As if we weren't already excited enough about the Roots Picnic: We just got an exclusive tip that Time Out New York cover star Alicia Keys will be playing a surprise set at tomorrow's show in Bryant Park. The two-day fest still has limited tickets left for tomorrow (today's show sold out), so get them fast. (If you'd don't get in, stay tuned for location details on Keys' upcoming surprise show in NYC on Oct. 9.)
No word yet on what time Keys will take the stage, but we do know that she'll be joining headliners David Byrne, Nile Rodgers and Wu-Tang Clan (all backed by The Roots) for a few songs. Mr. Alicia Keys himself, Swizz Beatz, is also on tomorrow's bill.
Day two of the fest is being dubbed a Love Letter to NY, and this sounds like a pretty damn perfect way to seal it with a kiss.
