If you aren’t one of the 80,000+ people who have peeped the footage of Snarky Puppy and Lalah Hathaway performing “Something” at the Jefferson Center in Roanoke, Virginia yet, then you HAVE to stop what you’re doing and listen right now. Straight up this is insanity for your ears created by some of the best in the business right now. With the Snarky crew getting down and dirty with their groove and Lalah hitting two tones at once (WHAT?! See ~6:12), this video is the business.


Recorded on March 8th, 2013, Snarky Puppy and Lalah Hathaway performed at the Jefferson Center as a benefit to their work as a non-profit arts organization. “The hall brings world class music to the local community through the Music Lab, providing education and recording space for local children.” It would seem that the center got much more than they paid for with this performance; check out Snarky Puppy ft. Lalah Hathaway performing “Something”:
