The four of us—Jumbo, Vurs, Shines, and myself—were just stuck in a 28-square foot elevator for 20 minutes. Not a good look for four dudes on a 90-degree day. The show must go on and right now they’re recording a segment for NPR at the host’s apartment. Upon entering the kitchen I discovered an interesting concert poster of a Digable Planets show at DV8 way back in February 1995, less than six months after the release of the group’s second album Blowout Comb. And here’s a fact most people don’t know: Frontman Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler hails from Seattle’s Garfield High School.
