Last post I dove into The Roots performance here in Iowa City, glorifying the whole event (I tend to do that).  However, you can now judge for yourself!  Cahillgrizz has posted footage of the concert, and the video quality is super!

You Got Me 1: Starts with the song You Got Me and becomes Sweet Child O’ Mine (Gun’s n Roses) towards the end

You Got Me 2: Captain Kirk’s epic guitar solo with Bad to the Bone (George Thorogood and The Destroyers)

You Got Me 3: Owen Biddle’s bass solo with pieces of Immigrant Song (Led Zeppelin)

Drum Solo: ?uestlove and F. knuckles hammer it out, the 5 minute mark is key

The Seed 2.0: Great encore, synchronized dancing 6 minutes in

As with any concert, video footage just doesnt do justice, but I’m certainly glad to have these videos to relive the experience.

Here’s to living in the past,
