There's no diggity, no doubt that we're oddly delighted to hear that Blackstreet's hitting the road, and with Ginuwine, no less. These '90s R&B crooners are going to tear up the stage at the Celebrity Theatre with some of your favorite hits from around 15 years ago.
Blackstreet's got us excited, but they're not the only crew coming to town. We've got a spoken word set from punk legend Henry Rollins, Swedish pop songwriter Jens Lekman, Tucsonans Calexico, plenty more in this week's incoming.
