Dave Matthews Band+the Roots
The countless college gigs they did in the late 90s make the Roots natural openers for fitted-cap patron saints Dave Matthews Band. Hell, after co-signing Asher Roth and hanging with Jimmy Fallon, who knows if theyll ever go back to playing for rap audiences again. Oh well, the more people that hear the fuming, apocalyptic material they were doing on Game Theory and Rising Down, the better. Dave Matthews will be warming up for a summer album that, I swear, is called Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King.
