Matisyahu2016 Matisyahu
8:00pm at The Orange Peel
(18+, $28 adv / $30 DOS)

When Matisyahu first started touring to packed clubs more than eleven years ago, it was prior to the release of Live at Stubbs, the now Gold record, and prior to that record’s single “King without a Crown” reaching #1 on the alternative rock radio charts. His performances were a raw expression of his spirituality at that time and were supported by musicians who played a foundation of roots reggae augmented by the energy of a rock trio. Fans latched on quickly for a variety of reasons, but in August of 2005, just months after the release of Live at Stubbs Matisyahu found himself on stage at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival with the de facto leader of improvisational rock-n-roll; Phish’s front man Trey Anastasio. Many early fans of Matisyahu remember that moment clearly not because of the songs he played in front of the 80,000 person crowd, but because of his seemingly unfettered confidence (or perhaps naiveté) in helping lead Trey and his band through an improvisational display of beat boxing and lyrical gymnastics during the two songs performed.

Released by the well-respected Canadian underground label, Profound Lore, Sorrow and Extinction instantly made waves among listeners and critics who found Pallbearer’s compositional paradox of vulnerability and might unparalleled in a metal world replete with imitators. Hailed by Rolling Stone as the #1 metal album of 2012, the album also received the coveted “Best New Music” stamp of approval from Pitchfork as well as being cited as one of the year’s best albums by outlets such as Spin and NPR.

builttospill Built To Spill
w/ Hop Along & Alex G
9:00pm at The Orange Peel
(18+, $20 adv / $22 DOS)

Twenty years on from first signing to Warner Bros. Records, Built To Spill is set to return in 2015 with its eighth studio album, Untethered Moon. That’s now two complete decades that one of America’s leading ‘indie rock’ bands has happily made its home on a major label, and in the process redefined that clumsy descriptor of independence by operating wholly and consistently under its own steam, taking the proper time to craft timeless songs and playing endless, epic shows to a growing grip of fans each year. Under the command of its constant leader, Doug Martsch, as well as a new rhythm section, Built To Spill’s creative process continues to ebb, flow and evolve in its own orbit, reemerging on record for the first time since 2009.

Gojira made a stunning international impact with the release of their 2012 album L’ENFANT SAUVAGE, earning the four-piece unanimous critical praise and numerous Best Of honors… “One of the most riveting and challenging metal records of the year. This quartet’s nothing if not an adroit and agile rock band, prone to acrobatic guitar lines and rhythmic shifts capable of inducing whiplash”, stated Pitchfork. Entertainment Weekly placed L’ENFANT SAUVAGE in their “Six Best Metal Albums of the Year” round-up, while SPIN raved… “every nanosecond of (their) proggy death metal is masterfully erected.”

sarawatkins Sara Watkins
8:00pm at The Grey Eagle
($17 adv / $20 DOS)

In some ways Sara Watkins' newest work is a vivid distillation of the omnivorous folk-pop-bluegrass-indie-everything-else she made with Nickel Creek, yet she makes audacious jumps that push against expectations in unexpected ways. These songs contain some of the heaviest moments of her career, with eruptions of thrumming B3 organ and jagged electric guitar. But it's also quiet, vulnerable, tenderhearted. In other words, bold in all the right ways.

Black Uhuru, formed by Duckie Simpson, recorded their debut album "Love Crises" in 1977 at Prince Jammy's famous studio in Jamaica (later re-released as "Black Sounds Of Freedom"). American female singer & dancer Sandra "Puma" Jones joined the band, and then came drummer Sly Dunbar and bass player Robbie Shakespeare. Together they developed a musical style full of deep bass thumps, loud drum slaps, sharp keyboards, long instrumentals with guitar riffs, whirly back round noises, echos and the signature"woh oh oh's" creating their "classic" sound.
