Go See Black Uhuru and Get Right With Jah at Grand Central June 15

Categories: Concert Preview
Black Uhuru's Derrick "Duckie" Simpson.
When was the last time you got right with Jah? A day? A week? A month? A year? An entire bloody decade?

Whatever the case, it's never too early to work some of those kinks out of your soul. So go smoke a little herb, fast for four days, re-dread your head, wrestle a lion, and contemplate the everliving.

Also, don't miss this Wednesday's mystical music sesh with reggae legends Black Uhuru.

Originally formed in 1972 under a slightly different name (simply Uhuru, meaning freedom in Swahili), this Kingston, Jamaica crew has reached many peaks atop Mount Irie, jamming out with Keith Richards, touring with the Clash, and winning the first-ever Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 1985.

But the band's also endured a lifetime of upheaval, burning through a dozen members in three decades while co-founder Derrick "Duckie" Simpson remained the only constant.

None of that's gonna matter, though, once "Shine Eye Gal" or "What Is Life?" hits your ears and starts shaking your soul. It's just gonna be an itesquake of good vibes.

Black Uhuru with Fourth Dimension and Spred the Dub. Wednesday, June 15. Grand Central 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The mystical music starts at 9 p.m. and tickets cost $20 plus fees via fla.vor.us. Ages 18 and up. Call 305-377-2277 or visit grandcentralmiami.com.
