Traditionally, mobile soundsystems were the conduit to bring music to the people of Jamaica, both live and recorded. These sounds competed for their followings by having the loudest system, playing the best songs and dubplates, and having the most talented artists perform at their dances. It is from this blueprint that we bring you High Power, an evening ram jammed with reggae's past, present, and future.

Performers will include Seattle-based recording artist, Bobby Hustle Official Page, AFAR MUSIC GROUP's Pittsburgh-based recording artist ORieL, and Pittsburgh-based recording artist and Dub Yoga boss, Jah Ques. Selectoring duties will be held down by reggaeville's Dan Dabber, who will be joining us from his home base of Philadelphia.

This show is 21+. $5 admission.
