Israel Vibration, Roots Radics, Blaze Mob at The Echoplex, August 6

 

Date: August 06, 2014Israel Vibration

Time:  9:00 pm

Thanks to our astonishing local reggae resource Dub Club, this visit by Israel Vibration and Roots Radics is yet another world-class musical showdown. Long-running vocal trio Israel Vibration met in a Kingston medical rehabilitation facility and rose, starting way back in 1970, from a punishing life as polio-stricken ghetto youth to become a crucial link in the evolution of Jamaican vocal groups. With hard-hitting, hardcore Rastafarian–messaged songs like “Why Worry” and “Bad Intention,” Israel Vibration ably spanned the gap between the old-school likes of Mighty Diamonds and such comrades as Culture and Black Uhuru. Tonight, with accompaniment from the superb, veteran hard-dub studio players Roots Radics, it’ll be an evening of defiant, weaponized spirituality and high-impact musical perfection.
