CINCINNATI — The Woodward Theater in Over-the-Rhine is joining a growing list of music venues bringing a 1990s nostalgic kick to the Queen City this year.
Alternative hip-hop trio Digable Planet will kick off a reunion tour with a show at the Woodward at 7 p.m. July 18. Tickets can be purchased for $22 in advance at cincytickets.com or $25 at the door.
For those too young to remember, Mary Ann “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira, Craig “Doodlebug” Irving and Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler released their debut album, "Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space)," in 1993. The record featured several hits, including “Rebirth of Slick (A New Refutation of Time and Space)," and won the group a Best Rap Performance Grammy.
Digable Planets disbanded in 1994 after its second release "Blowout Comb." The trio began performing together again in 2005.
In other music news, My2K Tour will bring 1990s bands 98 Degrees, O-Town, Dream and Ryan Cabrera to PNC Pavilion on July 8.
My2K tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
