good Reggae in Baltimore/DC?

Can someone please point me in the right direction here. I haven't seen anything pass through (maybe I don't know where to look)

Especially as SNWMF rolls closer and I won't be there for the first time in some years.

Thanks!

ziggy's playing the white house. thats about as much as ive heard.

serious lack of live reggae music in the DC Area...except for local bands (in adams morgan for example)

places i check for larger acts; 930 club, state theater, zanzibar, crossroads, ramshead live,

Kingman & Jonah with roots master Claudius Linton are based in Baltimore... just had their first-ever live appearance at the Windup Space on North Ave. in B'more last week and are now back after 2 house-burning appearances at SXSW. Should be playing again in the DC/B'more area real soon... so keep your eyes and ears open for them!

... and the relick from Alborosie:





Nina Simone's version:

What a great song.

Have to say, although I usually rate alborosie's tune, I'm not terribly impressed by the Baltimore remix. Peace

Here are some of the clubs and try The City Paper, comes out on Weds. and lists all the clubs. May be online as well.

You can look these up yourself:

Yabba Pot near DC

9:30 Club in DC

There's also a club on Charles St. near North Avenue that has Reggae.. forgotten the name at the moment.

You can contact Sis Ichelle of Stryker's Posse for info.

As far as Inner Visions goes, I do not know of them playing in Baltimore. They certainly are not scheduled as yet this year. Perhaps they played there before 2006, before my time.
