The masters of being cool swoop in on Asheville

When it was announced that super influential hip-hop trio Digable Planets would embark on a reunion tour, I knew that I was one of many who couldn't believe the news. Believe I did though when I saw that The Orange Peel was one of the stops on said tour! The deal only got sweeter when I saw that Camp Lo was on the bill too.

Known for their stylish execution and alternative flows, Digable Planets took the hip-hop world by storm with their 1993 release Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space). Their presence altered the perception of hip-hop and opened the door to a slightly more avant-garde side of things. Members Butterfly, Doodlebug, and Ladybug Mecca quickly became leading figures in the hip-hop game.

Fast forward to 1994 and the group had released Blowout Comb, another critically acclaimed album that pushed the boundaries of what hip-hop could be. Overtly political and smooth as can be, Digable Planets were doing it right. Sadly, it was only a short time after their second release that the group disbanded due to “creative differences.”

But hey, now they're back—original lineup and all. See why I was so excited? Sharing the stage with the group will be fellow hip-hop masterminds Camp Lo and their funky flow. Don't miss out on this one!
