1. A Mini-History of
    The Root Down's
    Funk-Soul Trading Cards.

    Root-down-lead

    The Root Down has long been Los Angeles' premiere hip-hop/funk/live music weekly throwdown - a nightlife home base buoyed by Music Man Miles of Breakestra , DJ Dusk (R.I.P.), and an extended family of DJs, musicians, vocalists and emcees. Besides connecting the dots between all genres of soul and funk-based groove, the party's promo flyers were memorably eye-catching from jump: colorful trading cards printed with one of the crew's music heroes' visage on the front , and some fun facts about said artist, along with all pertinent event info, on the back. With The Root Down celebrating its 15-year anniversary tomorrow night with a big blowout in L.A. we thought we'd collect some of our favorite vintage flyers in commemoration.
