We’ve always known Philadelphia transplant Questlove was a talented drummer—beyond his work with the Roots, he had a role on D’Angelo’s neo-soul masterpiece Voodoo, Erykah Badu’s Baduizm and Mama’s Gun, and Fiona Apple’s Extraordinary Machine, among others. But the past few years have seen him emerge as a Renaissance man of sorts, designing sneakers for Nike, associate-producing Broadway show Fela!, DJing at Brooklyn Bowl, and appearing regularly on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Last year, his show Shuffle Culture premiered at BAM to rave reviews, and he just finished his first semester as a professor at NYU. Tonight, join his class when he and Herbert Holler take you to school at S.O.B.’s.
