Digable Planets are bringing their cool all around the U.S. with a 13-city reunion tour this summer.
The trio, who are responsible for the uber smooth hip-hop/jazz track “Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like That),” are hitting the road with fellow ’90s rap act Camp Lo as their opening act.
The reunion trek will kick off in Washington (state) at the Sasqutch Music Festival in May then continue on to the Essence Festival in New Orleans on July 2 and the Pitchfork Festival on July 16. Afterwards, the group will head around the Mid-West and South until finishing up in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Aug. 18.
The crew – Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler, Mary Ann “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira and Craig “Doodlebug” Irving – are best known for their critically acclaimed 1993 album, Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space), which nabbed nabbed No. 35 on our 50 Greatest Alternative Hip-Hop Albums of All Time list. But they’ve also slowly resurged back on the music scene — they rocked a New Year’s Eve show in Seattle.
And now they may do it in a city near you. Are you cool like dat? Or nah?
