The Roots haven’t exactly kept a low profile since the January release of Do You Want More?!!!??!. In the interim, the group has put out two double LPs, made guest performances on projects by producer Hal Willner and saxophonist Steve Coleman, and released numerous 12-inch remixes. At this Mother’s Day concert, let’s hope the band focuses on sharing the richness of its prolific output rather than adhering to the “greatest hits” formula that has marred previous D.C. performances. At 2 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $12. (202) 393-0930. (Bobby Hill)
