DIGABLE PLANETS REUNITE!!

Recommended Posts

I saw Ladybug Mecca post about this on Facebook and was waiting for some sort of official news.  Well, here it is.  I'm so hype!  Hopefully this will lead to more shows and new music.  As some of you recall, they reunite in 2012. Ladybug was the first one out, then shortly before the new project came out (they only released one single), they called it off.  Here's the article...

Digable Planets Set For New Years Eve Reunion Show In Seattle

Digable Planets Set For New Years Eve Reunion Show In Seattle

It’s been a little over four years since anyone saw Butterfly, Doodlebug and Ladybug Mecca BKA Digable Planets in one place, at one time. Following their original parting of ways back in 1995, the trio has released one compilation record in 2005’s Beyond the Spectrum: the Creamy Spy Chronicles and since then, have worked on their own respective projects, with Butterfly going on to form genre-killers Shabazz Palaces alongside Tendai “Baba” Maraire. 

But the years have been long without the “Rebirth Of Cool” architects, and while their last attempt at a reunion fell through in 2012, the unanimously adored golden age trio appears to be giving it another run. On December 30th and 31st, Digable Planets will be getting the band back together, playing two consecutive nights at Seattle’s Neptune Theater for what will surely be a packed and anxious crowd, who will also be blessed by a performance from Shabazz Palaces. You can get the full scoop and ticket information by hitting the link below. Let’s hope this time it sticks. Revisit the trio’s catalogue on Spotify today.
