You wouldn't think the American Civil War and reggae music would be closely associated. Nothing's less Rasta than people warring over states rights and abolition, but John Brown's Body begs to differ, at least when it comes to their name. Originally a marching song for the Union, John Brown's Body is becoming more well known in reggae and jam circles as an ever evolving act, recently moving from a more traditional Bob Marley-esque style to a modern jam-infused show. Rounding out the show is the Passafire, another modern reggae act which sounds a lot like Sublime (in a good way). Tickets are $12 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
