Ever since being named the official house band on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Philly’s The Roots have been working hard. Now they plan to release their first ever concept album, Undun, this December. The album tells the story of the fictitious Redford Stephens as he analyzes his life from the afterlife. Along with the new record, The Roots are set for three performances at the Highline Ballroom in Manhattan on Nov. 29, Nov. 30 and Dec. 5. Tickets start at $25 for each, doors at 8 p.m.
