I was looking for some excuse to post the new single by Estelle and I found it in the Chronicle. Apparently the Roots, Gym Class Heroes and Estelle will all be at the Backyard on Sunday, October 12th. I'm not a big fan of Gym Class Heroes but the Roots are always a good show to catch. If you've never been to the Backyard you should go because this is the last season it will be open.
For those of you who don't know, there was a big shopping complex built around the Backyard and they have pretty much given the classic venue the squeeze. So don't park at Lowes, or whatever other box store is there they will tow your ass...jerk wads. The ironic thing about that is the Backyard was there first, and most of those stores are closed by the time the concerts are going on. But what're you gonna do? You can't fight city hall or whatever.
Check out the Estelle videos after the jump...

I was going to add a video by the Roots too, but they're on an imprint of Universal Music Group. So if you want to see some Roots videos you're going to have to go directly to the UMG YouTube channel, which I refuse to link. Man, I really hate UMG.
