:: For the first time at Coachella, dub music arrives: Jamaican dub originator Lee "Scratch" Perry & Subatomic Sound System, Friday, April 12 set it off on Coachella's Gobi desert stage... BOOM! Word is you can tune into the show online, Friday, 6pm California time (9pm NYC time). Western U.S. tour follows including a second Coachella date Saturday, April 19. By the time the dust settles, we'll be back in NYC for an incredible event with Adrian Sherwood & The Congos to close out Red Bull Music Academy on May 30. Sure to sell out so cop tickets now if you don't want to miss this. At age 77, the Upsetter is still playing with fire.
We want to pause to say thanks to everyone who has helped this underground music flourish in a time when many consider all forms of reggae to be dead and the music industry decimated. Check this link for some free music from Lee Perry & Subatomic Sound System. Respect...
