuce, below.
