This morning ?uestlove tweeted out a treat-- clips from The Roots first live show ever in 1993 at the Painted Bride in Illadelphia. AND YA DON'T STOP (except it's just a bunch of clips, so they do stop).



Even then, just with the Organix material, it was pretty obvious The Roots were a different kind of band. It's incredible that tracks like "Essawhamah?" still sound so fresh today, but considering the band's origins in live jazz/hip-hop fusion and their amazing hooks even from the beginning, it's not surprising.

For some more modern Roots Crew action, check out our video from SXSW.
