Get outta town: Goodie Mob reunion in Atlanta this Sat.

Posted By on Fri, Sep 18, 2009 at 10:16 AM


In the mood for a road trip this weekend? If so, I'd suggest hopping in your car and making the short drive (at the most, 4 hours away) to Atlanta to witness the historic reunion of Goodie Mob.

For the uninitiated, Goodie Mob is one of the South's most influential hip-hop groups. Born and bred in the ATL, the group consists of members Khujo (Willie Knighton, Jr.), T-Mo Goodie (Robert Barnett), Big Gipp (Cameron Gipp) and Cee-Lo (Thomas Callaway) — who many may know as one half of the acclaimed band Gnarls Barkley (see members in above photo by Joeff Davis).

But before Cee-Lo hit the mainstream with Gnarls, he was down with Goodie Mob, cranking out conscious tunes with a Southern twist like "Soul Food," "Cell Therapy" and "Black Ice," among many other classics.

The group hasn't officially been back together since 2002 — although they did a few surprise, one-off shows here and there over the years — so the show in Atlanta this weekend is a rare treat. Also, this is the "A" we're talking about, where many celebs dwell, so expect to see some surprise guests.

For more on the show and the reunion, check out a big feature on the Atlanta edition of Creative Loafing's site.

Details: $40. 7 p.m. Sat., Sept. 19. Masquerade Music Park, 695 North Ave. Atlanta, Ga. 404-577-8178.
