So … classes at the University of New Mexico resume on Monday, Jan. 15 with the beginning of the Spring 2018 semester. My, how time flies. Wanna bet there’ll be a reggae concert Downtown in the week preceeding this auspicious event? It’ll have to be a concert capable of bringing groove, hope and the smell of burning rope back to a motley crew of undergrads—who without pacifying Caribbean rhythms would otherwise be doomed to an initial six weeks of the term locked in a terminal battle with cold weather, bad food, untrustworthy roommates and unforgiving faculty! You’re right to bet on all the above, because on Wed. Jan. 10, Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW) will be the site of something spectacular, in the way Jah himself is someone spectacular. How’s this for a lineup: Denver’s award-wining Tatanka, rootsy reggae folkster E.N Young, PosiTrax and Burque’s own fantastic jugglers of the multi-genre reggae-based sounds kids these days just positively dig, ¡Revíva! Boom. $12 • 8pm • 13+.
