Most Fridays at the 201 are now dedicated to old timey rocksteady, ska and soul with a heavy emphasis on my personal favorite, Desmond Dekker. His best tracks always begin with some shambling drum fill that sounds like the kit being thrown down a flight of stairs, as in “Music Like Dirt”. We’ll have tons of other artists such as Alton Ellis, The Jamaicans, The Ethiopians, Jackie Mittoo and of course Lee Perry and the Upsetters. The 201, @ 201 Westminster St. downtown. Free!
