The Roots Welcome America on the Ben Franklin Parkway!

The Roots Welcome America on the Ben Franklin Parkway!

Happy 4th of July! It’s party time folks! Well, I support party time anytime, but independence, beer, BBQs and The Legendary Roots is certainly a reason to celebrate. Now, I don’t kid myself. It’s probably hard to get yourself pumped up when you are opening for the Poo Poo Dolls with a handful of songs so we might get “a take the money and run”/”the festival” set. But The Roots have a hot new album, How I Got Over, that their hustlin’ so it would certainly be in their best interest to throw down tonight. (I’m sending good vibes with the video above.) Just have a backup plan for when their set is over. It’s sad that Sheryl Crow doesn’t sound that bad this year. Wawa Welcome America, Ben Franklin Parkway, 8pm, FREE, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman
