The Key Club in West Hollywood hosted the The Roots Jam Session, Saturday night

As we mentioned in our interview with Questlove, LAist was on the red carpet for the 5th Annual Roots Jam Session at the Key Club in West Hollywood. While we were hoping that this post would serve as a review of the best live band in the world jamming the night away with a little help from some of their friends, we'll happily settle for the chance to rub elbows with the big names, not-so-big names, and what's their names? that walked the red carpet on Saturday night in support of Rock the Vote and The Roots.

The unanimous decision of the night's highlight for those were actually able to get into the Key Club was a drum-off between Questo and Travis Barker (video after the jump). The highlight for me, besides talking to The Roots' drummer, was hearing the announcement that Raven-Symoné wasn't stopping for pictures because she wasn't wearing makeup. It didn't stop us, we still got a photo.
