Digable Planets Announce Reunion Show in Seattle
Alternative hip-hop outfit Digable Planets will ring in the new year by reuniting for a show in Seattle at the end of December.
The trio -- comprised of Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler, Mary Ann “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira and Craig “Doodlebug” Irving -- released two albums during their brief tenure in the '90s, including their 1993 debut, Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space), and the 1994 follow-up, Blowout Comb. After breaking up, Butler initiated work with Tendai Maraire as Shabazz Palaces, while Vieira and Irving pursued their solo careers.
This isn't Digable Planets' first reunion since disbanding in '95. The group first reunited in 2005, when they issued their compilation, Beyond the Spectrum: The Creamy Spy Chronicles. They came together again in 2011 for a handful of live gigs.
The trio will perform together once again on Dec. 30 at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle. The following night, New Year’s Eve, Shabazz Palaces will play the same venue.
