If you missed Black Slate when they came through last year, now’s your chance to see them. They have quickly become one of our favorite old-is-new again bands and if you love conscious live reggae, this is your jam.
Black Slate is a roots reggae band hailing from the 1970’s who backed many of the Jamaican artists touring Europe such as Ken Boothe, Dennis Brown and Delroy Wilson. They had their first hit in ’76 with the anti-mugging song, “Sticks Man”. They took a hiatus and returned in 2013 with a new EP World Citizen and have just released their newest, A Peaceful Demonstration.The lineup features original founding members Anthony Brightly, Chris Hanson, Desmond Mahoney and vocalist Jesse Brade.
