Tonight at 8:15, or 5:15 for you West Coast readers, you will be able to watch the best live band in hip-hop, the Roots, perform live in New York City without leaving the comfort of your computer chair. Or wherever it is you browse Prefix from. As someone who has seen the band in concert six or seven times, I can safely say that you need to make sure this is in your plans for the night. The Roots’ performance is part of an initiative called “Rebuild The Dream” that aims to move the political focus to creating new jobs. It’s being hosted by activist Van Jones, who will also be joined by DJ Shepard Fairey.
