Now a whole new generation will find out what it’s like to be cool… like dat. Having already announced performances at Pitchfork Fest and Sasquatch! earlier this year, seminal hip-hop trio Digable Planets have made known what had been widely assumed: They’ll be hitting the road this summer.
The original lineup of Mary Ann “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira, Craig “Doodlebug” Irving, and Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler—aka Shabazz Palaces—will reconvene for a summer tour that includes stops at major festivals and clubs, with the promise of “more to come.” We sure hope so, because there’s no New York show listed.
You can view the their entire route of scheduled dates, while listening to the “Rebirth Of Slick”, below.
