Lateef the Truth Speaker Joins Galactic In Studio, On Stage
Galactic has confirmed that Lateef the Truth Speaker, who will appear on the bands forthcoming disc, also will join the group for a couple shows on its upcoming winter tour. The rapper will open the groups two gigs at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club on February 9 and 10 (with the Bridge also on the bill for the 10th). In addition, Lateef the Truth Speaker will perform with Galactic for part of their set, likely offering a taste of the bands upcoming studio release. The tour will open on January 24 at the New Daisy Theatre in Memphis, route to the north and then and close out on February 19 at Tipitinas Uptown, with Papa Mali on board as opener for most of the dates (as he will be later this month for Galactics New Years Eve run).
