Barrington Levy Comes to Nectar Lounge January 27

One of the greatest voices in the history of reggae music undeniably belongs to Barrington Levy. He's the man behind some of the greatest '80s dancehall tunes of all time: songs like "Here I Come," "Murderer," "Too Experiened," and a litany of others. No proper reggae collection is complete without his material, and if you haven't seen him live, I can vouch that's he's amazing every time he takes the stage.

I was excited when I saw a flyer in San Francisco last week announcing that he was coming to the Bay Area. I thought to myself at the time, 'if Barrington is coming to San Fran, he's probably doing a West Coast tour and hopefully, he'll hit Seattle too.' Turns out I was right and he's gracing Seattle with his presence next Tuesday, January 27, at the Nectar Lounge in Fremont.

Tickets are $20 in advance, slightly higher at the door, the flyer promises "special guests" whatever that means, and you have to be $21 to get in. But if you're a serious reggae lover, this show is NOT to be missed. After the jump, check out one of the best ganja tunes, ever written: "Under Mi Sensi."
