In “Holy Cow!” news for fans of the neo soul/hip-hop collective the Soulquarians, Brooklyn Bowl, a venue/bowling alley based in the New York City burrough, has announced a surprise one-off show this Monday featuring Questlove and D’Angelo, two founding members of the group. The bad news? Tickets sold out after just an hour.
The duo is expected to perform songs from D’Angelo’s long-awaited comeback album at the show. The Questlove-produced relase is “99 percent” done, as previously reported, and expected to come out later this year.
For fans who can’t afford the arm and leg that resell tickets for the Brooklyn Bowl show will surely cost (they’re going for $250 a pair on Craigslist), D’Angelo and The Roots can be caught, albeit separately, at a Prince Tribute at Carnegie Hall on March 7. Fellow Soulquarian Talib Kweli is also on the bill for this show, so there’s always hope of a full-blown Soulquarians reunion in the near future.
This also isn’t the first time in recent history that the duo have appeared together on stage, as D’Angelo made a guest appearance during Questlove’s Bonnaroo Superjam earlier last year.
