Lest you forget, the best house band in Late Night by orders of magnitude (I mean, did you see this?) put out records, too. And so How I Got Over, the first Roots release since they took the Jimmy Fallon job — “an album of doubts, parables and pep talks,” sez the Times — is out tomorrow (stream the whole thing here), which suggests that their gig tonight at Highline Ballroom will most probably be the Mother of All Roots Jams. It’s sold out, of course, but love always finds a way.
