Je suis irie! In what can only be described as a random act of Jah
, two internationally famous reggae acts are simultaneously performing across town from each other in Colorado Springs tonight.
With virtually no publicity, The Might Diamonds
will be playing what amounts to the stealth gig of the year at Spice Island Grill
, the tiny Jamaican restaurant located at 10 N. Sierra Madre Street.
Meanwhile, Pato Banton
, who's best known for his collaborations with UB40
and the English Beat's Rankin' Roger
, will be at the Mighty Culture Sports Bar
at 2355 Platte Place.
With Bob Marley
's 70th birthday just a week away, expect to hear a whole lot of Wailers songs at both.
