Sinead Throw Down Yer Arms tour 2005
November 17, 2005 05:03AM
So I went and saw the show last night & in case anyone was wondering the touring party is:

Sly & Robbie and full taxi gang incl. Bubbler Waul, Nambo, Lenky (yes that Lenky), One of the Brown Sugar girls on vox etc,

You get about 1 hr of Taxi gang hits then about 1.5 hours of roots choonz with Sinead,

It was kool to see Sly&Robbie playing some other tunes than the Black Uhuru / Taxi Gang setlist they've been doing for the last tours,

Notable deep roots moments were Y Mas Gan, Door Peep,

It struck me that SOC really has her heart in the right place with this project & the idea is to promote roots music to a wider audience,

Tour is coming to the US in about a week

I just read the liner notes on the album - 10% profits from the album going to support Rastafari elders in JA

man i haven't really been interested in anything about the SOC stuff - but i allowed myself to give it a try when her songs would come on XM radio, and i wasn't overly impressed or anything, but it wasn't "bad" in any way, shape, or form. but after reading this tiny snippet of a thread i went out and looked for her tour info, and this show would be SMOKING hot! it hurts my heart that her U.S. stops are so few:

12-5-05: boston
12-6-05: washington d.c.
12-7-05: tampa
12-9-05: new york city
12-10-05: philly

what's up with that?!

Its supposed to be a challenge. That's why they call it a shortcut. If it was easy, it would just be the way. -Road Trip
