Nappy Roots, whose 2002 record “Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz” sold millions and included the hit single “Po’ Folks,” is playing Formosa tonight. The band plays Roanoke kind of frequently, in no small part because the band’s Ron Clutch has family here. He is married to LaVette Swain, originally from Hardy, and her family still lives in the area.
Show starts at 9 p.m. Cover is $20, and from what I heard, there are only about 15 tickets left for the show. Call 400-8728 or check Formosa’s website. These guys put on a great show. This show only came together over the weekend, so I couldn’t get any info about it. Hope to have it together better next time.
