This weekend, Philadelphia was the place to be for music thanks to The Roots Picnic. The event featured performances from Diplo, The Cool Kids, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Gnarls Barkley and of course The Roots.
The picnic took place on Festival Pier at Penn's Landing, where cool breezes from the Delaware River were thankfully able to relieve the crowd from the 90+ degree heat.
Though the opening acts were hit-and-miss, Sharon Jones, The Roots and Gnarls Barkley closed out the night with a bang. One guy was actually moved to propose to his wife in the audience during their ballad "You Got Me." Roots' fans were also treated to a stunning solo from bassist Leonard Hubbard, who recently left the group after more than a decade.
The sun was rough and the venue could have used some seating, but if they do this again with an equally amazing lineup, The Roots Picnic will be worth a yearly pilgrimage to Philly. Below, our pictures of the the day's action.
