212 N. 12th Street

When: May 19, 1993

What: Though often overlooked, the Roots’ debut album, Organix, was originally sold at the band’s shows in Europe and earned them enough buzz to garner them offers from major record labels, after which they signed with DGC Records and released their sophomore work (and what most folks mistakenly believe to be their first album), Do You Want More?!!!??!
