Since the Nineties, Anthony B has brought a cool, relaxed savoir faire to the Bible-thumping wing of the reggae world, garnering a steady stream of hits since his classic "Fire Pon Rome." Nowadays, however, he may be best known for "Lighter," the Wyclef Jean collabo that worked its way onto local urban radio playlists last fall. It's that nontraditional audience that Anthony B wants to reach when he performs a free show this Friday; neophytes are encouraged to check him out.
