The Roots weren’t always the house band for Late Night on Jimmy Fallon. On December 6th, the prolific octet from Philadelphia released their 13th album to rave reviews. Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune and the Sound Opinons podcast ranks Undun as his number two album for 2011. Undun breaks new ground for the group as the album is a narrative. Hopefully they will have opportunities to perform live.

The Roots have not yet announced a nationwide tour, but they have a few shows upcoming.

Saturday 8:00 PM Indianapolis, Indiana tickets from $1234
Monday 7:00 PM Boston, MA tickets from $83
Friday 8:00 PM Silver Spring, Maryland tickets from $99
Thursday 8:00 PM Silver Spring, Maryland tickets from $101
