Nights for Brotherhood
Don Martin's Brotherhood Sound throws the best dancehall party in three states. So where is everybody?
May 6, 2005
It's 10:45 p.m. and the show is just getting started. Don Martin grabs the mic and shouts, "All right everybody, Brotherhood Soundsystem Reggae Dancehall 101 starts now!"
A few yelps fly stageward as Martin and crew throw their hands up to the first track's roots reggae beat. The music gets loud. Four or five Burt's Tiki Lounge patrons dance and wiggle their way through the maze of chairs, tables and bystanders to get closer to the floor, where some dedicated reggae fans are already busting loose.
Gerunding • pop rock
The Sylvan Esso show at the Sunshine Theater is sold out already, which is a mega bummer. But! You can still go to the afterparty, which happens to include a performance by local psych-pop band GERUNDING, who are just as, if not more, cute than Sylvan Esso. Not that it’s a cuteness competition, just saying. It all goes down at the Moonlight Lounge at 11pm on Thursday, March 22. Even if you’re not going to the concert before ... you’re still invited. For ages 21+.
