[HIP HOP/JAZZ] + FRI., SEPT. 22
I feel like I’ve heard “Cool Like Dat” (full title: “Rebirth of Slick (Cool like Dat)”) in a dozen different movies and commercials. It’s one of those songs that’s both ubiquitous and a mystery. Where did it come from? What year was it even released? Actually, a lot of people probably know these answers, but I just learned it came from the ’90s hip-hop/jazz trio Digable Planets. Now reunited after 25 years, the group will play the August Wilson Center, joined by ’90s hip-hop group Black Sheep, whose songs you also probably know.
8 p.m. 980 Liberty Ave., Downtown. $35. All ages. 412-456-6666 or www.culturaldistrict.org
