When: Sat., June 10, 5 p.m. 2017
As rap music reached peak perfection in the early 1990s, Arrested Development were leading the charge. The band’s breakthrough album, 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life of…, introduced audiences to its positive, gospel-influenced brand of enlightened hip-hop. Standout cuts from the early days include “People Everyday,” “Tennessee” and the politically charged “Revolution,” the last of which appeared on the soundtrack to Spike Lee’s 1992 film Malcolm X. After a brief hiatus in the late ’90s and early ’00s, AD reunited and have been touring and spreading their uplifting, conscious music ever since. Arrested Development headline the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival on Saturday, June 10, at the Waterfront Tent in Burlington. Operation: Prince featuring Craig Mitchell & the Purple Ones and Michael Mwenso & the Shakes open.
