Concert Review: Rootz Underground

The Rootz Underground’s show on Sunday night (September 13th) at the Flamingo Cantina probably ranks as one of the most fun and craziest concert experiences of my life so far.  We ended up with some priceless stories to tell, thanks to the band, and also to the fact that we showed up so early.  [Continue]

What I'm listening to this week: Damian Marley

What I'm listening to this week: Damian Marley

Welcome to Jamrock – 2005 I’ve talked about Damian Marley several times already on this blog, mostly in reference to other people, and considering that Welcome to Jamrock is one of my favorite reggae albums ever, I thought it was about time to give it its own review.  It was almost an accident how I [Continue]

Movement – 2008 After seeing Rootz Underground perform at a KEXP event in the Austin City Limits studio at KLRU during SXSW last year, a non-reggae devoted friend of ours was so taken by the band’s performance that he immediately downloaded Movement. Having sat through many a reggae album at our house, he kept telling [Continue]

Today's Musings: My Tribute to Bob Marley

Ahead of tomorrow’s “What I’m listening to this week”, I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge my love of reggae music and especially Bob Marley. I first started listening to Bob Marley in college – granted, as most do – when one of my roommates ordered the Songs of Freedom box set we [Continue]
