The Roots Play "The Colbert Report" - Plus New Video for "Birthday Girl"
Speaking of musicians, hip-hop, and Philadelphia, local heroes The Roots were the house band of sorts on "The Colbert Report" last night, where they played homage to Jimi Hendrix with a smashing--literally--rendition of our nation's anthem. Colbert's been doing his show live all this week, so everything you're watching is in real time.
In other Roots video news, the band released its video for Rising Down reject "Birthday Girl" starring porn star Sasha Grey. Watch that video below (possibly NSFW):
