J Boog

When: Wed., March 21, 7 p.m. 2018

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. Also on the bill: Jesse Royal and Etana.

Price: $18-$75
