Erykah Badu, The Cannabinoids and The Gritz to play Granada on February 26.

If you listened to NPR's Wait, Wait… Don't Tell Me, as taped at the Winspear Opera House on Thursday night, when it aired this weekend, you know two things: 1) Erykah Badu, everyone's favorite local neo-soul superstar, was the special guest on the show's recurring “Not My Job” segment, and 2) as host Peter Sagal announced at the end of her appearance, Badu would be playing a show right here in her hometown on Tuesday, February 26, which, yes, is indeed the woman born Erica Wright's 42nd birthday.

Only, well, the NPR folks got one thing wrong: On the air, they announced that Badu's February 26 performance would take place at the House of Blues. Today — one day after the 16th anniversary of her seminal, debut, Baduizm album earned its release in 1997 — we can confirm through Badu's management team that the show will actually take place at the Granada Theater instead.

In fact, tickets for the show, which will run $25 (after fees and taxes, for once), are already on sale right here. And, in addition to a performance from Badu herself, the show will also feature sets from some of her closest friends and collaborators: Her DJ/live production collective The Cannabinoids will perform and serve as the event's hosts; her music director R. C. Williams' group, The Gritz, will also; and so, too, will her friends in Camp Wisdom.

Should be a time. Check out the event poster here.
