All-Star Reggae night in Boston, Friday Feb. 15th

Members of Joint Chiefs, Pressure Cooker, Miracle Orchestra and Burning Spear unite for a night of Reggae at the Lizard Lounge.

The deal:
On Friday February 15th The Reggae Goldies and Mang Dub perform at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge Massachusetts. The Reggae Goldies is a collaboration of two of Boston's best reggae groups, The Joint Chiefs and Pressure Cooker. The Goldies perform a great blend of fun classics spanning several eras of Roots Reggae.

Mang Dub makes a rare appearance on Friday as well. Mang Dub, with its sparse pulsating grooves and come-and-go layers, is the true dub experience. Held together by synth-bassist JMARR (Burning Spear) and Keys Wizard SteveD, Mang Dub has released two full albums and has a third on its way. The drum chair is usually held by Tommy Benedetti of John Brown's Body, but will be filled in on this evening by Bill Carbone (Miracle Orchestra, et al). Mang Dub will also be joined by Jamaican Vocalist Extraordinaire "Journalist" who adds his own skewed take on the Reggae Tradition to the mix.

The show begins at 10pm with Mang Dub and is 21+. The Lizard Lounge is located at 1667 Mass Ave in Cambridge MA.
