Sometimes I think terrible reggae passes for listenable reggae more often than its rock or hip-hop counterparts because... marijuana maybe? I don’t know. My point is that a lot of bad reggae exists, but J Boog, thankfully, is not that.
Blending a perfect mix of brass, R&B vocals and subtle hints of pop, J Boog manages to rise above his yawn-worthy brothers and sisters in the genre to bring an interesting and enticing flavor of reggae that’s rare and exciting.
With Jesse Royal, Etana, $18-$75, Wed March 21, 7pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s, papertigersatx.com.
